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should ask their מורה הוראה* if this איסור דאורייתא is no
longer applicable today and why not.

 

עיין שו"ת שבט הלוי ח"ז קל"ו
