Why are people comfortable doing things like opening an awning or the cover on a stroller [if it was already open a tefach] but chas ve-shalom anyone should use an umbrella?


melech, :)

Oh. We learnt this! I have to look it up in my notes. I think it was that the stroller case it already existed and you are not creating the ohel...

Okay... found it in my notes. It's based on a gemara - Eiruvin 102a.

Rav explained to Rav Huna that if the partition (or cover) exists on is permitted to add to it. This is why the baby cartridge cover is permitted.

Oh, I posted that before I saw your reply.

I found something else interesting.

Nodah Bihuda (tinyana simon 30) held it's an isser Torah! (Both Ohel and Making a Kli). But the Chatam Sofer simon 72 disagrees and says it's not even an issur d'rabanan since it's built to open and close.

See Bi’ur Halacha in se’if 8 “tefach” which says the problem is the umbrella needs to be tied to be held open. (Our modern umbrellas don't work like that however.)

The Chazon Ish 52:6 disagrees with the Nodah Bihuda and says like the baby cartridge roof it's not Ohel but he says it IS making a Kli - because once it is open it can be transported and used anywhere. He also holds it's a uvda d'chol. He wrote that is was important for the leading rabbanim of the generation to erect barriers against it and that it's stricter than a personal chumra.

SS”K 24:15 explains why it's even forbidden if the umbrella was opened before shabbos!

That's all very interesting but for all the thumb waving and talmudic hair splitting, at the end of the day, "everybody" uses a cover on their stroller that was opened a tefach before shabbat and "nobody" uses an umbrella regardless. Which appears to me to be an application of the principle, "People do what they do and they don't what they don't".

The way umbrellas are opened is creating an ohel. The fact that you opened it before shabbos just makes it maris ayin. A stroller may not have the problem of maris ayin cuz it isnt always closed to make it be opened, or cuz there are plenty of strollers that arent built like that.

It's presumptuous of "rp" to claim he understands the reason behind the geder.

There's no reason.

The Node B'Yehuda came up with an inexplicable stringent chumra that no one else understood* with and few poskim agreed with, but for some reason it "caught on" and umbrella = sheigetz...

*I remember when learning this is Kollel (I was too smart for Yeshiva so I went straight there), that we couldn't possibly understand how the Node B'yehuda derived that there was an Issur D'oarisa here or why he was so stringent...

What I said before. Ma'ris ayin. Nobody opens an umbrella unless they're gonna use it.

Because we asked a rav who said it was okay.

Did the Rav explain on what basis an umbrella is different than a stroller canopy?

Nope. At the time I didn't really even understand the question but a friend mentioned to me that there may be an issue so I asked about it.

Someone needs to ask Ovadya Yosef if it is okay to carry an umbrella that has been opened before Shabbat in an area that has an eruv.

stroller covers are different only if the cover a tefach already, based on the principle of mosif al ohel aro'i. see the s"a/m"b on vilon s'fino for details.
"Spiritual wants and instincts are as various in the human family as are physical appetites, complexions, and features, and a man is only at his best, morally, when he is equipped with the religious garment whose color and shape and size most nicely accommodate themselves to the spiritual complexion, angularities, and stature of the individual who wears it."

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

-Mark Twain
