Shabbos in the Kitchen Q & A

Shabbos comes every week, with all types of questions…

Are twist ties permissible to use?

What is the way to clean up a spill?

Can napkins be folded into nice shapes?

How may one reheat food?

Is it permitted to use a whipped cream aerosol?


Cutting, grinding, cooking, tying, muktzeh, opening packages… how can you know what to do?

Now there’s a way! Shabbos in the Kitchen gives the answers to over 600 common dilemmas — in a user-friendly format. Plus, each section contains a handy summary of its particular halachah.

Easy to read, with a question-and-answer style and comprehensive index, this sefer will enhance your knowledge of both the underlying issues and the practical laws of Shabbos in their most common areas of application — the kitchen and dining room! Whether you’re a busy housewife who needs on-the-spot answers, a layman who wants to learn the basics, or a scholar who is looking for a quick and reliable review, here is a guidebook that no home should be without.


“Rabbi Avi Wiesenfeld has already achieved renown for his expertise, knowledge and clarity in the presentation of relevant halachic topics… I have no doubt that Shabbos in the Kitchen is consistent with the standard of his previous seforim, and that both the beginner and the experienced will have much to learn from its contents.”

HaGaon HaRav Shraga Feivel Zimmerman

“Shabbos in the Kitchen is a comprehensive study of many melachos of Shabbos, combining clear principles and definitions with the common practical applications of the principles. I am confident many will benefit greatly and gain a clear working knowledge of some of the more complicated melachos.”

HaGaon HaRav Yitzchak Berkovits
