Neder

Question:

Hi rabbi, thoughts go through my head that I cant buy a laptop and if I do something bad will happen to me, so I sort of decided that I wont buy one. is this a neder or kabala blev and if yes what should I do?
Thank you very much

 

Answer:

If you made the declaration that you are annuling all future nedarim, which you most probably did, then you don’t have to be concerned that what you thoiught was a neder. Although in general we don’t rely on the declaration for nedarim that were said, however we do rely on it for nedarim that one merely thought to do a mitzva. This does not mean that you should by the laptop. If it isn’t good for your spiritual well being, you are correct and don’t buy it, however you don’t have to be concerned that it is a neder.

Best wishes
