Crushing With Two Shinuyim On Shabbat

The Daily Halacha Moment - Crushing with two Shinuyim On Shabbat

״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


May One Crush with two shinuyim On Shabbat?


Even though in general it is not permitted to crush pepper or even salt that has not been previously crushed, if it is needed, one may crush it by applying two shinuyim: by crushing it with the blade of a knife and within a bowl or plate that is not normally used when crushing.[1] One may crush salt or pepper with one’s hands, since this is a highly unusual way of crushing them.[2]
