According to Halacha, is it permissible for a Jew to benefit from selling non-Toiveled utensils to non-Jews or no? For example, if Jews decide to buy up the rights to a silverware company that sells silverware made from non-Jews, without Toiveling, would that be fine (if the customers are non-Jews)? Or are non-Toiveled utensils that Jews own similar to chametz on Passover which they can’t benefit from?

  • Beth Yosef 120:8 citing Mahiri Berabh permits merchants to sell items that haven't been immersed. This is widely accepted in practice to my observation. It is debated whether restaurants may rely on this BY or not. Jan 29 at 17:49
