Rav Shalom Charif: When Do We Need Elijah? Print E-mail
Written by Machberes Avodas Hashem   

WritingsThe 16th of Adar is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Shalom Charif (1825). Having learned under Rav Pinchas Halevi Horowitz (the Baal Haflaah) in Frankfurt for many years, Rav Shalom became Rav and Rosh Yeshiva in Ansbach, a town in Bavaria, Germany. He later moved to Hungary and served as Rav in Stampen, Frauenkirchen, and Lankenbach. Only one of his manuscripts, Divrei Rash, on several mesechtas, has been published.

 

Elijah will only come to answer questions about Jewish law when we are stringent in a situation that has a negative effect on someone’s life. However, when the issue is one about which we are lenient, such as “Safek Mamzer,” whether a person has the status of being the issue of an affair of a married woman with a man other than her husband, about which we rule, “Safek mamzer, kasher,” that in cases of doubt we are lenient; Elijah does not come to clarify the law. (Divrei Rash, Berachot)
