comment Unintentional Tosefes Shabbos
the scenario in my comment is an extension, depending on the answer to the questions as asked (whether one needs to have a specific type of kavannah within a larger kavannah)

comment Unintentional Tosefes Shabbos
@Yishai that's part of question two, whether it is a progressively increasing mitzvah. But if I misprint in the bulletin that CLT is 7:43 and my wife is late and lights at 8:01, she THINKS that she no longer gets tosefes shabbos and only the kavannah of shabbos, but in truth I have secured tosefes shabbos for her because in truth she is still 18 minutes early!

comment What is the source for the prohibition on marrying gentiles?
@user6591 Sorry if I'm being dense but that would mean that the question asks not about marriage but about sex. The gemara seems to equate them. I'm not sure the questioner does.

comment What is the source for the prohibition on marrying gentiles?
I am not sure what you mean by "marry" -- a Jew CAN (not ("may") not marry a non-Jew because there can be no kiddushin as far as I understand it. Are you asking why that is, or why something else is forbidden?

comment Trying to understand “Dairy on Shavuos based on the Mishna Berura”
No source is provided, but the halacha yomit email I received seems to say that they specifically ate milchigs on that day "The Mishna Berurah provides another reason for the milchigs. Included in the Aseres Hadibros that Klal Yisrael heard on Shavuos morning, were components of the complete Torah. When the Yidden returned home after Matan Torah, there was not enough time for them to kasher meat in accordance with the many halachos that they had just learned. Therefore, they opted to eat milchigs. Today, we eat milchigs as a reminder of the meal Bnei Yisroel ate that day."

comment Is it wrong to ask for financial help after a personal loss?
@GershonGold I haven't seen many gofundme sites (especially not with approbations attached). If it works, then best of luck. This is why I am not sure if the question is asking about religious or just social propriety.
