Yes. Here is a page from Eichlers full of Jewish comic books

Try https://www.mymikvahcalendar.org which has approbations from 7 Rabbis, 1 institution and 3 Kallah teachers. The FAQ also talks about the settings menu so it may have options to customize whether or not to take into account different opinions and stringencies. Seems to be free and is web-based, so it'll work on any computer. Caveat: That's all I know ...

Yes. It is possible to view digital copies of some of the scrolls on this website, which is maintained by the Israel Antiquities Authority. I don't know if they have all the scrolls yet, but I believe that they intend to have all of them up there, eventually.

The siddur of which your friend was talking about is most likely the Conservative Assembly's new Siddur Lev Shalem. For the longest time, Conservative synagogues have used the Siddur Sim Shalom, but they decided to switch. This new siddur has gender neutral language and they have a high holiday version for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur as well.

Check out my hebcal-js library, the perfect thing you need for this. Include it, and then you can use one of the following snippets: This is only if you will never have dates in Elul (due to a bug): var hebDate = new Hebcal.HDate(new Date(2014, 11 /* meaning 12 */, 8)); hebDate.setMonth(hebDate.getMonth() + 1); var gregDate = hebDate.greg(); // a ...

I'm actually working on a siddur right now! I have been using InDesign and Mellel (both require a license, and Mellel is more affordable). If you are using a Mac, the most up-to-date version of Pages has RTL support. One thing to be aware of with InDesign is that if you're not careful, words may migrate between lines (a problem only with justified text). ...

http://www.doubleheaderusa.com/results.asp?catid=98 http://www.headcovers.com/headwear/hats-turbans/ The first website is actually a friend of my wife's so you know, cheep plug. But she really does have a lot of items. The second one is from a quick 'head covering option' search. (Apparantly Jewish women and cancer patients shop for the same items.) There ...

There seems to be such a publication - and you can see the Tractate on Bava Metzia here. I can't figure out how to get to the other volumes, if they exist. It was written by R' Nisim Binyamin Ochana, and printed in Port Sa'id in 1929

You can buy it at MyShofar.com. You can also buy it at ajudaica.com.

Looking at your example, you can simply take advantage of the date conversion functions built into whichever library you are using. So if you want to add a Hebrew month to a Julian date, you can: Convert the Julian date into a Hebrew date (i.e. Hebrew Year / Month / Day) Take the Hebrew month value and add 1. Just keep in mind that if you are in Elul and ...

Artscroll publishes a Transliterated Machzor, which sounds like it might work for you: Rosh Hashanah Yom Kippur The only requirement that I'm not certain it fits is the "Gender Sensitivity", but it's possible it does. The excerpt page on their website doesn't show any "Gender Specific" language, and I don't have a Machzor in front of me for a more ...

If I may toot my own horn, I have an app, "Real Clear Daf," which is packed with features to facilitate your Gemara learning (e.g. dictionary, blog, note-taking, audio shiur, etc.). It's available for both Android and Apple and it's absolutely FREE! Links to the App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.realcleardaf.mobile&hl=en ...

I have frequently seen such questions posted to general-purpose social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit (particularly the Jewish corner thereof). These sites don't have the same controls for quality that Mi Yodeya does, but they can often draw large numbers of people to address a question, relatively quickly, with varying degrees of ...
