From Dinonline.org: The Question: If someone is lo aleinu sick and adds a name to his existing name does he have to have written a new Kasubah? Answer: The Iggros Moshe (Choshen Mishpat 2:70:2) writes that if a person is not called by his new name, one does not write a new kesubah after a name was added due to illness. This is also the ...

In Sefer Nishmat Avraham- Orach Chaim Siman 123 The Pardes Yosef offers a number of reasons why it is unnecessary to change the text of a prayer on his behalf. First: It is known that one's soul is considered to have "limbs" corresponding to the physical limbs of the body and, although he has lost one of his physical limbs, all of his spiritual "limbs" are ...

I can't think of any mitzva per se from which a colorblind individual would be exempted. However there are judgement calls that an expert (usually a rabbi) has to make, some of which involve color. As you'd said, one of them is the color of certain stains with regards to nida. I know of a color-blind rabbi who does all sorts of leadership roles for his ...

R. Akiva Eiger (Igrot Sofrim 29) was asked whether minyanim should be held during a cholera outbreak or whether public gatherings should be avoided altogether. His response was that they should continue holding minyanim but in an open area, in groups no larger than 15, where the same 15 people always daven together. This is a compromise where one limits ...

I'm thinking no because in Sefer Nishmat Avraham- Orach Chaim Siman 1 it is written: "Indeed, Chazal stated: The Holy One, Blessed be He, said: There is no illness for which a complete cure is not already present. The footnote says(I'm translating from Hebrew) Tanchumah Yitro Chet

A source for using the name of the mother is the gemara Shabbos 66b: Abayei said: Mother told me that all incantations should contain the name of the mother.

First of all, I would think that this would fall under the general טרחא דצבורא category - a Chazzan does not wait for people taking too long to daven or to respond amen to continue with chazzaras hashatz (O.C. 124:3 Rama), so I assume adding in a litany of cholim would also be included. That being said, the rules of adding (even in one's personal Shemoneh ...

Hm. As I understand it, the reason Ashkenazim don't eat matza-made-with-fruit-juice is to respect a minority opinion in Tosfos, that it would create a certain form of chametz. But if someone is ill, we rely on the majority opinion. Kitniyos is purely a custom, and one that was never decreed against those who are ill. Hence my guess is all else being equal, ...

In short: yes, we find cases in halacha where a person is considered in danger, even though medically we see no reason for it. The details are discussed in Shulchan Aruch. You can find a synopsis in the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch. For example, in סימן צב - דין חולה שיש בו סכנה we find: סעיף ד' כָּל מַכָּה שֶׁבִּפְנִים הַגּוּף, דְּהַיְנוּ מִן הַשָּׂפָה ...
