To put it quick: There are 3 issurim which come into play with someone doing Melocha for you: Amira - speaking, or instructing to do melocha; Benefeting - deriving from melocha which was done for you; Shliach - that is having melocha done for you (even if you don't benefit, or instructed anyone). So in order to avoid transgression one has to make sure ...

Signing one's name with ink is generally a biblical prohibition which is only waived in cases of safek pikuach nefashoth (risk of loss of life). Where it does not at all increase this risk, a shinui (abnormal implementation) is employed to avoid the biblical prohibition. However, signing with even a halachically valid shinui ("abnormal" has to be legally ...

In short if it is forbidden for you, for the gentile to do it for you, it is forbidden even if he volunteered (if he did it for a Jew). A few laws on this subject in the order they were codified Introduction The prohibition for having a gentile do a forbidden work for a Jew on shabos is Rabbinic (this was from shulchan ariuch harav 306.5) and the Rabbi's ...

On Rosh Hashana, we recite Avinu Malekenu. However, some authorities maintain that one should omit the verse chatanu l'fanecha because it is like a viduy. The majority of the poskim hold that one may recite the verse as it is meant as a supplication, not a confession. However, they caution that one should not strike his chest as usual, lest it seem like a ...

Regarding Shabbat: In the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch סימן סח - דין תפלת הדרך ושאר דברים שצריכין לזהר בדרך it says: סעיף י"ב: מִי שֶׁהוּא בְּיוֹם שַׁבָּת קֹדֶשׁ בַּדֶּרֶךְ בַּמָּלוֹן וְיֵשׁ לוֹ מָעוֹת, אִם יָכוֹל לְהַפְקִידָן אוֹ לְהַצְנִיעָן, אָסוּר לְהַחֲזִיקָן בְּכִיסוֹ, שֶׁהֲרֵי הֵם מֻקְצֶה. וְאִם מִתְיָרֵא שֶׁמָּא יִגְנְבוּן מִמֶּנּוּ, יִתְפְּרֵן ...

Har Tz'vi (Yore Dea 144) says it's forbidden (by Divine, not rabbinic, decree) as a part of the prohibition on removing hair on Shabas. (He notes that use of a chemical is one of the standard ways of removing hair, so this doesn't count as a case of kil'achar yad that would remove it from the Divine prohibition.) Sh'miras Shabas K'hilchasah 14:41 cites this ...

For what it's worth, it seems that those who daven Mincha late on Erev Shabbos don't strike the chest when saying Slach Lanu. This is printed in the Bobover Siddur, Siddur Harav.

With candles, their's a large variety of customs, so this is only a partial answer. Until marriage, girls light one candle. http://m.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/1221742/jewish/Do-Young-Girls-Light-Shabbat-and-Holiday-Candles.htm This is from the lubavitcher Rebbe. Unfortunately, I can't find the exact source of the article, but I heard the ...

The Artscroll Yitzchak Yair siddur (the all-Hebrew Ashkenaz one) states that if 28 Elul is a weekday, tachanun is said even by Mincha, and on Shabbat, tzikatcha is said. You are correct that normally, if tachanun is not said by Shacharit, it is omitted the previous afternoon as well. However, Erev Rosh Hashanah and Erev Yom Kippur (and perhaps Pesach Sheni) ...

The following summary would seem to imply that your particular case would not require you to continue to "give mussar" to your sibling. I bolded the sections that would seem to apply. This is based on the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 29:16 which I copy in after the summary. As always CYLOR to see what the best thing to do would be. Mitzvah of Rebuke Someone ...

I am extracting several answers from this article that may be relevant: May one use a ponytail holder to make a ponytail in her hair on Shabbat? Making a ponytail and using a ponytail holder is permitted on Shabbat, as this is unlikely to cause the removal of hair (Yalkut Yosef, 303:15). So, in general, you can make a ponytail. However, ...

Zadon Shabbos, knowing that it's Shabbos, does not mean that he knows every aspect of Shabbos. It means he knows that it's Shabbos. As Rashi heichi mashkachas lah says, that he knows it's Shabbos. The only thing is that too know it's Shabbos, you need to know at least one biblical law, or else in what way do you know it's Shabbos? We see later in the gemara, ...

Maseches Shabbos 117 amud beis: We learn it from the verseויאמר משה : אכלוהו היום כי שבת היום לה', היום לא תמצאוהו בשדה This verse, said regarding the man (manna), speaking about Shabbos, says the word Hayom 3 times (the man was their meals in those days), so the גמרא says that we learn it from there. This is the verse you were referring to in your question. ...

Some opinions prohibit biking on the grounds that the bike might break and the rider be tempted to fix it and some on the grounds that it might create furrows in the ground which would be plowing (though only a rabbinic prohibition, if you don't intend it or benefit from it). Others hold that biking is prohibited as a mundane activity or that, as something ...

Halachipedia citing O.C. 317:5, and other sources, says: A bow-knot, slipknot, or a single-knot isn’t a true Kesher-bind and is permissible even if it does remain in place for a while. [21] For example: a ribbon on a gift, a single bind on a shopping bag or garbage liner. It is permitted to tie a slip knot or bow without a underlying knot even ...

When my children were very young, we would eat dinner early (5 or 6) and let them stay up for kiddush after shul. Since it is earlier than the earliest candle lighting, there is no problem with eating. Since it is earlier than the earliest candle lighting time, we could not accept shabbos, and would thus be able to eat, since the meal will not run into the ...

No. Source: see bottom of the page of the image attached. On Shabbos we don't say tachanun http://i.stack.imgur.com/pCDCz.jpg Edit: This is Siddur Tehillat Hashem

First, some context: Unfortunately, the question of whether or not it is permissible according to the halakha to swim on Shabath has become yet another marker of one's neighbor's frumkeit and subsequently their commitment to sh'mirath ha-misswoth. Like so many other humroth that have been contrived in the name of "custom," this too has become a source of ...
