This week’s article is the first of a two-part series concerning the halachah of rodef. The series will seek to explain the basic principles of the rodef law, and demonstrate how these principles can apply to a range of difficult issues. Questions such as the legitimacy of killing one person to save another, whether a baby can be a rodef, and how a novel approach to rodef saved the life of a Siamese twin, will be clarified in the article. This week’s Q & A will discuss winding up a mechanical watch on Shabbos.
