Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Why is the concept of Befarhesya (public visibility) considered a determinant by Chillul Shabbos more than by other Mitzvos?

One thought on “Eruvin 69 – עירובין סט

  1. Shabbos unifies us and separates us from the rest of the world, as we say, ולא נתתו ה’ א’ לגויי הארצות ולא הנחלתו מלכנו לאובדי פסילים וגם במנוחתו לא ישכנו ערלים. As many Mitzvos as were imitated and adapted, this was never taken. When a person outwardly disregards Shabbos he is separating himself from Klal Yisroel.

    Likewise, Shabbos is an Edus. When he announces his Chilul Shabbos, this person is saying Edus against Shabbos. When it is secretly transgressed it is like other Aveiros.

    Truth is, this is something we know as a fact. When someone does certain Aveiros we hope he will get hold of himself and drop them. When someone flaunts Chilul Shabbos we know he is beyond reach (until further notice).

    Avoda Zara, on the other hand, means that the core of Yiddishkeit was dropped and disregarded.
