comment Punishment for Polygamy
No one has to abide by R' Gershom's decree that was apparently "accepted by all". He can't make asur what is mutar by Torah/halakha, bar none. If a community wants to put someone in herem for it, go ahead. I never said they couldn't. That would just be absurd, that's all.

comment Extra yud in Yerushalaim
@avi I'm not sure, I haven't noticed. IsaacMoses As far as I remember, every time I see it in the Tanakh, it is without a second yud; whereas everywhere else I see it, it is with. Is there anything needed beyond just the fact that it never seems to appear with a second yud in the Tanakh (to my recollection)?

comment Performing miracles with Hashem's Name
Interesting how my comment is marked down. This shows the state status of the Jewish people in general, who have lost a total aspect of their culture as a result of persecution in galut. The sad part is, hardly anyone wants to return to lost originality. They'd rather just do what their families and communities are doing. That's very sad to me.

HodofHod, I am indeed referring to Abir, and I've known the Aluf Abir personally for a while.

comment Walled from the times of Joshua: Why Joshua?
The halakha is more accurately a city that was walled in the times of Yehoshua whether or not it is walled still today; and a walled city today does not apply had it not been walled in the times of Yehoshua.

WAF, thanks for the welcome. I think just the fact that the Pope and other Catholic clergy sometimes wear a cap that mostly or completely resembles a kipa. There is also the white-shirt, black coat classic Catholic attire; sometimes I have seen it combined also with a black hat resembling a super.
