“Prior to our marriage, I was taught that one may open cans on Shabbos, provided
one does not reuse the can, whereas my wife was taught that this is strictly forbidden.
Since I was taught by someone very knowledgeable and observant, there is something
inconsistent here that I would like to understand.”
Writing is counted among the melachos prohibited on Shabbos. Permanent writing is prohibited min haTorah, while temporary writing is prohibited only miderabbanan. Bringing together two complete letters does not constitute writing.
Clients of mine want to rent out a building that has served for a family business to a religious group, who will use part of it as a shul. They are concerned that if things do not work out, they will get back control of the building with some of it having the restrictions of a shul, which would restrict their use of it. Is this a problem, and if so what can be done to obviate the problem?
