Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Just as you can hang something on one nail (on the Amud) why can’t the same be done with many?

Tosfos (D”h Asheira) writes that there is a machlokes whether you can use issur hana’a for eruv.  How can one explain such a machlokes?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara states that the Eruv (‘Seudah’) needs to be suitable (edible) from daytime (‘Mib’od yom); why would it not suffice that it is suitable at the very moment of the Eruv’s activation, which is Bein Hashmashos?

 

Eruvin 36 – עירובין לו

Shabbos 35 – שבת לה

The Gemara concludes that we are meant to conduct ourselves stringently regarding the two opinions of bein hashmashos (i.e. melacha on Motzei Shabbos can only commence after the conclusion of the later bein hashmashos).  Since bein hashmashos in itself is a period of uncertainty (safek day safek night) why is melacha not permitted during the later bein hasmashos  since it is a double safek (safek sfeika)  1) maybe this moment is already past the real bein hashmashos 2) maybe bein hashmashos in itself is really night; as we know a double safek in Torah is permitted?
