Why would this be a problem? What makes you think they would be chometz?

comment Grammatical quirk in Yoda-esque sentences
Who's 'we'? Is this something done because of tradition or because of lack of Hebrew language knowledge?

comment Is it true that there was a time when Jews believed in the existence of several Gods instead of just One?
Maybe according to some miforshim, but that's not the simple meaning of the text.

comment Where can I find a list of differences between the Aleppo Codex and Ashkenazi texts?
To clarify, there is no one 'Ashkenazi text'. A sofer can copy from any given 'reliable' sefer torah IIRC. Most serious texts will incorporate the Aleppo codex into their editing process. If you have a specific text to compare to in mind, however, this question may be more answerable.

comment Where can I get the free Hebrew text of the Siddur or Benching?
How do you know any text you buy is 'absolutely valid'? Wikisource is maintained by a team of fairly altruistic folks, can you say the same about the companies you buy your siddurim from?

comment Academic review of Steinsaltz Gemara
I found the article in tradition an linked to it in the answer. Upon rereading it I fully endorse my previous downvote because it's entirely on the perush and format of the english translation of the Gemara.

comment Academic review of Steinsaltz Gemara
All due respect to the Rav, but I'm interested in the academic perspective on history, linguistics, and archaeology, none of which are proficiencies of R' Feldman. I read the article a few years ago and IIRC its criticizing the perush more than anything else.

Sorry, but -1. R' Feldman is a profound and well known Rabbi. He is by no means an academic.
