Shifting focus from the object that is carried to the subject who is doing the carrying. Right hand, left hand, in your lap, on your shoulder. Alternatively, carrying in an alternative way – with a “shinui,” not the normal way of carrying – that exempts the carrier from culpability for the act of carrying. What about carrying on your head?! Anshei Hotzel (or Hutzal) did regularly carry their baskets on their head. The Gemara emends this text itself… Also, a woman who wears a “sinar” (pants? pantaloons? a skirt over jeans?) – indusputed (!) halakha. Plus: When carrying must be divided among 2 people. Who’s Who: Bnei Kehat.
