Halocho #1729 - You eat meat, I'll eat milk

Two acquaintances are not allowed to share the same table, if one is eating a meat meal and the other is eating a milky meal.

This applies to friends, family and even to casual acquaintances who wouldn't feel comfortable sharing their food.

If there is some sort of separation on the table, then they are allowed to share the table. For example, if they each have their own place mat, or there is something between them on the table that normally is not on the table, like food (bottle of whiskey) or vessels (vase or extra salt cellars).

They should not share the same cup, pitcher or bottle, since food can get stuck on it and passed from one to the other.

They also should not be sharing the same loaf of bread. The custom is that they do not even share the same salt cellars.

שְׁנֵי יִשְׂרְאֵלִים הַמַּכִּירִים זֶה אֶת זֶה, אֲפִלּוּ הֵם מַקְפִּידִים זֶה עַל זֶה, אָסוּר לָהֶם לֶאֱכֹל עַל שֻׁלְחָן אֶחָד זֶה בָּשָׂר וְזֶה מַאֲכַל חָלָב, עַד שֶׁיַּעֲשׂוּ אֵיזֶה הֶכֵּר, כְּגוֹן, שֶׁיֹּאכַל כָּל אֶחָד עַל מַפָּה שֶׁלּוֹ, אוֹ שֶׁיַּנִּיחוּ עַל הַשֻּׁלְחָן בֵּין הַמַּאֲכָלִים אֵיזֶה דָּבָר שֶׁאֵין דַּרְכּוֹ לִהְיוֹת שָׁם. וְיִהְיוּ זְהִירִים שֶׁלֹּא לִשְׁתּוֹת מִכְּלִי אֶחָד, מִפְּנֵי שֶׁהַמַּאֲכָל נִדְבָּק בַּכֶּלִי

וְכָל שֶׁכֵּן שֶׁצְּרִיכִין לִזָּהֵר שֶׁלֹּא לֶאֱכוֹל מִכִּכָּר אֶחָד עִם בָּשָׂר וְעִם חָלָב. וְכֵן נוֹהֲגִין לְיַחֵד כֵּלִים לְמֶלַח, אֶחָד לְמַאַכְלֵי בָּשָׂר וְאֶחָד לְמַאַכְלֵי חָלָב, כִּי לִפְעָמִים טוֹבְלִים בְּמֶלַח וְנִשְׁאָרִים שְׁיוּרֵי מַאֲכָל בַּמֶּלַח
