If it is serving a decorative function, it's not a problem. (See Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 303 and 310 and Shemirath Shabbath K'Hilkhatha 18:12. Hypothetically, if there's a chance the one wearing it is likely to take it out in reshuth harabim, then there could be a reason to forbid it. See Orach Chaim 303:18. Also, if the hat has a stiff brim that is more ...

Even in a real public domain one can carry things within 4 Amot. (ShA OC 349) So he was allowed to pick it up and put it on. Then he's wearing it and can continue walking. (Though he might not have been allowed to wear it without enough clips to begin with...)

Kitzur Shlchan Aruch The Kitzur Shlchan Aruch in סימן פב - אסור העברה והוצאה מרשות לרשות explicitly forbids it. It's irrelevant if the child can already walk or not. סעיף י': הָאִשָּׁה מְדַדָּה אֶת בְּנָהּ אֲפִלּוּ בִּרְשׁוּת הָרַבִּים, וּבִלְבַד שֶׁלֹּא תִּגְרְרֵהוּ, אֶלָּא יְהֵא מַגְבִּיהַּ רַגְלוֹ הָאַחַת וְיַנִּיחַ הַשְּׁנִיָּה עַל הָאָרֶץ ...

Shemirat Shabbat Kehilchata (16:18, cf. footnotes 69, 82) notes that the practice is to be lenient and cites the following from Orchot Chayim (Shabbat 261) to try and justify the practice, though in closing with a reference to the Beiur Halacha (303:18 sv. Ki) he indicates how weak he believes the justification is. וכן האשה לא תצא בדבר שהוא חוצץ בפני ...

I found in the Rivevos Ephraim 4:97:20 this question. Rav Ephraim Greenblatt asked Rav Nochum Kornmehl (Tiferes Tzvi) this question and Rav Greenblatt put it in his sefer: He answered that one should sew the feather to the hat because one might take the feather out since sometimes one will go out without the feather. Rav Yisrael Taplin goes through some ...

Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchatah (3rd edition (5770), 18:25) permits (for those who are generally lenient about carrying jewelry) a man to wear a "handkerchief exclusively designated for adornment in the upper pocket" (my translation) in a public domain. Sounds like your case.

Firstly, as Clint Eastwood already touched upon, it is not at all clear that the waste one flushes will go to either a reshus harabbim (public domain) or a karmalis, at least without requiring others to act further down the treatment process: from ...

Regarding the first part of the question, Qitzur Shulhhan Arukh, Yalqut Yosef (Orahh Hayim 301:54) states (my translation): מותר לצאת בשבת לרשות הרבים עם סיכת ראש שנועדה להתפיס את הכיפה לראש, ואין לחוש בזה לאיסור הוצאה בשבת. It is permitted to travel between domains on Shabbat with a hair clip which is designed to secure the kippah on one's head and ...

from http://doseofhalacha.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/a-key-issue.html The Shemiras Shabbos Kehilchasa (18) writes that if the front door opens onto the street, one must open the door while still ’wearing the key’. R’ Yitzchak Yaakov Weiss held that if the keyhole doesn’t go all the way through to the other side of the door, one hasn’t placed the key into a ...

Flushing a toilet is definitely not carrying because the network of sewage pipes under the city is a reshut hayachid. As to the outlet pipe, there is some delay and disconnect between the flush of your toilet and waste coming out the other end. You will contribute to the flow, but the stuff you flush only pushes out the stuff that flows out, so this action ...

I've seen a bunch of people bring umbrellas to shul on Shabbat and leave them open during in the coat room during service. I know you're not supposed to open an umbrella on shabbat but there's a different rule for carrying an already open umbrella. If you open the umbrella before shabbat it's permissible in an erev. The torahmusings link suggests that you ...

Shepherds do not merely carry sacks, they use sacks as clothing/adornments by using them as raincoats, as Rashi indicates (see ד"ה בשקין and אלא). Women do not wear signet rings as clothing/adornments, period. R. Yirmiah is simply observing that when women occasionally carry signet rings, they do so by wearing them on their fingers. Therefore, while signet ...

My rabbi told me that I should carry candy with me everywhere I go on Shabbos, out of concern for hypoglycemia, which is a life-threatening condition. Hypoglycemia (also called "low blood sugar," or just a "low") is a function of type 1 diabetes. A low can come almost without warning, even with the best control (trust me, I know). If I'm going long-distance, ...

Rashi explains that the question is based on the understanding that פורפת means she may wrap it on Shabbos, for if the Mishna would merely be telling us here that she may go out with what was already wrapped we've already seen that in the Reisha where it says in general Medians may go out with the button. The Gemara assumes that בלבד is a condition on what ...

I think the distinction is how and when the item is functioning. The shepherd's sackcloth raincoat is functioning as a garment when worn over the body (e.g. by protecting from the rain). For a woman, a signet ring has no aesthetic value when worn and wearing it is just a way to get it from point A to point B.

I've seen and done many shinuyim in my time. The easiest that I could think of, if you're the black hat type (or heavily involved in Winterbash ;-), is to put something under your hat. There's usually plenty of room in there. Another shinuy could be to put something in your sock, though if you'll be walking for a while, expect blisters on your ankle ...

Being in this exact scenario, I asked my Rav this same question about two years ago. His answer was that, since my friend relied upon our 'eiruv, his carrying from reshut to reshut on Shabbat on my behalf is permissible. He added that, just because I hold that our 'eiruv should not be relied upon, does not forbid his carrying on my behalf - because according ...
