Therapy on Shabbos

I live in NYC and we are entitled to receive hours of free therapy in social skills for our 3 year old daughter.

Are we aloud to have a non Jewish therapist come to our home to work with our daughter on Shabbos?


As long as the therapy itself does not include any Shabbos prohibitions, this would be permitted.

  1. Is this in the spirit of Shabbos, to have a goy come into the house, ring the doorbell, maybe talk on his phone etc.? Won’t he make you sign something to confirm that he came?

    1. one may certainly not sign any confirmation
      this seems to be within the Shabbos spirit,
      small things he does for himself have no baring on you or your household
