An additional application is the prohibition to sprinkle purifying water on a tamei meis on Shabbos, even if that would allow him to offer his Korban Pesach. Pesachim 69a והזאה מאי טעמא לא דחיא שבת מכדי טלטולי בעלמא הוא תדחי שבת משום פסח אמר רבה גזירה שמא יטלנה ויעבירנה ארבע אמות ברשות הרבים What is the reason that the sprinkling of purifying water does not ...

The OK website here talks about when Lulavim are hard to source. It writes: When No Kosher Lulav Is Available There were many times in our history that it was impossible to purchase a kosher lulav. Sometimes this was due to war or import limitations, drought or disease of the plants, and, more commonly, extreme poverty. If one cannot obtain a kosher lulav, ...

To answer why the lulav, hadassim and aravot are bound, see e.g. Sukkah 33a: דתניא לולב בין אגוד בין שאינו אגוד כשר ר' יהודה אומר אגוד כשר שאינו אגוד פסול מאי טעמא דר' יהודה יליף לקיחה לקיחה מאגודת אזוב כתיב הכא (ויקרא כג, מ) ולקחתם לכם ביום הראשון וכתיב התם (שמות יב, כב) ולקחתם אגודת אזוב מה להלן אגודה אף כאן אגודה ורבנן לית להו לקיחה לקיחה מאן תנא להא דת&...

The gemarra in Chagigah 12b says that there are seven rekiyos, loosely translated as seven Heavens. ר"ל אמר שבעה ואלו הן וילון רקיע שחקים זבול מעון מכון ערבות Reish Lakish said: There are seven firmaments, and they are as follows: Vilon, Rakia, Sheḥakim, Zevul, Ma’on, Makhon, and Aravot. One of them is called Aravos. The gemarra goes on to describe ...

The Talmud in Sukkah 28b states the following: ת"ר כל שבעת הימים אדם עושה סוכתו קבע וביתו עראי כיצד היו לו כלים נאים מעלן לסוכה מצעות נאות מעלן לסוכה אוכל ושותה ומטייל בסוכה מה"מ דת"ר תשבו כעין תדורו מכאן אמרו כל שבעת הימים עושה אדם סוכתו קבע וביתו עראי כיצד היו לו כלים נאים מעלן לסוכה מצעות נאות מעלן לסוכה אוכל ושות' ומטייל בסוכה ומשנן בסוכה ...

Two that spring to mind are the following: In Gemara Succah 3a (amongst other places) there is a reference to Succah as being a מטללתא as in "אפומא דמטללתא" - the entrance of the Succah. See the Jastrow below for the source of the word: מַטְלָלָא, מְטָלָא m. (טְלַל I) shelter, hut, booth. Targ. Ps. X, 9 (Ms. מְטַלְלָא).—Y. Succ. III, beg. 53ᶜ ...

My Rov sent out a explanation for the davening on Hoshana Rabba as well as Simchas Torah which included what to do in the various sections of davening when not in a minyan. One who is davening alone without a minyan should only shake the Daled Minim for the 3 “Hodus” (one after “Halelu” and the 2 at the end of Hallel) and while reciting the first two “Ana ...

The takanah of Rabbi Yochanan ben Zakai was made as a lo plug, no differentiation whether there was an eruv or not. Also, it is not just a matter of carrying with no eruv.this is discussed in Not Shaking the Lulav on Shabbat. As Rashi explains, if communities with an eruv start bringing the lulav to shul, they would be violating the takanah of Rabbi Yochanan ...

An eruv is no better than one's own house. When Rav Yochanan ben Zakkai made the takana, he could have made it that everyone should take the lulav in their house before coming to shul. But we see that he was concerned that there might be one person who needed help, and would thus leave his house to ask for help in a forbidden way. It's a far-fetched concern,...
