If Moshiach comes on Shabbos, will the laws of muktza still apply? Should we take our tambourines?


There are seemingly conflicting indications in the sichos about this matter.

Some sichos imply that when Moshiach comes it will be okay to play instruments on Shabbos and Yom tov.


Here is what we wrote in the Badatz Luach for the first day of Sukkos:

Law of Redemption: The simchas beis ha’sho’eivah in the Beis Hamikdash would not take place on the first night of Sukkos because the musical instruments required for its celebration may not be played during Yom Tov by Rabbinic decree.

However, the Rebbe explains* that these restrictions will no longer be relevant in the era of the true and complete Redemption. Therefore, the sim’chas beis ha’sho’eivah will indeed begin on the first night of Sukkos.

*Sichas Erev Chag Ha’Sukkos 5752.

ועד”ז בשיחת ש”פ האזינו (התוועדות הב’) תנש”א (גם לגבי זמן בית ראשון). שיחת שמחת בית השואבה תשט”ו (בזמן בית ראשון). ולהעיר מהשקו”ט עד”ז בנוגע לתקיעת שופר לעת”ל בר”ה שחל להיות בשבת. ואכ”מ.
