Chapter 23, Mishnas 4, 5, 6

We are more lenient re waiting at the Shabbos boundary if attending to the needs of a corpse or a bride. A Jewish corpse may not be buried after Shabbos in a coffin or grave that was created for it on Shabbos. This is similar to bathing in hot water after Shabbos that was heated on Shabbos – permitted only if it was heated for the sake of non-Jews. We may attend to the physical needs of a corpse on Shabbos as long as we don’t move it. After death, the stomach gets its revenge for all the bad stuff we put in it. One may not close the eyes of the dead on Shabbos, and during the week we may not close their eyes even one moment before the soul departs from the body. Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel teaches that the world is a WHEEL. Be kind when you’re on top so Heaven will be kind to you when you’re on the bottom. Or your children, or your grandchildren. We must always pray for livelihood, even when things are good, and always give to charity. Source for giving a bit of money to charity before praying. Will we still perform mitzvos in the Messianic Age?
