comment Does bagged lettuce need a hechsher?
When does the Aruch Hashulchan apply? I've heard that when an infestation is found, its pretty obvious- but they're only found in certain harvests. Does that mean that lettuce overall has no obvious infestation?

comment Kabala in Halacha
The reason why we don't wear tefillin for mussaf on rosh chodesh is kabbalistic; the radbaz has an important teshuva on it where he discusses the relationship of halacha and kaballah.

comment Does G-d only hear one language?
Bear in mind, though, that all physical references to God (I.e. hearing or seeing) are euphemistic (Rambam Hilchot Yesodei Hatorah 1:9-end)

@AdamMosheh you're trying to tell me that we assume a non-Jew will convert but not that a Jew will return?

comment What is the kiss of death?
All "physical manifestations" attributed to God are euphemistic (Yesodei Hatorah 1:9). Why do you assume otherwise?

comment Saving a Jew's life on Shabbos if s/he does not observe Shabbos
we know that this statement from Yoma doesn't hold strong nowadays, because we even desecrate shabbat for a non-Jew, who will keep no future shabbatot.
