comment Hilchot Shchita for the Binding of Isaac
@SethJ I am asking which set of Halachoth he followed for performing a Schita in a human being. Maybe, for performing a korban in Bamot (as was the way of the Avot), less restrictions apply than in the Mishkan or Beit HaMikdash.

comment Hilchot Shchita for the Binding of Isaac
@DoubleAA VaYikra 1 clearly distinguishes between Olah from the cattle to Olah from sheep or goats to Olah from the birds. So obviously, how the korban is performed varies with respect to the animal being sacrificed. Furthermore, VaYikra 3 states the difference between sheep and goats when they are sacrificed as peace offerrings (זבח שלמים) - i.e. for Sheep the leg (אליה) is sacrificed as well.

@SethJ I brought this as an example of Hazal bringing שחיטת קדשים to the context of the binding of Isaac

comment Why do we write the number 16 as tet + zayin?
Like @jake I have also seen the writing yud-vav instead of tet-zayin. A quick search in Google revealed this from Sefer Harikma to Rabbi Jona Ben Ganach quoting from Yeshaya, Shemot and Yirmiya: dl.dropbox.com/u/9357916/SE/yodvav.png . Notice how the Rabbi refers to verse 16 as yod-vav but to chapter 16 as tet-zain. I don't really know why this is different but I can try and guess that it has something to do with the division of Mikra chapters being of Christian origins.

comment If masturbation is so bad, why is it not in list of 613 Mitzvos?
I don't say it answers, but I wanted to give a perspective and bring quotations and that is hard to do in a comment. Sorry about that... I am new to this site.

comment Why is a “leper” allowed to sit with other “lepers”?
Maybe it's enough that the leper is separated from the rest of society. The Torah is merciful after all and realizes that a man cannot live entirely without society.

In Israel all the Mesubim read the Hagadah... And the four Kushiot are usually asked by a child.

In Samuel those are the 5 Philistine cities: Ashdod, Aza, Ashkelon, Gat, Ekron. Some of them are now Israeli cities :)
