  • in reply to: Yom Tov oven temperature adjustment #865574

    in response to Shticky Guy, I wanted to share two comments.

    1) Regarding a modern computer-controlled oven with a Tweaker, Rav Belsky, Shlita, and others permit adjusting the effective temperature of the oven both up and down, using the technique of extending the present phase of cycling. The Torah Technologies Org web site has his ksav hechsher for the Tweaker and more information.

    2) Regarding an old style “landlord oven”, Rav Blumenkrantz zt”l in his Pesach Guide quotes Rav Moshe Feinstein zt”l saying “one may shut the gas (for some good reason) on Yom Tov” – please see page 12-438 of the 2004 Pesach guie. He also says for an oven with a gas pilot: “when the flame is on, one may adjust the flame on Yom Tov as deemed necessary.”

    Isn’t the park road looping around Central Park that is closed to cars good for that?

    FYI there may be ways for truth to prevail if the claim was a lie.

    In a different but related context, I learned from Rav Reuven Weiner of Kollel Iyun Hadaf —

    If a person, after admitting, claims he made a mistake and wants to retract his Hoda’ah see Choshen Mishpat 81:23. The Rema and the Shach differ about when the retraction is effective.
