Mazel Tov to Shoshana Elias on the birth of a granddaughter born to Tehilla and Shlomie Lazar
 
Shayla Section: Soap Suds on Shabbat? I was asked if it is ok to use the liquid soaps that form a foamy discharge when pressed.  The concern here is that one is creating something new on Shabbat - which violates a rabbinic category called Nolad - which means something that is created on Shabbat anew.  However many poskim (rabbinic decisors) believe that anything that is considered impermanent is not called Noald and in fact if one were concerned about foam - one could not pour beer on Shabbat either!! (Heaven forfend).   There are those who are concerned about liquid soaps as well because of a concern about Mimacheik - smoothing of the liquid soap.  Most poskim are not concerned about this issue either.  One more issue is in regards to liquid soap is mimarayach- smearing, and therefore some rabbis feel that our thick liquid soaps should be diluted with water to make them thinner and ok for use on Shabbat.  While there are valid reasons to be concerned about foam soaps and some liquid soaps on Shabbat, I would say that one can be lenient in both cases and use them on Shabbat.  Bar Soap should not be used on Shabbat however.
