comment Is there such a thing as “Veset Halom”
I guess the question is whether having a certain dream is an other (unwritten) example of "setting a veset due to occurrences in her body" in Shulchan Aruch Siman 189:19-26).

comment Prayer for when you are traveling
It's strange because according to the Pri Chadash 110:4 he agrees with Rambam that Tefilas Haderech is not said at all, and in the very next sentence (110:5) he says that his opinion is to say it only on the first day!

comment Can there be an early 'Tzes HaChochavim' due to an eclipse?
@Shmuel Brin Are you telling me that Shmuel couldn't make up his mind C"V? ALL 3 are true and they are all from Shmuel!

comment The status of Eliezer as a slave
It was Eliezer's hope and Avraham was telling him that ha had no intention of removing Noach's curse even an iota. The conversion does not take away the Eved status and Avraham did not bring it up - you did!

comment The status of Eliezer as a slave
I don't understand the question, an Eved Knani could only marry a Shifcha and any children from that marriage are Avodim Kenanim whom a Jew can't marry unless they are sent free - so why does Avraham Avini have to entertain the thought of ever freeing Eliezer's daughter? Secondly, exactly because Eliezer is still an Eved that means that the curse to Kenan that his children would be Avodim is being fulfilled!

comment Rashi on the Rif?
מרכבת המשנה ספר קנין הלכות שלוחין ושותפין פרק ח הלכה ד מקום שנהגו להעלות שכר כתף וכו'. עיין השגות, והנה גירסת רש"י מקום שנהגו להעלות שכר כתף למעות לבהמה וחדא נקיט שמעלין שכר כיתוף של בהמה ליתן מעות למתעסק ובשם עגלים וסייחין. ואולם בפי' רש"י על הרי"ף גריס מקום שנהגו להעלות שכר כתף למעות מעלין לבהמה מעלין

comment Earliest source for “Baruch Hu U'Baruch Sh'mo”
The Rokeach passed away in 1238 and the Rosh was born 1250 or 1259 that makes the Rokeach a contemporary (or just about) to the Rosh's father.
