Vestos – Onas Or Zarua


I keep Or Zarua of course – but wonder whether it applies for ‘all’ vestos.

We have several at the moment including a haflaga kavua of 26 but also a haflaga of 28.

Question: Do we need to keep the Or Zarua for the additional haflaga sheyno kavua


The chumra of the Or Zarua is applied to a וסת שאינו קובע as well, so the 28 which is an אינו קבוע would also have the chumra of Or Zarua.

See Shu”t Chasam Sofer Y:D 179
