comment Does there have to be a poor needy intended recipient at the time of the donation in order to be considered Tzedakah?
@Dan I am asking the more basic question, but in the case of the Rambam he knows he is giving it to an Ani, just not whom. Therefore he gives it straight into the reshus of an Ani. Here however, it is just going into his Tzedaka pile and at the moment is in the Reshus of whom?

comment Does Kiddushin 81b imply that one opinion allows for suicide if that is the only way to keep from sinning?

@DovF it happens to be true because the Poskim do say that. Because you asked for a source I replied that even without a source it is needed. Falsifying it isnt because the Halacha is like that!

@DovF it is there to discourage suicidal readers to double check the Halacha before jumping!

@SethJ The last part was more for the suicidal readers then to tell you the actual Halacha. As for your second point, I beg to differ!

Could be, but I had heard the question before I knew the Maharam. I had heard it a long time ago without any additions!
