Mbloch, i imagine there are different types of enjoyment according to chazal. Then again, some people pay $110 for a bottle of wine, so im not sure the enjoyment is the wine itself these days. What i mean is, most people arent going to fancy restaurant just for the food in of itself. The ambiance, the whole being taken care of, the getting out, etc. All go ...

I found this: משנה. מי שהיה עבד או אשה או קטן מקרין אותו – עונה אחריהן מה שהן אומרין, ותבא לו מאירה. אם היה גדול מקרא אותו – עונה אחריו הללויה, מקום שנהגו לכפול – יכפול, לפשוט – יפשוט, לברך – יברך, הכל כמנהג המדינה. One who has a slave, a woman, or a minor read [the Hallel] to him, he must repeat after them what they say, and a curse be ...

According to wikipedia, Zt"l is used for men as well as women. If I recall correctly, when Rebetzin Kamenetzki, wife of Rav Binyamin Kamenetzki died, about 4 months ago, many of the local articles and newspapers referred to her using Zt"l. Perhaps, a Chaba"d-nick can verify if this term is used regarding Rebbetzin Chaya Schneerson.

In Maharal language I think you would say men are tzurah, women are chomer. Leadership is the provision of tzurah to the klal so cannot be provided by women unless they become masculine to some extent which is a perversion of their natural order.

There are many interpretations, some not even about women. Here are two opposing views about women and wisdom. Rashi (referencing Vayikra Rabba 2:1) understands the passage to mean that if it's so hard to find a single man wise enough to teach Gemara, then one should be particularly cautious with women: אדם אחד מאלף מצאתי - בנוהג שבעולם אלף נכנסים ...

I have seen the rabbanith in Manhattan's Tifereth Israel with a radid, and it was a beautiful sheer or lace veil that was cascading down her back and very wide. It was feminine and had almost (but not quite) a bridal quality to it, but still clearly not a wedding veil. It was also the only time I saw her, and I looked it up and that was how I learned about ...

It would have been easy to answer according to Rashi in Ki Sisa 32 2 who says the reason Aharon told the men to take the jewelry from their wives and children was because he knew the women and children would not easily part with their beloved jewelry, and he was looking to stall the men. From this we could have said the action, or inaction of the women was ...

The Ethiopian Beta Israel community had a tradition of female circumcision. i don't know if there was a celebration marking the occassion, or ...

The answer to that question is more difficult than appears at first glance. One might have be said "gloves for snakes? combs for hairless?" One of the assumptions made by the question is that Brit milah is a supplement. If it is lacking, this is an under privilege. But following the Rambam (the Guide for the Perplexes III, 49), it is as a quasi-amputation. ...

There actually is a naming ceremony for girls, called zeved habat. Zeved is a gift (cf. Lea's naming of Zevulun in Bereshit 30:20). It is a way to express' parents hakarat hatov (gratitude) to God for the gift of a girl. This is quite common in Sephardic communities in France (personal experience) and surely elsewhere as well. There is a traditional prayer ...
