The Fire Dance




Parshas Hashavua אחרי- קדושים
ובחקתיהם לא תלכו

According to Rashi the Pasuk of ובחקתיהם לא תלכו refers
to not following and practicing דרכי אמורי

The תוספתא (Shabbos 7:1) enumerates various practices
that are אסור to do because they are considered דרכי אמורי.
One of them is dancing in front of a fire.

Dancing in front of a fire would be an איסור דאורייתא
of ובחקתיהם לא תלכו.

Ashkenazic Yidden especially in חוץ לארץ never had the
Minhag of making a  ל"ג בעומר הדלקה and dancing in front
of the fire.
Perhaps, those planning to dance in front of the fire
should ask their מורה הוראה* if this איסור דאורייתא is no
longer applicable today and why not.
