Shabbat 54: The Place of Rebuke

First, an addendum to the one-armed woman of yesterday.

Next: limits on what animals can wear, as it were, on Shabbat — and the implication of those limits on the animals’ human owners.

Plus: R. Elazar ben Azariah, and how he apparently let his cow go out on Shabbat wearing exactly the prohibited item – how can that be? A refresher as to who he was and the implications of this decision.

Dedicated in memory of Anna Rutner Sara bat Yom Tov v鈥橰achel, mother of Yoetzet Halakhah Bracha Rutner, our friend and co-learner.

(Some audio overlaps/cut-offs today; apologies – we’d get rid of them if we could!)

And, of course, Happy Yom HaAtzmaut!!
