Amira l’eino yeshudi – parameter of b’makom mitzvah

In this shiur we analyzed the nature of the prohibition of playing musical instruments on shabbat (here is a link to those mekorot) in order to better understand a surprising leniency of the Raavya (quoted in the Tur) permitting people to arrange for non-Jew to play music at a seudat nissuin on Friday night.  This opened up an important discussion on the nature of the heter of b’makm mitzvah. (here is a link to those mekorot)

We then addressed the issue of having a non-Jew fix an eruv on shabbat.  This introduced the category of mitzvah-d’rabim which becomes a way in which we revive the position of the ittur. (here is a link to the eruv mekorot)

There were some internet problems, so the shiur was divided on the audio into three parts:

Amira – Musical Instruments – Fixing the Eruv 1

Amira – Musical Instruments – Fixing the Eruv 2

Amira – Musical Instruments – Fixing the Eruv 3
