Chapter 83:1
Areas Enclosed by Partitions

1. One is permitted to carry within an area enclosed by walls (a private domain), only if the area was enclosed for dwelling purposes.

What is meant by "enclosed for dwelling purposes ('Hukaf LeDira')"? Building a house or opening a doorway from one's house, and then enclosing the area with partitions, in the way one generally creates courtyards around houses; in such an instance, even if the area is extremely large, it retains its status as a private domain [and hence, one may carry within it].

In contrast, areas that are not enclosed for the purpose of dwelling, like gardens or orchards, which are enclosed only to protect the trees and plants growing there, are classified according to their size. If the enclosed area would not require more than two "seahs" [of seed to sow it], one is permitted to carry within it; however, if the area is large enough to require more than two "seahs" [of seed], it is given the status of a "carmelis" [and hence, one would not be allowed to carry within it] (1).

FOOTNOTES:

(1) The dimensions of an area requiring two "seahs" of seed will be discussed in the next halacha.
