comment Per Sepharadim, is Almond Breeze permissible immediately after meat?
Not just after meat, but even cooked into meat (aside from the maarit ayin issues which arise with almond milk, which can be avoided).

@WAF if "garon" literally meant throat, you could pretty much never be hayav for something because it is a beriya-it usually wouldn't be whole by the time it gets to your throat.

comment Eating meat: when do the 6 hours start?
If its based on when you start eating, if you have a seven hour meal may you eat basar bechalav during that seventh hour? Or can you eat them consecutively just not together? Does it matter if its "derekh bishul"?

Yabia Omer O"C vol. 7. I'd post it if I had access, but I'm sure you're plenty capable of looking it up yourself. Its around the 20's (simanim-wise), addressed to his son R. Yitzchak.

comment Can you fold a tallis on Shabbos?
@DoubleAA the Hebrew clearly says talitoteyhem- why change it? Sometimes I feel like "proper yiddish" is code for "grammarless hebrew"

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?

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)

@ba (s)he has difficulty seeing this (^^obviously euphemistic^^) event as a euphemism.

but wouldn't such a ceremony increase meaning? It sounds like a pretty meaningful ceremony to me!

comment Saving a Jew's life on Shabbos if s/he does not observe Shabbos
@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?
