Shabbas 49a - The Mesirus nefesh of Elisha Baal Kenafayim

The Rishonim all ask – this seems like it is a shaas hashemad, so shouldn’t one have to be moser nefesh for anything even not the big three – as the gemara states in Sanhedrin, even arakta demasana – the tying of the shoelace? Tosfos limits the ruling of arakta demasana to be something that is making you dress not like a Jew, while not wearing tefilin is different, since many Jews don’t wear tefilin all day so you won’t look like a goy. The Ramban and others formulate the difference as follows – tefillin is an aseh, so for bittul aseh we do not have to be moser nefesh, since שב ואל תעשה שאני. This leads to a different question, if he did not have to be moser nefesh, why did he take a chance in the first place and wear them? (Similar to the famous question on Mordechai why he risked his and Am Yisrael’s life not bowing to Haman).

This question leads to the BIG machlokes if one is allowed to give up their life optionally (not the big three and not shaas hashemad). The Rambam (יסודי התורה ה:ד) rules that one cannot do so as he writes: כל מי שנאמר בו יעבור ואל יהרג ונהרג ולא עבר הרי זה מתחייב בנפשו. The Lechem Mishneh asks from our case to this halacha and therefore rejects the ideas suggested above (aseh is different or based on how you look), However, he says that Elisha was able to take off his tefillin once he did the mitzva of wearing tefillin that day.

Other Rishonim use this case among others as proof that one may decide to give their lives. The Ran (based on the Ramban)  writes (on the Rif in our sugya) “שאע”פ שאינו מחויב ליהרג על קיומיה אפ”ה רשאי למסור נפשו עליה ומקבל שכר שכל מצוה שמסרו ישראל נפשם עליה בשעת הגזירה מוחזקת בידם ומקבלין עליה שכר הרבה ….”

For an interesting listen on this (related to Holocaust responsa: http://www.yutorah.org/lectures/lecture.cfm/728723/Rabbi_Aaron_Rakeffet-Rothkoff/2008-11-02_Responsa_06, about halfway through the shiur

After four seasons of sobered shopping nearby treat buyers, looks in compensation grow were dominated beside white, nude and other non-partisan colors, which gave the clothes on the runway a softer, lighter look.

While looking at the calendar on my desktop, I find out that it's less than 20 days away from the Christmas. Time is up to prepare a gift for my wife and family. Last year, the winter is so cold, I just bought her several [url=http://www.aniub.com]UGG boots[/url] to warm her feet. But now my beautiful and slim girlfriend deserved more than before! I decide to give her a big pleasantly surprised, She love the high heel shoes so much, may be this is my best choice,[url=http://www.clpumps.com]Christian Louboutin shoes[/url] is a popular brand in recent years, the red high heels can make a women looks much more sexy, the special design and its high-quality raw materials also attract my eyes. The price may be a little expensive, how ever, it's worth the value. The high-heel shoes are favorites of ladies because the shoes adorn their legs, especially for the ladies whose legs are short. Maybe people usually saw high-heel shoes in the nightclubs 30 years ago, but now high-heel shoes help ladies a lot on dress up, no matter what you dress, it looks beautiful when you are wearing a pair of high-heel shoes and will attract men's eyes. The red sole design of Christian Louboutin is very beautiful,especially the [url=http://www.clpumps.com/Discount%20Christian%20Louboutin-pumps_c15]Christian Louboutin Pumps[/url], it is also a sign of the Christian Louboutin for about 20 years, but the one I have booked at a online Christian Louboutin shop is red and black, it looks very graceful and special, I think my wife should like it very much when she see open the gift box. Well, you know, the Christmas holiday is a good time for dating, next year maybe I will buy diamond ring, but this year Christian Louboutin is the best Christmas gift. What about your gifts for your girlfriends or the other friends?
