My in-laws are very particular to never open an umbrella or otherwise make a tent indoors. Does anyone know the source for this?October 30, 2014 4:38 am at 4:38 am #1038898JosephParticipant
Isn’t there an issue wearing a big hat becoming an ohel?October 30, 2014 5:11 am at 5:11 am #1038899Patur Aval AssurParticipantOctober 30, 2014 11:23 am at 11:23 am #1038900October 30, 2014 11:24 am at 11:24 am #1038901ChortkovParticipant
I once heard one of the bubba meisas that if you open an umbrella indoors it will rain at your Chasuna…October 30, 2014 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #1038902
I’ve heard that one, too. But what if you’re already married? And what about making a ‘tent’ out of two chairs and a blanket for playing camp-out? Or opening the hood of a baby carriage?October 30, 2014 9:32 pm at 9:32 pm #1038903
If the rain one is true you just solved the shidduch crisis.October 30, 2014 10:19 pm at 10:19 pm #1038904☕️coffee addictParticipant
it didnt say when they would get marriedOctober 30, 2014 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #1038905Sam2Participant
I don’t know about an Issur. I doubt one exists. Etiquette dictates not to open an umbrella in a house. So maybe being Makpid not to open an umbrella indoors is Chukas Akum?October 30, 2014 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #1038906
But it’s a guarantee that they will get married. Also good when there’s a drought.October 31, 2014 1:01 am at 1:01 am #1038907
Uh, why does etiquette dictate not to open an umbrella in a house?
I’ve heard all sorts of interesting things, and then learned that there are real, halachic reasons for not doing them (usually summarized as ‘it is brought down in seforim hakedoshim’). Examples: Not interleaving one’s fingers, not showing a baby his or her reflection in a mirror until he or she has teeth, not having a bird in the house.
So I thought that someone in CR-land would have a source for this.November 2, 2014 3:50 am at 3:50 am #1038908PosterMember
these things are assur on shabbos i think due to bonehNovember 2, 2014 3:57 am at 3:57 am #1038909
Right, but that’s Shabbos. They don’t do these things even during the week.
(I just know that some joker’s going to ask how showing a baby his reflection is boneh.)November 2, 2014 4:14 am at 4:14 am #1038910
Opening an umbrella indoors is dangerous.November 2, 2014 4:22 am at 4:22 am #1038911Patur Aval AssurParticipant
There is plenty of discussion in Taharos about ohel inside an ohel or house and I have yet to see anyone say anything against making one. If there is such an issue, it’s probably kaballah. R’ Shlomo Aviner was asked about it and he said that it’s a superstition:
“Opening Umbrella Inside
Q: Is it unlucky to open an umbrella inside
A: Superstition. (but not to be done on Shabbat, as an umbrella is Muktzeh)”November 2, 2014 4:24 am at 4:24 am #1038912
It could poke someone in the eye.
