Tiferet Yisrael (Boaz) on Avot 3:14 cited and translated here.


from Dose of Halacha: The Shulchan Aruch (YD 117:1) writes that one mustn’t do business with any food which is forbidden to eat mideoraisa. The Rema and Beis Yosef (YD 117) write that one mustn’t, therefore, buy such food for one’s non-Jewish workers as one stands to benefit from giving such gifts (See Kaf Hachaim YD 117:28). The Taz (YD 117:2), ...


To avoid repetition I will address only the relative prohibition of Jews and non-Jews, not the nature of the prohibition of non-Jews discussed fairly extensively in the linked page. At face value the prohibition of a Jewish nidda indeed seems much more severe. However, R. Yaakov Kamenetzky famously held that it was preferable to maintain a relationship ...


I think the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch answers your question in the following paragraphs. The paragraph you quote says: סעיף י"ד: כָּל דָּבָר שֶׁהַיִשְֹרָאֵל אָסוּר לַעֲשׂוֹתוֹ, אָסוּר לוֹמַר לְאֵינוֹ יְהוּדִי לַעֲשׂוֹתוֹ, דַּאֲמִירָה לְאֵינוֹ יְהוּדִי הֲוֵי שְׁבוּת. וַאֲפִלּוּ לִרְמוֹז לוֹ לַעֲשׂוֹתוֹ, אָסוּר. וַאֲפִלּוּ לוֹמַר לוֹ קֹדֶם שַׁבָּת ...


I am not sure if Havarka meant this and if he did then I'll remove my answer, but I think there is a simple way to solve this. There is a Mitzvah Min Hatorah to bury a Meis Mitzvah which only applies to a dead Jew ( Rambam - Mitzvah 231). There is no Mitzvah to bury a non jew. (I believe there is a Mitzvah Midrabbanan to bury a non jew out of Darcei Sholom ...


Jews who are impure from a corpse and non-Jews can enter the same parts of the Temple Mount. (Rambam Biat Mikdash 3:5) In the Temple times a non-Jew would be killed for entering prohibited parts of the complex. At least, that's what the sign there said.


The Kitzur Shulchan Aruch (סימן צ - דין עשית חפציו בלא מלאכה ומלאכה על ידי גוי) says that one may not let a non-Jew do any work that one may not do oneself. It's irrelevant of he's being paid or not. In case of a serious monetary loss, one may hint that the work should be done, but one may not discuss payment. One may make it understood that one who does ...
