comment The number of Challot on Shabbat and salt
Do you have a source that specifically says that it is a reminder Shabbat day and therefore, even though it is not historically accurate we should do it anyway?

comment Who distributed the zemiros across the three meals?
does this mean that if I sing Shabbat Day LUNCH songs at Friday night DINNER I may think I already finished Shabbat? Seems a bit of a reach to me.

@DoubleAA if this is true why is it not common practice?

comment Dolphins in the Sea
@SethJ except it may not have been that sea, if you look at a map that doesn't make much sense, it was probably more of a river, therefore dolphins don't follow.

comment Dolphins in the Sea
@GershonGold I don't know the source, it was always just taught to me, maybe if someone knows the source they can add it to the question. I will try to find the source.

@downvote, care to explain why? I assume it is the science part of the question, but I would like to know for sure. Thanks.

comment Height of a mezuzah and children:
@msh210 I am not sure at the age you are talking about they will take it as a message that the mezzuzah can be lower, they will simply develop the habit of kissing it. They will be able to reach the real one soon enough and will want to because it is the grown up one. I am sure the low one could be taken down by age 6ish.

comment Word for “bageling” someone as an Orthodox Jew?
@avi I can't upvote your comment enough, why is this even a question, it seems to me we should be working against this kind of thing, not promoting to it, or God for bid, adding to it.
