Of tables and candlesticks


We have said that a table becomes muktzeh if it supports or holds a muktzeh item when Shabbat enters.

However: If the table also supports or holds a permitted item, and that permitted item is more important to the owner than the muktzeh item, then the table does not become muktzeh and may be moved on Shabbat.

Example: If challah for Shabbat is on a Shabbat table when Shabbat begins, and candlesticks are on the table as well, the table does not become muktzeh.

(Shemirat Shabbat k'Hilchatah 20:55, 20:59)

Have a great day,
