Can I turn a light switch off on Shabbat?

Question:

Can I turn a light switch off on Shabbat?

 

Answer:

We are not allowed to turn off a light on Shabbos. The reason for this is because, we don’t extinguish a flame on Shabbos. Even if the light is not an incandescent bulb, nevertheless turning the light off will be breaking the electric circuit, which is also problematic.

Best wishes
