The difference is discussed extensively in the eighth perek of Ketubot. נכסי מלוג refers to assets that a woman brings into the marriage, or which falls to her as either an inheritance or as a gift after she has married, but which are not included in the value of the ketubah. The word melog comes from the Aramaic מליגה, which means "plucking": her husband ...

If the child is the deceased brother's, then Yibbum does not apply and the brother-in-law and her are biblically forbidden to marry each other. Thus, they must wait (ShA EH 164:1). Paternity is also important in determining who the child is related to regarding Arayot, in cases where the husband and brother are of different lineage (eg. the husband was a ...

Yevamos 41a - Mishna says that a Yevama should not do Chalitza or Yibum until three months have passed. Thus the waiting period is applicable also in a case of Yibbum.

Shemirat Shabbat Kehilchata (16:18, cf. footnotes 69, 82) notes that the practice is to be lenient and cites the following from Orchot Chayim (Shabbat 261) to try and justify the practice, though in closing with a reference to the Beiur Halacha (303:18 sv. Ki) he indicates how weak he believes the justification is. וכן האשה לא תצא בדבר שהוא חוצץ בפני ...

Nitei Gavriel - Shiduchim V'tanoim - 41:1 in the name of Teshuvas HaBach 23, Sh"ut Noda B'Yehuda 68, Sh"ut Toafos Re'em 41, Sh"ut Maharsham 4:154 says that it is forbidden to break an engagement. However this is in a case where there is Tanoim. In 41:2 he elaborates in the notes that even without Tanoim one should not break a Shidduch, however he says there ...

I don't think there is any problem with doing this. You are not creating the image, you are just allowing it to be seen by removing something which prevented you from seeing it. There is a discussion regarding a form of invisible ink that by putting it next to the flame it can be seen, which according to the Pri Megadim is rabbinically prohibited. But there ...

הלכה - דיני קריאת התורה by Rabbi Naftali Hoffner says that after a Kohain gets an Aliya, if there is no Levi, the same Kohain must get the next Aliya. He bases this on Mishna Berura 135:28. What is done in my Shul when 2 people who are both Yisraelim need an Aliya is that one receives Hagba instead. The Rabbi himself took Hagba in such a situation and thus ...

According to Catholic Doctrine Catholics do not pray to Saints as a deity-thus it would not be considered "shittuf" as they are not joining or raising Saints to the level of the Divine. Rather, according to this site Catholics use them as emmisaries and intermediaries in their requests, and that the saint will argue for you to their deity. According to ...

Chabad's article on Tevilat Keilim (your second source) quotes Tevilat Keilim, p. 55, (I cannot find this book) that a vessel that normally touches the food may not be used before immersion even if one puts down foil or paper between the food and the vessel. Since many people do allow the food to touch your example vessels directly, it seems that ...

He does not own or rent the space and has no legal or halachik right to it, therefore he is not obligated in a mezuzah. If he wanted to put one up, it could arguably be a problem since he might not be able to guarantee its respectful removal if he moved on from that job and forgot it there. (If he did, he would not make a bracha.)

Shulchan Arukh, Orach Chayyim 200:1: שלשה שאכלו כאחד אחד מפסיק על כרחו לשנים ועונה עמהם ברכת זימון ואפילו לא רצה להפסיק מזמנין עליו בין עונה בין אינו עונה כל שהוא עומד שם אבל שנים אין חייבים להפסיק לאחד והלכך אין חיוב זימון חל עד שיתרצו להפסיק ולברך ואם לא רצו להפסיק וזימן הוא עליהם לא עשה כלום ואם לא רצו להפסיק אף הוא אינו רשאי לברך ולצאת לשוק ...

"Rav D.Z Hoffman raises the difficulty that all insects have six legs, not four. He explains that they have 4 legs that are used for simple walking, while the other two are used for jumping." (From English Artscroll Chumash) Therefore in the context of the question, the midrash is stating that if they had "5 legs" specifically for walking, (i.e. 7 in total) ...

It continues, "up to anything with lots and lots of legs", which Rashi says is a centipede. The point is that all insects are not-kosher, with the rare exceptions of a few types of locust.

Rashash (on the mishna in the g'mara) cites a machlokes as to who has to provide the location of the divider: Rashbam says it's the seller [as do Rabenu Ger'shom on the page of the g'mara, alleged Rashi on the page of the Rif, and Nimuke Yosef], while Rambam (commentary on the mishna) says it's the buyer.

Rambam writes fairly emphatically in a responsum that Torah study depends not upon the Hebrew language, but upon the intent of the words: ואין הפרש שהבין אותו הענין מלשון קודש או מלשון ערבי או מלשון ארמי הכונה היא הבנת ענינים בכל לשון שיהיה There is no difference if he understood the matter in L'shon Hakodesh (Hebrew), or in Arabic, or in Aramaic. ...

A lot more sources posted at Dose of Halacha According to some poskim (Halachos Ketanos 2:28; Kaf Hachaim OC 226:1) the beracha should only be recited in the month of Nissan, though most poskim (Ritva, Rosh Hashana 11a; Mishna Berura 226:1; Aruch Hashulchan OC 226:1; Tzitz Eliezer 12:20:3) write that one should say it whenever when one first sees the ...
