RULE MAKERS

[18a bottom] Gemarah: The Rabbis have the flexibility to determine which laws of Melacha (creative activities) were permitted/prohibited on the intermediate “lesser” days of Holiness throughout the Holiday of Pesach [they were considerate in allowing many work related activities to be performed on these days].

E’s Lessons: When we are given authoritative power to make rules and decisions, we should never get too carried away with it. We should always keep other peoples’ feelings and considerations in mind when establishing guidelines in how our lives should be set.
