Shabbos 114 – שבת קיד

The community is required to support the Talmid Chacham who is preoccupied with his community’s affairs.  Why is this related to him being a Talmid Chacham?

According to Rebbi Yishmael why is there no Havdalla recited on Yom Kippur which falls out on Motzei Sahbbos – just as we make Havdalla on Yom Tov which falls out then?


One thought on “Shabbos 114 – שבת קיד

  1. Cheftzei Shamayim means Avodas Hashem, not paving the streets. It is the sign of someone being completely devoted to the Torah.

    As to Havdala on Yom Kippur that would fall on Motzei Shabbos, Rashi explained that since they are both Assur Bemelacha there is no Bein Kodesh Lekodesh. They have the same level of Kedusha.

    Although we differentiate between Shabbos and Yom Kippur when it comes to Hakrovas Eimurin, nevertheless, they are considered to have the same Kedusha. The Kedusha is when we refrain from Melacha. Kedusha is giving up more.

    Tosafos adds that we wouldn’t even make Havdala to make the point of Eimurin since Havdala is not as public an affair as Shofar and it wouldn’t accomplish enough to be worth adding it.
