Electric Blankets On Shabbat

The Daily Halacha Moment - Electric Blankets 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 use an electronic blanket on Shabbat?


It is permitted to use an electric blanket on shabbat, provided one does not move the knob that adjusts it. It is proper to place scotch tape on top of the knob in order to prevent oneself from accidentally adjusting the blanket on shabbat.[1] Note this only applies to the older electric blankets that work when plugged in but not ones which are responsive to sensing a person's presence are forbidden.
