Is one allowed to study on Shabbos for a test?

 

Can I study on Shabbos for a test on Limudei Kodesh subjects?

Allowed.

ראה שש”כ פרק כח סעיף צב ובהערה רכ, ושם הערה קעח.

וכן נפסק בלוח יומי – פורים תשע”ד לענין הכנת קריאת מגילה בשבת.

 

Can I study on Shabbos for an accounting test?

No.

Explanation: There are two issues here:

  1. One is reading such material on Shabbos. It is permissible to read books of wisdom on Shabbos according to the strict letter of the law but a G-d-fearing person should be stringent. However, since accounting is forbidden on Shabbos, this would not be considered studying wisdom.
  2. An additional issue is hachanah, preparation for after Shabbos.

My therapist recommended I read some books, however I don’t really have the time to read them during the week. Am I allowed to read them on Shabbos?

הכנה: ראה מקו״ח תקג. מנחת שבת צ, ט. שש״כ כח הע׳ קסט. שם רו. נשמ״א או״ח שז. וביום השבת ל, ד. וישמע משה ע׳ קו.
