LCSW Halacha shiur

LCSW Shomrim members attending "Emergencies in Halacha" shiur last night pertaining to search & rescue on Shabbos.


  1. What expertise to lcsw members have to be able to be mechalel shabbos are they on the same level as Hatzolah members, what about a regular guy who joins a search on shabbos is he allowed to be mechalel or its only the professionally trained that can be mechalel.

    1. If its to save a life there is no chillul shabbos involved.

    You gotta know the halachos!

  3. It looks like the olam in the photo has the mishna berura on their smart phones

  4. I once participated in a search on shabbos the coordinators came into shul looking for volunteers and had buses lined up on shabbos to bring us to the search area. initially some were reluctant to go but the coordinator said they have a psak how to deal in these situations. It would make sense for anyone to learn the basics so you have an idea when a situation arises.

  5. Hatzolah, Chaveirim & Lcsw will get called first before they start asking people to come search. They will get called 3 am to search and will go. Regular civilians not affiliated with a team may not want to go ontill the morning or at certain times........
