The Shulchan Aruch rules (O.C. 294:1) that in general one need not repeat Shemonah Esrei for forgetting Atah Chonantanu. The exception where one does have to repeat it is if he also ate before making havdalah on wine: ואם טעה ולא הבדיל משלים תפלתו ואינו חוזר מפני שצריך להבדיל על הכוס ואם טעם קודם שהבדיל על הכוס צריך לחזור ולהבדיל בתפלה Given that if ...

The Gemara (Baba Metziah 90a) discusses this: איבעיא להו: מהו שיאמר אדם לנכרי חסום פרתי ודוש בה, מי אמרינן: כי אמרינן אמירה לנכרי שבות - הני מילי לענין שבת, דאיסור סקילה, אבל חסימה דאיסור לאו - לא. או דלמא לא שנא There is a dispute in the Rishonim how to pasken. The Rambam (Sechirus 13.3) paskens it is forbidden. אמר לעכו"ם חסום פרתי ודוש בה. ישב ...

R' Shlomo Kluger in Shu"t U’vacharta BaChaim (§87) vehemently forbade such practice, after an incident where a local Rav permitted a kvittel to be written and sent to the Belzer Rebbe on Shabbos. The Eshel Avraham (328.17) quotes a yesh omrim that it is forbidden, but leaves off 'וצ״ע' דלכתוב שיבא אוהבו אצלו או שיתפללו בעדו י"ל דאסור וצלע"ע היטב ...

The Shulchan Aruch (338:6) rules that it is forbidden. דאמירה לעכו"ם אסור בכל איסורין כמו בשבת However, it is important to note that the exact parameters will be different to that of Shabbos. Regarding Shabbos, there are other prohibitions often mixed together with amirah lakum, which are of a different origin and therefore would not apply by other ...

The Chabad rabbis I've met go out of their way to welcome people in. They also have to know that for the Reform movement in particular with their stance on patrilineal descent, there is a non-trivial chance of issues with the halachic status of non-Orthodox Jews. I'm a member of a Reform congregation and when I had to make last-minute seder plans one year, ...

In the Sefer Hamelech BeMesibo vol 2, page 30, the previous Lubavitcher Rebbe is quoted as saying that to an angel each moment is incredibly precious. A single moment is a long time for an angel. The fact that they tarried even a moment is a big thing and they actually stayed a long time. therefore it is not disrespectful to wish them a safe departure. I ...

I think you are confusing the different concepts. The discussion about a man being motze his wife on Friday night is a very different conversation to that of Shabbos day. Friday night: This discussion revolves around the dispute whether arvus - the concept that one can exempt his fellow's obligation even after he has discharged his own - exists from a man ...

Rabbi Nachum Rabinowitz talks about this in Techumin vol 13. He goes into it a bit (fire/nolad/מתקן מנא), and ultimately concludes that he doesn't see any reason for this to be assur and then explicitly permits it for soldiers/emergency lighting.

The Rivevos Ephraim 7:104:2 was asked about a stick light(glow stick) which have two main concerns. Is there an issue of fire here and is there an issue of nolad. The questioner believes that there is no fire aspect ,and is only concerned for he issur of nolad. The Rivevos Ephraim answered that it should be mutar in cases of emergency since nolad is not ...
