After Shabbos But Before Havdalah


Dear Rabbi,

After Shabbos and before Havdola, what kind of work is one allowed to do?





  1. If the words “Baruch Hamavdil Ben Kodesh L’Chol” have not been said, no work may be done that involves anything that would be forbidden to do on Shabbos. According to most authorities, it is actually better to avoid doing anything that is weekday related until Havdalah has been recited. If, however, “Baruch Hamavdil Ben Kodesh L’Chol” was said, it is permissible to do any of the actions that are normally forbidden to do on Shabbos.
