Post an Ethics Question to Rabbi Weiner


Blogger Rabbi Benjamin Rubin, MD said...

At what point does science over ride minhag. For example smoking was originally thought to be good for you, in stimulating your appetitie. From this people have the minhag os smoking on Yom Tov, and the Rabbanim have held that it is mavir aish le aish. Now we know smoking is a health hazard. Why do people continue to smoke on yom tov (and at all).
