From the Rav’s Desk: Oiling squeaky hinges on Shabbos

  1. Question: [Sunday 2nd Menachem Av 5781]

The hinges of the door of the shul are making a very squeaky noise which is quite annoying and disturbing people who are Davening. May I pour oil onto the hinges on Shabbos in order to get rid of the squeaky?



It is forbidden for you to do so due to the prohibition of Tikkun Keli
