|| Shabbat help
Message: This coming Shabbat there is a rabbi giving a shiur. I want to attend the shiur but I don't want to leave my wife alone with the 4 kids. So I want to hire a teenage girl to help out. But then I would be paying her to work on Shabbat. What do you suggest to make it permissible? Can I have her work for five minutes after havdalah and say I am paying her for this (when everyone knows I am not)?
Reply: You can't pay by the hour on Shabbat
So what do you suggest I do to make it muttar?
Reply: What Shiur is this?
Are you joking? Who cares what shiur it is? In fact, this is a common halakhic question that I think many people have, how to make life easier for their wives when they are away on Shabbat. So let's assume that R. Abadi was giving a shiur and I wanted to go, how could I work something out with a babysitter on Shabbat (or if I want to go to a Shalom Zakhor or anything similar)?
