Electrical devices on Shabbat

Rabbi Yoel Lieberman

Elul 26, 5773
Question
Is it possible to use electrical devices on Shabbat for health?
Answer
The use of electrical devices for saving one's life in a life threatening situation is permitted. The Torah commands us to desecrate one Shabbat to save one's life in order that this person keep many Shabbatot. Any other health situation, a Rabbi must be consulted with specific details for each case to judge how severe things are medically , what medical alternatives exist and so on. Shanna tova
