Halajá para miércoles 9 Iyar 5781 21 abril 2021





Como vimos en la entrega anterior, existen nudos prohibidos de realizar por la Torá en Shabbat, puntualmente los nudos que se realizan para que permanezcan atados y asimismo se trata de  nudos artesanales, o sea que se requiere de cierta pericia para realizarlos, como los nudos marineros y los nudos que se hacen en la nariz perforada de los camellos para colocar una soga y guiarlos.

Veremos a continuación los nudos prohibidos de realizar en Shabbat por decreto rabínico. 
Como adelantamos, un nudo que se hace para que permanezca indefinidamente, aún cuando no se trate de un nudo artesanal, lo prohibieron nuestros sabios. Por ejemplo el nudo que se hace para sostener el tobo con el que se extrae agua, que no es nn nudo artesanal, cualquiera puede realizarlo, pero es un nudo que se hace para que permanezca allí indefinidamente.

Lo mismo rige para un nudo artesanal pero que se realiza  para desatarlo al día siguiente o a la semana siguiente –como veremos más adelante- se prohibe sólo por decreto rabínico ya que según la Torá no se cumplen las dos condiciones para prohibirlo.

Los nudos que no reúnen ninguna de las dos condiciones exigidas por la Torá, o sea no son nudos artesanales y tampoco se los hace para que permanezcan indefinidamente, están permitidos anudarlos en Shabbat. Aclararemos al respecto en la próxima entrega.

Question: At what point does it become permissible to speak after reciting a blessing on food? Is one permitted to speak immediately after placing the food in one’s mouth and tasting the food’s flavor or must one wait until one swallows the food?
