Electricity on Shabbat
One of the most pressing problems for the orthodox Jewish world is that of using electricity on Shabbat and Yom Tov. When I have written in the past about Yom Tov, many readers wanted to know what is the difference between Shabbat and Yom Tov and what is the opinion of Halakha regarding electricity on Shabbat. Well, it is hard to say what is the opinion of Halakha, since there are so many voices in our over-communicated world, but it seems that most people believe that the use of electricity is categorically forbidden. In that spirit, we could say that the question was: are there any opinions which do not consider electricity forbidden, or consider it to be less severe than a biblical prohibition?
