Amira lakum


Non-Jew asks to borrow a book from a Jew. The Jew fumbles around in a dark room looking for the book, and the non Jew turns on the light.

The non-Jew did the melacha for the Jew, but really he did it for himself so that the Jew can find the book faster.


It would seem that the gentile is actualy doing it for his own benefit, therefore it is permitted.

Best wishes
