Shabbat

Shabbat

11.01.19

Question

1. Can I use my phone for studying the Torah while i'm in shabbat?

2. Can I study a language(hebrew, Japanese or any) on shabbat?

Answer

To the Questioner, 

1. You cannot.

2. If it has a purpose for you on Shabbat itself, for example, you enjoy the studies itself and you take pleasure in them - you may; 
If it has only a purpose for you after Shabbat, for example, studying for a test - you may not. 

With blessings,
