Wearing Two Layers of Clothing in a Place With no Eruv

Wearing Two Layers of Clothing in a Place With no Eruv
Day: Tuesday
Date: November 17, 2015
Parshat: Vayetze
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 301

In memory of Avraham Asher ben Tzadika

Wearing an item into a Reshut Harabim in the way that it is normally worn is not considered carrying. Likewise, wearing two of the same garment such as two shirts or two pairs of socks, is also not considered carrying even if the second one is being worn only to bring to another person. Ashkenazim however, are more strict in this regard and do not wear two belts at the same time unless the second one is worn over a different layer of clothing. Ashkenazim may wear two shirts for example, since it is not uncommon for a person to wear two shirts to protect against the cold. However, since there is no practical reason to wear two belts that may not be done unless they are over separate layers.

DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at sephardichalacha.org
