Dear rabbi,

There was no rabbinic precaution that I noted on my online searches this year to avoid looking at an eclipse through protective lenses. Should we consider this a future concern if any jew accidentally looks directly at the eclipse?

It would seem that we missed an important chance to heal Israel this year.



We are commanded ,”Ushmartem Me’od l’nafshosheichem”,  to be very careful about our health, however nowadays the rabbis generally don’t make enactments, especially to something that occurs vey seldom- once in a hundred years.
