QUESTION
DON’T FORGET TO MOVE YOUR CLOCKS BACK SATURDAY NIGHT
Halacha of the Week: Shabbat Starts Early!
As of late Motzoei Shabbat this week the clocks are set to be turned back one hour. As always, we approach
the winter and turn our clocks back one hour for, what we are told, a way to conserve energy. Notwithstanding
what we are told are benefits to us, there are a few pitfalls in regard to Halacha and the clock change that
should be reviewed.
For the most part, the most significant changes are that “morning” in a halachic framework becomes later and
the start of Shabbat becomes considerably earlier.
On a daily basis those getting up early to pray with a minyan will find that it is not possible to recite brachot on
Talis and Tefilin because, halacha does not consider it daytime. One needs to take care in watching the clock
to be sure that they do not say a bracha on their Talit, Tzitzit or Tefilin before the time that Halacha considers
daybreak.
As for the start of Shabbat, not only do we need to make a real point of arriving home in time to properly
prepare before Shabbat, but also to enter into an appropriate frame of mind. Not to mention, we have to be
careful to not begin a meal within 90 minutes of Shabbat, not travel outside the city after mid-day and to be
sure all of our food preparation has been done, including seeing that all food is placed for warming early
enough to be ready before sunset.
Being ready for Shabbat in the winter can sometimes be challenging. Nevertheless, one needs to prioritize
their time and be sure that they have accomplished what is needed and have the proper frame of mind to enter
Shabbat as the holy and special day it is.
