Tevet 27, 5773
Question
Medical - Dialysis My friend has to undergo dialysis every Monday,Wednesday and Friday. What is the procedure if a "chag" falls on one of these days? What happens if the day is Yom Kippur? Thanks, Chayim
Answer
First, we wish Refuah Shlema and and hope these questions will remain theoretical. If the machine has no incandescent light bulbs, there's no Torah prohibition, and the use is permitted on Sabbath or Chag for a Dialysis patient. Rabbi Dov Lior
