Is there a concept of shvus dishvus with an added shvus making it a rabbinic prohibition 3 times removed. For example if it's yom tov sheini, and the action is rabbinic such as Nolad (turning on a flame on yom tov is prohibited from Nolad), and doing it with a Shinui. Does this make it permissible because it's so far removed?

    In the case you bring as an example - of Yom Tov Sheini - it's not a "triple Shvus" as Yom Tov Sheini is not a Shvus. Yom Tov Sheini is - in some ways - more serious than the first day of Yom Tov, with Chazal saying some nasty things about people who don't treat it as a real Yom Tov. – Danny Schoemann May 20 '14 at 7:48
  • @Shokhet the qeustion has nothing to do with shinuyim... – Double AA Dec 17 '14 at 3:16
  • @DoubleAA I thought David was asking a question about doing a shvus dishvus by way of shinuy. If he wasn't, feel free to remove the tag. David, what were you asking? – MTL Dec 17 '14 at 17:56
  • @Shokhet It sounds like he's asking about a "shvus dishvus with an added shvus". Your case is potentially an example of that category. – Double AA Dec 17 '14 at 17:57
  • I hear what you're saying, @DoubleAA. If you feel the tag doesn't apply, remove it, by all means. – MTL Dec 17 '14 at 18:03
