Enabling others to sin


One may sell or rent an entity to a Jew who will use it to violate Shabbat, so long as (a) the Jew could also acquire such an item elsewhere, and (b) the item could also be used in permitted ways.

This applies, for example, to selling kitchen equipment or renting an apartment with a kitchen to a Jew who likely will cook on Shabbat.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:66)

Have a great day,
