You cannot argue ownership of the grace period. It does not belong to you, you did not pay for it. So, you cannot practically include it in your rental, you may not rely on it. The bikelord should specify the intent of the grace period to be perfectly clear you have not paid for it (eg. a courtesy for tourists unfamiliar with the area).

Yes, you are considered an adult. (Sources in this answer come from "Bar Mitzvah: Maturity of Body or Mind," by R' Yehoshua Pfeffer. I recommend reading the whole essay for a nice overview of how we determine adulthood.) "You travel" implies that there is a persistent entity called "you" that is transplanted from one time to another. If you are persistent, ...

I heard from Rav Gershon Meltzer a posek in yeshivas Mir that if you had intention to put it back on its not called a hefsek. Same issue with repeating birchas hatorah since you intend to wake soon after. He waif at most its a safek and safek brachos lekula. He suggested to sleep in them none theless in order to accommodate all opinions Note this site is ...

Apparently only once. Shulchan Aruch Orach Chayim siman 217 siff 1. No difference is made between welling in to buy or to sell. The Mishna Berurah brings an opinion not to make the bracha at all unless he has intention to derive pleasure, but disagrees with this being that the incense are made to be enjoyed and he is enjoying them. No mention is made of ...

Easiest solution: Give your dinner host a shavah perutah before shabbos to be a shuttaf in his candles. Since you are now a partial owner, you can be yotzei with their lighting of the jointly owned candles. There are similar solutions mentioned by lighting shabbos candles when you won't be/aren't home, though sources currently are eluding me.

The destruction of the temple was in ~70 CE and the Bar Kochba revolt was ~130 CE. Even if Yehudah Ben Beseira straddled the destruction, it would seem to be a stretch to call him a contemporary of Akiva. The Yerushalmi Talmud on the story in Pesachim 3b lists him only as Ben Beseira. Since presumably he was living in Israel at the time, this is more ...

I was taught that the reason is based on the Gemara (Ta'anis 29a & Arochin 11b): אמרו: כשחרב בית המקדש בראשונה, אותו היום ערב תשעה באב היה, ומוצאי שבת היה, ומוצאי שביעית היתה, ומשמרתה של יהויריב היתה, והלוים היו אומרים שירה ועומדין על דוכנם. ומה שירה היו אומרים? {תהילים צד-כג} וַיָּשֶׁב עֲלֵיהֶם אֶת אוֹנָם וּבְרָעָתָם יַצְמִיתֵם ולא הספיקו לומר ...

The Interlinear Artscroll Siddur (Ashkenaz) has a footnote on those verses (page 227) that reads: The next three verses are not part of the psalm of the day, and are not recited in all congregations. They are the beginning of the next psalm and are recited because of their inspiring message that is an apt climax to the song of the day. No source ...

Moreshet.co.il reports: אך האריז"ל הנהיג להוסיף שלשה פסוקים ראשונים ממזמור צ"ה, "לכו נרננה" וכו', כדי לא לסיים בפורענות - "יצמיתם ה' אלקינו", כעין מה שאמרו חז"ל לגבי הפסקה בקריאת התורה: "ואין מפסיקין בקללות", וכן נוהגים בסיום הקריאה של מגילת איכה, שאחרי הפסוק האחרון "כי אם מאס מאתנו" וכו', חוזרים על הפסוק שלפניו: "השיבנו ה' אליך" וכוו, כדי לא ...

The Moshav Z'keinim (Breishis 25:27) writes that the year in the teiva wasn't reckoned in Noach's age because the natural order of the universe wasn't functioning. אלא שנה שהיו בתיבה לא חשיב לפי שלא שמשו סדרי בראשית

There is no support for slurring words and many poskim, the Mishnah Berurah among them, speak out strongly against slurring words, skipping, or mispronouncing (See the Mishnah Berurah in his opening to Hilchos Berachos and pesukei d'zimra who says that one needs to say berachos and daven as slowly as one who is extremely careful and meticulous about counting ...

The most commonly held opinion is that the story of Esther took place after the foundation of the 2nd Beis HaMikdash was built, but before the building was completed. (See Artscroll on Ezra, among others; Medrash Esther Rabba; etc.) The building process was halted by royal edict in the middle of the construction. The exact timeline is discussed in depth by ...
