Shayla Section -
Sabbath Mode Ovens - Someone asked me about using a Sabbath Mode oven to put food in on Shabbat. A: Sabbath Mode is a good thing to use to remove food that was put in before Shabbat from some ovens - because it turns off functions, like the light or an electronic indicator light. However, putting food directly into an oven on Shabbat itself is a practice that is generally not allowed - with a Sabbath Mode over or without. One of the advantages of the Sabbath Mode oven really can be found for the holidays and it really should be called the Yom Tov Mode oven. This is because according to some rabbis, (Rav Moshe Heineman of Baltimore prominent among them,) the Sabbath Mode may be used on a (non Sabbath) Yom Tov to turn the oven temperature inside the electronic display oven up and down. This is permitted because the display does not change at all and the oven begins to work on a random delay. For more on this topic please discuss with me anytime.

Shayla Section - Q:  Someone asked me recently - What can I do about a stain that I get on my tablecloth or shirt on Shabbos? I've seen people pour water or seltzer on it to try to remove the stain.  A:  Pouring any liquid onto cloth is a violation of the melacha (forbidden category of 'work') of Melabein (whitening or laundering) and cannot be done on Shabbos.  One can remove pieces of dirt or stain with a napkin or such that is dry, but cannot try to remove the stain from the garment or tablecloth.  If the tablecloth is made from a non-absorbent material such as plastic, one may add water to the surface and then wipe up the stain.  However, one must be careful to use a large enough towel to wipe it up so that the towel does not become saturated with liquid which could lead to the melacha of sechita (squeezing our liquids).

Shayla Section: A question I received this week was in regards to the seriousness of our minhag of keeping the restrictions of listening to music during sefira - could one go to a very important event of live music that came out soon after Pesach? My answer is that we do take the custom of sefira seriously and one should be strict to keep it - however, in a case of need, Rav Moshe Feinstein ruled that one may 'switch' their custom from 'First Sefira' (from Pesach until Lag B'Omer) to 'Second Sefira' (from Rosh Chodesh Iyar until Shavuot) for a year, because according to Tosephot's opinion, the students of Rabbi Akiva died for 33 days during this period of time - but not up and until Lag B'Omer.

Shayla Section - May one use an electric or battery operated light for Shabbos Candles and may one make a bracha on them?  A:  Although it is not ideal and only used in a situation where one cannot light a real fire, one may use electric light for Shabbos candles and even make a bracha on them.  Common time when one may need to do this would be in a hospital or hotel or even turning on the light in a closet when staying as a guest at another's home.
