Vitamin/Energy Patch on Fast Day

March 8, 2019 | by Rabbi Pinchas Waldman

Are you allowed to use an energy or vitamin patch on a fast day?

The Aish Rabbi Replies

Since applying a patch is not considered eating, it is permitted on minor fast days. However, it should preferably not be done on Tisha B’av and Yom Kippur.
