A husband's acceptance of Shabbat


An individual within a community must accept Shabbat early when the community does, assuming there is no local congregation which will accept it closer to sunset.

A wife is not bound by her husband's acceptance of Shabbat; she may still perform melachah. However, she may not be permitted to perform melachah on his behalf.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:38)

Have a great day,
