When can you ask a non-Jew to work for you on Shabbat? What about asking a non-Jew during the week to do what we are prohibited from doing? What about someone on the path to conversion? Join Rabbi Dovid Fink as he explores the world of ‘Shabbos Goy.’
Shabbos Goy: Shabbos Goy
Requesting a non-Jew to work for us on Shabbat is in general prohibited.
In this series we will survey halachic leniencies permitting such requests.
Source materials in Hebrew are available through the link. In class, we will translate and explain these sources.
In addition to being one of Rabbi Brovender's first students, Rabbi Dovid Fink is an outstanding expertﾠand teacher of Halacha. Rabbi Fink received his Rabbinic ordination from ITRI and the Mir and was awarded his Ph.D in Semitic Languages and Linguistics from Yale University. Rav Fink has taught thousands of students from all over the world for over 35 years.
