THE FIRE DANCE

 THE FIRE DANCE

        

 



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

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

There will be those who will claim that dancing in front of
a fire is an accepted
מנהג בישראל and argue that it can't be
wrong when you have thousands of Yidden & Rebbes dancing
around the fire.

The same argument was probably also used when 
there  were thousands of Yidden worshipping the
עגל הזהב.

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מורה הוראה if this איסור דאורייתא is no
longer applicable today and why not?

 



see below excerpts of
שו"ת שבט הלוי ח"ז קל"ו
