In many shuls, this is nothing more than a space constraint, esp. if the Shabbat davening is in a chapel during weekdays and a bigger shul on Shabbat. Usually, the chapel has a small ark, so there just isn't room to store it with the crown, esp. if the small ark has just enough space for 1 or 2 Sifrei Torah. My shul is exactly like this. We pray in the ...

As Double AA said, it might just be the time when the donor's there. My guess, however, would be for Kavod Shabbos. If you had the crown on all the time, it wouldn't be special when you saw it on Shabbos. But that leads to the question of why not put it on during Shabbos Minchah? I'd guess that this is because at Shabbos Minchah time, the Kedushah of ...

So I have found a simple answer: There is a concept in halacha that "אין שליחות לדבר עבירה" because everyone is responsible to keep mitzvoth in their own right. Therefore if someone acts on his own you are not responsible. If however that person is not knowledgeable and is not familiar with halacha you could be over on "lifnei iver lo titain michshol" ...

See in Sefer Nishmat Avraham, book 1, page 104-105 (about Hilchot Shabbat 245). A question is reported in name of Rav Moshe Feinstein (Igrot Moshe Orach Chayim, part 4, siman 79). In a Hospital ward, physician need to work on Shabbat. A jewish doctor can keep the the duty for Sunday, even if he know that the Shabbat will be for an other Jew, also Shomer ...

YHWH says in Exodus 20:10: Remember the Sabbath day to sanctify it. Six days may you work and perform all your labor, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord, your God; you shall perform no labor, neither you, your son, your daughter, your manservant, your maidservant, your beast, nor your stranger who is in your cities. the Hebrew word, ...

In general it seems like the question you are really asking is whether or not one creates a new vessel by opening a can (which would therefore make it prohibited). The answer is, if you are Ashkenazi, then a lot of poskim consider it forbidden as they view it as creating a new vessel, this is the opinion of Rav Shlomo Zalman. However, many Sephardic poskim ...

From Halachipedia: It is forbidden to pick mushrooms or remove moss from a rock it is growing on (39 Melachos (Rabbi Ribiat, vol 2, pg 283), Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchata 26:10). For an even earlier source, see also the Babylonian Talmud (Shabbath 107b-108a) which extends the prohibition in the case of fungi to places where harvesting plants would not ...

We need to define what can be the problems. To use a special utensil, to create an utensil. See Mishna Shabbat 22, 3: שׁוֹבֵר אָדָם אֶת הֶחָבִית לֶאֱכֹל הֵימֶנָּה גְרוֹגָרוֹת, וּבִלְבַד שֶׁלֹּא יִתְכַּוֵּן לַעֲשׂוֹת כְּלִי. ‏ We can breaking a barrel to eat dried figs. וְאֵין נוֹקְבִים מְגוּפָה שֶׁל חָבִית, דִּבְרֵי רַבִּי יְהוּדָה. ...

"Isn't the case that you have honored the shabat with something else than meat?!" as if he say You know that you has successfully / I want to tell you that you has successfully ... He do not ruled that there is no need for meat. In this case, the Shabbat was without meat because of lack of meat at this time. The reproach is about spending many hours for buy ...

With all due respect, I think you've misunderstood Rashbam's commentary on this verse. He is not delineating when a day starts or ends, but indicating how six days passed. He maintains (1:4) that the first day of creation started in the morning; if so, how do we have six days of creation?[1] He answers that even though we don't have six exact calendar days, ...

Rashbam never decide Halacha following his Perush on Chumash. He was one of the greatest "Maatike Hashmua", see his fantastic work on Gemara in Baba Batra and Arve Pesachim.

Your question seems to indicate that you believe that because things with Noach and the Flood happened in Sevens, that therefore Noach was observing the Shabbat. I'm not sure I see the connection. However, to address parts of your question: The Chinuch (Mitzvah 330 - Positive Commmandment to count the years until Yovel) (sorry I don't have an english link) ...

From Halachipedia The Mishna Shabbat 148b writes that one may not count the number of guests from a list on Shabbat. Abaye in the Gemara 149a explains that this is a rabbinic restriction so as not to come to read a Shtar Hedyot on Shabbat. What is a Shtar Hedyot which one may not read on Shabbat? Rashi 116b s.v. Shtar explains it to be financial ...

This is disputed. Shulchan Arukh, Orach Chayyim 307:17: אָסוּר לִלְמֹד בְּשַׁבָּת וְיוֹם טוֹב, זוּלַת בְּדִבְרֵי תּוֹרָה; וַאֲפִלּוּ בְּסִפְרֵי חָכְמוֹת אָסוּר; וְיֵשׁ מִי שֶׁמַּתִּיר, וְעַל פִּי סְבָרָתוֹ מֻתָּר לְהַבִּיט באצטרלו''ב בְּשַׁבָּת, וּלְהָפְכָהּ וּלְטַלְטְלָהּ כְּדִלְקַמָּן סי' ש''ח. My loose translation: One should not learn ...
