@DoubleAA, there is also the Dirabbanan issur of Negia derech chiba of a Panuyah, even if she is not a nidda.

Another good source on this is Rabbi Simcha Bunim Cohen's "The Laws of Yom Tov"

The English version or the Lashon HaKodesh version? The reason he discusses it is because it is very common between two days of YomTov because people don't perceive them as two days.

comment Early maariv on 2nd day Yom Tov
The logic is that Melacha which is permitted on YomTov is Hutra, meaning the prohibition was never effectuated. (This is the Ran's approach). Being that this is the case, only if the intention of the person is for the next day would this action now be prohibited. But you cannot say that the intention is for the next day, as it is a safek what that next second is (or for that matter what the last second was). Therefore if his intention is for immediate benefit it should be allowed. He only was willing to apply this to Dirabbanans out of deference to greater earlier authorities.

Your are logically correct. Rav Shlomo Zalman said a novel (and imho excellent) sevara to allow even Di'Oraisas in Bein Hashemashos on Yomtov as long as they are Tzoech Ochel/Shaveh Lichol Nefesh/Mitoch (feeling compelled to explain why there is no mention in the poskim of such an obvious problem) but since R' Akiva Eiger and others explicitly paskened that DiOraisa is not allowed, because of Chashash issur DiOraisa, therefore he deferred to them. But on Dirabbanans, safek Dirabbanan likulah in this instance since he does have a great sevara to permit it. more-->

comment Issurei arayos worse than rape
let me get this straight: You are maintaining that consensual relations with an erva relative does not get such strict treatment?

comment Early maariv on 2nd day Yom Tov
@DoubleAA,carrying in a Karmelis is a Dirabbanan to begin with. Rav Shlomo Zalman was meikil regarding this issue because of the fact that although logic dictates that melacha should be completely forbidden during this period, since it is not mentioned explicitly in the Poskim, if one would benefit from it during bein Hashmashos, then the dirabbanan can be done then. I fail to understand your comparison to Friday night. Elaborate please

The fact that many people wheel their carriages along Ocean Parkway during Bein Hashemashos on Yomtov is merely a Re'aiya that Amaratzus is prevalent amongst us.

@DoubleAA, pardon me. I just checked my notes: For a Dirabanan, if the benefit will be, or could very well be during bein hashemashos, then carrying in a Karmelis is permitted. However carrying in a Reshus Harrabim MiDiOraisa during bein Hashemashos is forbidden.

@DoubleAA, have you ever lived in a place where there is no Eruv?

@DoubleAA Good point. To avoid the issur of contact with a Niddah.

@DoubleAA the discussion is not about a Chumra. This is plain Halacha. Even if you have never heard about it.

comment Early maariv on 2nd day Yom Tov
@DoubleAA The problem is worse than Hachana. Melacha on Yomtov for another time is forbidden from Torah law. Each moment may be the next day from the last moment. Anything which would normally be a permitted melacha for tzorech ochel is forbidden in this time since there is a safek di'oreisa.

So if it's a relative it is not as horrendous of a crime?! How does that follow?

comment Early maariv on 2nd day Yom Tov
@DoubleAA Absolutely correct. It is mefurash in poskim that every moment of Bein HaShemashos is a safek from one to the next. Perhaps the first second is the first day and the next second is the second day.

comment Al Hannisim for Yom Ha'atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim
It was probably a lot shorter than ours but with the same essential berachos. See hakirah.org/Vol14Zelcer.pdf and also see hakirah.org/Vol%2012%20FrimerA.pdf for one critique of one analysis regarding changes in the liturgy in general nowadays.
