For Jewish Sabbath, Elevators Do All the Work

“Don’t get in that one!” a woman cried, standing in front of an open elevator door, a quiet toddler in her arms.

But why? Was this elevator dangerous?

Well, no. But in a city where perhaps the dirtiest word of all is “wait,” it was close enough.

“It’ll stop on like every floor,” said the woman, Shira Stember, standing in the lobby of a Seward Park co-op building on the Lower East Side. While she is happy the elevator is there for her neighbors, Ms. Stember said, she prefers to take the next car, because this open door leads into a Shabbos elevator. ...

I actually think that not having to touch a button in an elevator is good to avoid touching germy surfaces.

Matthew 23
Religious hypocrisy ("robbery & self-indulgence") is the subject of Jesus's rebuke in Matt. 23, not merely legal hair-splitting. He didn't tell the Pharisees to stop cleaning their crockery, but to repent from their inner uncleanness (using crockery as a metaphor).

Legalism, be it Christian or Jewish is nonsense.a

Matthew 23
25 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside they are full of robbery and self-indulgence.
26 "You blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that the outside of it may become clean also.---NASB

For Jews I can see thinking about the Sabbath, i.e., Shabbat could have some useful purpose. But, too often the ceremonies take place of what the meaning of something that is behind them.

Numbers 15:32-36
King James Version (KJV)
32And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.

33And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation.

34And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him.

35And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp.

36And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses.

If your Rabbi teaches that an elevator call button is parallel to picking up sticks, you wouldn't want to touch it.

The Amish share similar concerns with most technological advances, but on a daily basis.

I have to wonder by what logic they think they can walk to & fro in the 1st place; surely that takes more effort than pushing buttons. But this illustrates the ludicrous extremes to which Rabbinic casuistry can go.
