by Rabbi Dov Linzer (Posted on February 5, 2019)

Rabbi Linzer looks at some teshuvot about different kinds of chatzizot. How does Rav Moshe’s conceptual understanding of halakha shape his psak in these cases?

Iggros Moshe YD 1-98 Is an earplug a chatzizah?

Iggros Moshe – YD 1-97 Is a filling in a tooth a chatzizah?

Iggros Moshe – YD 1-96 Are braces a chatzizah?

Iggros Moshe – YD 1-104 Are contact lenses a chatzizah?
