  1. According to Sephardim, a Yireh Shamayim should be strict to refrain from Melacha until 72 minutes after sunset like Rabbenu Tam.[1] These 72 minutes are proportional to the length of the day, and do not depend on current location.[2]
  2. According to Sephardim, it is permitted for someone who keeps Rabbenu Tam time to ask someone who doesn't keep Rabbenu Tam time to do Melacha for him.[3]


  1. Yalkut Yosef 293:3
  2. Zmanim KHalacha, page 43, quoting Hacham Ovadia zt"l. Hence, 72 minutes would be 1.2 multiplied by the day's shaa zmanit.
  3. Yalkut Yosef 293:11
