On Lail Shabbat (Fri. night) Someone attends a shul that is some distance away from his home. The way home has no street lighting or other form of lighting (e.g. no full moon and few houses).
There is no eruv on his way home, and he has put on the headlamp before Shabbat began. Can he wear this handlamp to light his way home?
- Is the headlamp considered muktzah?
- Is wearing the headlamp similar to wearing jewelry, which is permitted on Shabbat? I.e. is he violating the rule of carrying?
- Other problems / violations not mentioned
Please do not factor the notion that he should stay home and not go to shul, altogether. Assume that he was a guest who went to shul and didn't know how dark it was on the road and there happened to be a lit headlamp available for him to use.
