Together, let's build an Open Library for the r a Book. The phraseology of the Talmud indicates two things: firstly, that kevod ha-beriyot is gadol (great); secondly, that it has the power to override rabbinic commandments (and, at least passively, biblical ones as well). These two aspects are not necessarily identical. Briefly, Prof. Sperber focuses on the halakhic concept kevod ha-beriyot, which refers to shame or embarrassment which would result from the fulfillment of a religious obligation. Thus, the Gemara in Berakhot 19b indicates that if one is wearing sha’atnez –the wearer is obligated to remove it even in the marketplace, despite any possible.

Editor's Introduction to Elul Edition Korn 1 Welcome to the Elul edition of The Edah articles published in the Journal have generated greater discussion than those in the Sivan edition authored by Rabbis Mendel Shapiro and Yehudah Herzl Henkin.   This yields the conservative and frugal approach with which the concept of kevod ha-beriyot is applied in halakhic decision-making. So strong is this concern that in modern-day responsa literature one hardly finds an instance in which a prohibition - even a rabbinic one - is overridden by kevod ha-beriyot.

Berakhot 19ba, which examines the parameters of the principle, “Human dignity is so great that it overrides a biblical prohibition” (gadol kevod ha-beriyot she-doheh et lo ta’aseh she-ba-Torah). However, in this case the Talmud’s analysis is motivated by a specific conflict between this moral principle and the theological principle.   The reality that emerges from study of response, however, is one of a vibrant and pulsating world of differential pesak rooted in context, the weighing of various factors, the reality of human and spiritual needs (often recognized by halakha in terms such as tza’ar, she’at ha-dechak, kevod ha-beriyot, mishum iggun, etc.), balanced.
