UOHC’s Eye Watering Stuff

UOHC-Thames Water Powerpoint by ifyoutickleus on Scribd

So UOHC brought to the meeting a Dayan, a lawyer, indeed a technician, a handful of arsekonim and a token woman. Truly eye watering stuff.

Does the UOHC Rabbinate insist that it is prohibited to walk past a CCTV camera?

Misasek (I want water, not to turn a meter) + gerama (I didn't flick a switch, I turned on a tap, llowing a flow of water (under pressure from a pumping station) causing a rotor in to move several meters away, which movement is measured electronically) + pesik reisha d'lo nicha le (nobody likes water bills) + electronic equipment which does not get hot is (scientifically at least) a derabban anyway (not m'a'aver and makka b'patish non issue as doesn't complete a circuit) = no issue here. Unless you happen to be a purveyor of mehadrin water meters?

By the UOHC's bizarre definition, turning on the tap itself is prohibited (the pressure in the pipes is from electrical pumps (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_water_supply_infrastructure#Pumping_stations). Which presumably is not an issue until a mehadrin water pump is found?

This is all so completely unnecessary - and very much a potential chillul hashem.

Especially as Rav Padwa z'l permits walking past a motion activated light even lechatchila and you know its there.

UOHC are not worried about chilul hashem. After all, the goyim are in golus.

Seriously with the rising tide of nationalism all over the West they should be keeping a low profile. But Rabbis as they were 90 years ago are blissfully isolated.

Not to mention d'rabbonons are muttar lechatchila for kovod habriyos. Even without coming on to dovor shelo b'mischaven and all that.
