Raincoats (daf Yomi) Yoma 53b
to Mori V'Rabi Harav Hagaon R.Shlomo Miller Shlita,
You may not wear raincoats in a רשות הרבים (No Eiruv) while
the attached hood is tucked inside its pocket.
Yoma 53b The Gadol Hador
Davened for a raincoat
The Gemoro tells the story of R. Chanina Ben Dosa, who was walking
on the street and the rain came down on him. He Davened to Hashem
and said,” the whole world has comfort and Chanina is in pain.”
The מהרש"א asks how could it be, The Chosid R. Chanina B.D. would
ask Hashem to stop the rain for the whole world, for his
comfort, even at the expense of the rest of the world.
The בן יהוידע (Ben Ish Chai) answers," all he asked from
Hashem was, he should manage to find a coat to protect him from
However, Hashem stopped the rain instead, לכבוד R.Ch.B.D."
