I once heard there is a Chazzon Ish that speaks about a possible prohibition about carrying (without any need for it) on Chol HaMoed? Is there any such Chazzon Ish or perhaps other poskim that speak about this (either way?)

  • Why would there not be a prohibition? All melachot are prohibited on Chol Hamoed unless there is a reason to permit it – Double AA Sep 22 '13 at 15:17
  • @doubleaa where does it say that (all malachos) – Yehoshua Sep 22 '13 at 15:30
  • Shulchan Aruch OC 530 – Double AA Sep 22 '13 at 15:36
  • @DoubleAA ?? Maybe this is from the miktzas malachos that are muter? – Yehoshua Sep 22 '13 at 18:03

    @DoubleAA See my answer! – Yehoshua Sep 24 '13 at 9:04

See Shevat HaLevi Chelek 6 Siman 68 at the end where he addresses this question. He brings those that are machmir however he says the pashtus from the gemorah (shulchan aruch and poskim) that carrying on chol hamoed is muter even without any essential need to carry.

  • @mevaqesh please rephrase your question I don't understand – Yehoshua Dec 5 '16 at 2:28

    If in general melacha is forbidden unless there is some reason to permit it, why would this be different? What is the reason (for those poskim) who are lenient? – mevaqesh Dec 5 '16 at 2:30
