# 3059 A Gift on Time


Q. Shalom Rav, Purim this year will be a rush no doubt.
Would it be OK to put A shaloch manos by someone’s door after Shabbos already comes in, right? [If the items are not muksa and can be used/eaten on Shabbos? ]
Can we drop off a bunch? Do we have to have a specific machshava (intention)?I was thinking after bentch lechting to go for a little walk to some neighbours I may not have gotten to…..Thank you so much for the forum. A Freilchen Pirim!
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that if the time one delivers the Shalach Manos is after light candling, since they cannot be eaten then any more until after the receiving family davens Maariv and the husband comes home and recites Kiddush, even if ithere is an Eiruv and one is permitted to deliver them, still one does not comply anymore with the mitzva of Shalach Manos. There may be also other issues in delivering gifts during Shabbos. See question 1069.
Rabbi A, Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit”a
