Using someone else's lulav, Part II


We have said that one may use someone else's lulav without asking, albeit only gently, since we believe that people are happy to have others use their property for a mitzvah.

One may only do this with a minor's lulav, though, if there would be absolutely no damage to the lulav. This is because children are incapable of forgiving harm done to them, in the eyes of the law.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:107)

Have a great day,
