Don't Touch !
Did you know ? (149)
The Rema (O.Ch.612:10) writes,
"When feeding children on Yom Kippur
one may touch the food."
The Taz explains the reason is
because of אימת הדין (fear of Yom Kippur)
we are not worried one might come to eat
the food in his hand.
The Pri Megodim* assumes this Heter
applies only on Yom Kippur. The other
four fast days (no אימת הדין) one shouldn't
The M.Verurah (sk32) by quoting both
reasons why it's different than Chometz,
might argue on the Pri Megodim and hold you
may touch the food even on the four fasts.
