It is well known that the briskers are worried to wear tzitzis on shabbas where there is no eruv because of the opinion of Rebbi (Baal Hamaor). Did Rav Yosha Ber Soloveitchik follow this opinion, or he wore tzitzis on shabbas?

    I would imagine an eruv wouldn’t change much either. Briskers tend not to rely on city-wide eruvin...

    @sam While I didn't downvote, I would imagine that it seems from your question that you did not put in much effort. As an example, you mentioned something "well-known" without providing any source, for it (nor did you explain it in detail). While in general I appreciate historical questions, I can see how some might feel like this is not really important or useful information. Additionally, it was written in a way that seemed a bit rushed (perhaps from a phone?), spelling and grammar-wise. Apr 17, 2018 at 17:42

    @DanF your edit has now caused the spelling of ציצית to be in three different ways: "tziztis", "tziztzis" and "tzizts". If you want to edit it for spellings of Hebrew words, try to keep it uniform, please. Apr 17, 2018 at 17:45
