Practical Halachah: Cooking on Shabbat, Part 5: Leaving a Pot on the Fire for Shabbat

In this class we examine the laws of cooking on Shabbat related to the rabbinic prohibition of ‘shehiya’ (regulations for leaving a pot on the fire before Shabbat). This encompasses the requirement of using a ‘blech’ (a sheet of metal) to cover the fire beneath the pots. Learn the practical application for using hotplates and crockpots, leaving food in an oven, and the three areas on the blech that are of differing halachic status.
