May one read a newspaper that was delivered on Shabbos or purchased by a non-Jew when you are certain there no issue of techum?

Answer:

The question will depend on whether there is an eruv in the area, for if there is no eruv the non-Jew will be doing a melachah in delivering the newspaper, and this will also be a problem.

Please see here for a more detailed response. The sources discuss the question of reading the newspaper on Shabbos.

Best wishes.

  1. There is an eruv locally but not that runs all the way to the plant. But what about a case where a shul worker bought it for himself – would that be ok?

    • Yes, that would be fine.
