Evaluating graf shel re'i


We permit moving muktzeh items from their location on Shabbat if they are repellent, they are located in a site one wishes to inhabit, and they are preventing use of that space. Such items are called "graf shel re'i".

The evaluation of "repellent" depends upon the condition of the item, as well as the sensitivities of the person who wishes to inhabit the space.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:21:2)

Have a great day,
