Re: Restricted areas of DDF
Lets hear the story.Eta:
A written version of the story has been brought to my attention via the ddfra.
Reb Yonasan Eybeschutz (1690 - 1764) once took a walk with the priest in the city park. In their conversation, the priest asked, “Does it not say in your Torah "אחרי רבים להטות", that you should follow the majority? Since the Christians are the majority, why do you not follow us?”
Reb Yonasan says to him, “Please look toward the heavens and count the angels.”
"Are you out of your mind?" said the priest. "There are no angels.”
"I know,” said Reb Yonasan, "but work with me please. Look up and count the angels.”
So the Rabbi and the priest stood there and gazed up at the sky ...
Seeing them looking up, a crowd slowly gathered around, and when they heard that the rabbi and the priest saw angels, they also began to "see" them. One sees six, the other sees eight, one fellow sees dancing angles, another sees sleeping angels.
After a few minutes, with a sizable crowd attracted and counting angels, Reb Yonasan took the priest aside and said to him:
"Between you and me, how many angels are there really?"
"Zero, of course", replied the priest.
"How can you possibly say that with certainty when such an impressive crowd is convinced they see the angels...Don't you follow the majority?"
Realizing the point, the priest replied, “But you Jews also follow blindly, you follow the Rabbis regardless!”
Reb Yonasan invited him to attend his shul services that Shabbos.
When the time came for the Haftara, Reb Yonasan announced that this week they were going to lain a completely different random Haftara. This ignited a huge uproar in Shul.
"Am I not the Rov?" he asked the mispallelim.
But the commotion only grew.
Reb Yonasan motioned to the priest as if to say, "I rest my case" and continued with the regular Haftara.

The big difference is that with regards to almost all halachos of shabbos the issues are the actions not the outcome.
Therefore if you can accomplish the same outcome without performing the action there's no issue.

Re: Los Angeles Master Thread
Thank you for not starting a new thread, and for doing some research. Not so often to come by such people these days.
I think here might be a better option.
