One thought on “Eruvin 74 – עירובין עד

  1. I think the Gemara means that a Rabim is not allowed to make themselves a Yachid and circumvent the necessity of S’chirus. This is the old Takanna. We can’t disallow living with a Goy, since people find themselves in all sorts of peculiar situations. Instead, we made it hard to do so as a way do discourage it, but we didn’t make it impossible.

    This is the balance between discouraging something and punishing for it.
