Shabbos Goy: What’s the Story?

“It’s Freezing. It’s Shabbos can a goy turn on the heat?”

“The light was left on and my child can’t sleep, can I ask my neighbor to turn it off?”

“It’s a shabbos simcha, can I ask a non-jew to push the stroller?”

“What about using a cleaning lady?”

One of the most common unknown areas in halacha is “When can you ask a non-jew to do work for you on Shabbos?” Due to lack of clarity, people can become either unnecessarily stringent or too lax. You may be surprised to find out that what you thought was a problem, is not, and what you thought was not a problem, is not so simple.

Come and hear the answers to these and many other practical questions in a special shiur by Rabbi Yosef Yeshaya Braun.

Sunday, 19 Cheshvon, November 17 at 8:30-9:30 pm followed by Mairiv.

At Mishkan Moshe 580 Crown St.

The shiur is a joint project of Mishkan Moshe and Ohr Halacha.

Mishkan Moshe is an active Beis Medrash centered at 580 Crown, which is in memory of R’ Moshe hakohen ben Tzion.

Ohr Halacha is a Crown Heights based organization dedicated to spreading awareness of halacha and Jewish life, directed by Rabbi Avraham Lerner.
