comment Do i have a responsibility to report users breaking the rules?
A user under 13 is not a problem for the user, but a problem for the site. COPPA says that sites can only collect very limited information from pre-teens. Site policies are written to forbid pre-teens because they want to collect more information about their users and don't want to discriminate. Therefore, a violation of site policy is a self-denial of the protections offered by COPPA.

comment Is the matrilineal descendant of a convert Jewish?
@MonicaCellio It seems like it was more of a question for the bureaucrats in the State of Israel. If that's the real thrust of your question, you should contact your local Jewish Agency and not a rabbi. They have very different rules.

regarding, "doesn't know that he can run away", that isn't legally ok - it's still considered illegal under human trafficking laws.

comment What are Orthodox arguments against Conservative Judaism?
@Fred Ok, now find someone (external to this site) who's made that argument and used it to dismiss the Conservative movement as an invalid form of Judaism and that's a legitimate answer.

comment What are Orthodox arguments against Conservative Judaism?
@Fred I didn't see anywhere that those examples cited an argument that has been made about the validity of Conservative Judaism as a whole. What did I miss?

comment How should an Orthodox Jew respond to questioning by Conservative/Reform Jews?
Those are other branches of Judaism. Do you only want to know about those three you mentioned? And why not add various Hasidic groups, too? Or, if you are hasidic, maybe you'd want to argue against mitnagdim. I'm just confused by these monolithic Jewish identities you are implying.

comment Why is every 3rd plague (of the 10 brought on Pharoah) unnanounced?
fascinating how relevant that interpretation is to 19th c European Judaism, "'you don't belong here', 'you are less than us', and inflicting pain."
