Introduction to Hatmana

In the previous sections the laws relevant to leaving food on a flame from before Shabbos and placing it there on Shabbos were discussed. In the following chapter the laws of insulating a food before Shabbos and on Shabbos will be discussed.  Here too the Sages gave certain restrictions as to how one is allowed to insulate from before Shabbos, and on Shabbos.

The summary for both chapters has been printed at the end of Chapter 2.



  • Hatmana Shemosif Hevel: Insulation which adds heat.
  • Hatmana Sheiyno Mosif Hevel: Insulation that does not add heat.
