In the gemara it seems to sometimes refer to someone as a Chaver in a halachik sense and other times in a sense of meaning just a friend. What is the difference and how would one delineate between the two? Are there sources in the Talmud that explain the difference?

  • Thanks but that doesn't really help. There are limited references and I need something concrete for the research! Thanks again! – The Thinking Yid Apr 13 '20 at 1:04

    Can you bring examples in the Gemara where Chaver isn't used in the Halakhic sense (especially where it's not obvious from the context what is meant)? – Tamir Evan Apr 13 '20 at 6:02
