comment What is the correct wine for kiddush in accordance with all the poskim.?
@annex It's nice that you have an answer to your own question. On this website, to answer your own question, you should post it as an answer, not put it into the question. If you are here to state and not to ask, that's okay, but you still need to do it in the Question/Answer format. That's why I removed the bit about red wine. It wasn't related to a question, but to an answer. By the way, adding in the sources for these concerns would be very useful.

comment Why is wearing a hijab or turbans not common for Israeli jews?
@MoriDoweedhYaAgob not really worth it. But why is the word "arab" in quotes? I think this style of dress is actually Arab.

comment Is it a popular notion that a Jew should “have at least three children…”?
I've heard this only from a friend, but she said it as if it were a common idea. I have no idea where it came from.

What if you change it to something more general, like: "Guides for religious Americans making aliyah"

comment Are we allowed to ask someone if he's a convert?
@Tim ....In that case, I think the question is: "Are you a Jew?" Not "Have you converted?"

revised Why might we think that Moses did not write Parashat Bil'am?
parasha probably meant Masoretic parshiyot, not our parsiyot, in which case there's a break after 24:25. And 25:1 starts the story of Pinchas, so it's clearly not parashat Bilaam
