What time does Shabbos end?


[As always, note the disclaimer that appears on top of this blog.]

In most of North America, it is sufficient to wait until 50 minutes after sunset for Shabbat to end, and this is equivalent to the 72-minute wait observed in some places in Europe. It varies based upon latitude. However, it is appropriate for those who are able to wait a full 72 minutes, even in North America.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:62)

Have a great day,
