Hello, May one wear a winding watch on Shabbat? Also: may one apply baby powder on Shabbat? Thanks.

  1. Dear Zev,

    Yes, one may wear a winding watch on Shabbat, providing that it is working.

    It is forbidden, in general, to wind such a watch on Shabbat.

    It is permitted to apply baby powder on a baby on Shabbat.

    I hope this was helpful.

    Best wishes,

    Rabbi Moshe Newman
