Place Mat

Question:

Do I need a place mat when eating fleishig food (hot or cold) on a milchig table, if no one else is eating at the table?

 

Answer:

Hello,

If you are placing the fleishig on the milchig table itself, then yes you need a tablecloth, as the residue, grease, etc, form the milchig and fleishig might mix. However if you are eating on a plate, then it isn’t an obligation, however the minhag is still to use a tablecloth.

Best wishes
