comment Best practices for praying in public with talit and tefilin
R David Yosef in Halacha Berura has a great suggestion for not freaking out non-Jews with your tefillin: cover them with your talit! (He really lives in E Israel!)

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?

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.
