The question is for food on Yom Kippur, or Gebrokts or Kitnyos on Pesach (for those that do not eat them), are they Muktzeh?


Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 88:3 says they are not.

  • It mentions these specific cases?! – SimchasTorah Jan 26 '11 at 23:51
  • @SimchasTorah No, I took the liberty of applying his rule regarding things that are אסור לאכילה ומותר להנאה to your cases. – WAF Jan 27 '11 at 1:27
  • OK thanks for the input I think Reb Akivah Eiger says the food is Muktzeh on Yom Kippur though – SimchasTorah Jan 27 '11 at 2:26
  • @R'WAF, but gebrokts is אסור בהנאה for those who forbid it (AFAIK; CYLOR). But פמ״ג א״א שלח:ג (cited also by the ביה״ל there) may be relevant. As always, CYLOR. – msh210 Jan 27 '11 at 3:16

    @msh210, Really? Ad k'dei kach? If some water falls on a gebrokts-keeper's matza, he can't even give it to his dog? If a gebrokts-keeper is at a meal at which both gebrokts and non-gebrokts are served, he can't pass the gebrokts to his Litvish co-diner? – Isaac Moses Jan 27 '11 at 15:53

Firstly, I don't think people make food muktza for Yom kippur since they need it for children. (inedibles like raw chicken would be just like shabbos).

As far as food being asur, the Mishna Berura 308:170 quotes "poskim" that an object's muktza status depending on the owner is only when the object is rejected because of its poor quality, but if someone made a neder and the object is now forbidden, he can still move it since it is permitted to others. That should apply to Yom Kippur (Children), Gebrochts (us non-gebrochtsers) and kitnios (sefardim).
