Immersing utensils on Shabbat and Yom Tov, Part I


There is some debate as to whether one may immerse utensils on Shabbat or Yom Tov. Therefore, one should give the utensil to someone who is not Jewish, and simply borrow it back; utensils borrowed from people who are not Jewish may be used without immersion.

Ordinarily, one may not give a gift on Shabbat or Yom Tov, but this is permitted because the gift is for the sake of Shabbat/Yom Tov itself.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 323:7, Yoreh Deah 120:16; Mishneh Berurah 323:34)

Have a great day,
