Status of a tray beneath candlesticks on Shabbos


A candlestick tray which is dedicated for that purpose, and which is beneath the lit candlesticks, is muktzeh for all of Shabbos; this is called basis l'davar ha'assur. Even if the candlesticks are removed, the tray remains muktzeh. Placing a non-muktzeh item on the tray along with the candlesticks before Shabbos does not help, because the tray is dedicated for use with the candlesticks.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:22:11)

Have a great day,
