39 Melachot Project -

#32 - Koteiv - Writing

Writing is defined biblically by making permanent meaningful markings, including symbols, pictures and letters. If gibberish, writing two letters is the minimum to violate biblically; however, rabbinically any writing (even temporary) is prohibited.

Modern Application: Using letters or words that are premade and not permanently put together are permitted to use, such as the shul's page number indicator and scrabble pieces. However, if they click into place that would be problematic, such as the game upwords. Writing onto food is a problem, as well as making a symbol or drawing. One may walk in the snow or mud even if your boots might leave a copy of the company name in the footprint.

Eruv is up this Shabbat!
