comment Do JONAH and similar organizations successfully help those with same-gender attractions?
I answered for both of the two options you present in your comment: 1. They do not 'cure' gay people, as that is impossible 2. Their aims are not worthwhile as "[a]t best, they are giving false hope to people who really need help accepting their sexuality. At worst they are actively exploiting and abusing those people."

comment Shakespeare in Classic Jewish Sources
The term 'classic Rabbinic sources' usually applies to Rishonim (at the latest), a period which predates shakespeare significantly.

comment Segulah for Children?
I have an answer but its probably not appropriate for this forum... :) In all seriousness Segulahs are mostly superstitions manifesting as Judaism and its better to speak to fertility experts if confronted with these problems

comment How to do Shnayim Mikra when the Aramaic Targum has multiple alternate wordings?
With both of these texts there are many more variants than those printed in your standard edition (even oz v'hadar!), as @josh waxman pointed out.

comment Are coupons for Chometz - Chometz? II
Maybe 'is there any possible halahic reasoning for this?'... Either way, thats really reading into it :)

comment Are coupons for Chometz - Chometz? II
It's hard to answer this without an inside halachic source saying it's assur. Sans that, then it's just a story , which isn't really something you can base halachic reasoning on.
