Back to oils for Shabbat candles – don’t use the highly flammable kind, your hated daughter-in-law might catch on fire (yeah, we don’t understand this story well enough either). And: What happens if you can’t get olive oil where you live? The difference between a Torah list of what is prohibited and a Torah list of what is permitted – when something is not on the prohibited list, and also isn’t on the permitted list, does that make it default permitted or default prohibited? Our discussion is limited to the Shabbat candle oils lists, and does not extend to other such lists at this time.
NOTE: Today, Anchor’s audio went wonky on us – with gaps and overlaps that were not the plan, nor our preference. We hope they don’t inconvenience you too much.
