comment Are the Jews today still waiting for the Messiah to come?
You answered "Has the messiah come?" and "What will happen when he comes?" It only barely addresses the questions of "When?" and "What kind?" It doesn't mention whether we're waiting at all except by implication.

comment Are the Jews today still waiting for the Messiah to come?
This doesn't really answer the question and also (off-topic for this site) spends time arguing against a Christisn belief that isn't mentioned anywhere.

comment Bircas HaMazon when starting to eat on Hoshanah Rabbah and finishing on Shmini Etzeres
What's the difference between this and any other bentching across time boundaries? (e.g., yontiv/not, shabbas/not, chanukah/not, purim/not, etc.)

comment Biblical significance of face veil
@ShimonbM You can ask!... Also "Biblical" is exactly the same binyan as "Tanakhical".

@SethJ Yes - it is contradicting science. curoservice.com/parents_visitors/lungs_circulation/… During the terminal sac period, numerous terminal sacs surrounded by capillaries develop. Surfactant production starts to increase significantly between 30 and 32 weeks.

comment Is Halal Meat Kosher?
Isn't it true that camel is halal, as is meat that was hunted by a Muslim (under certain conditions)?

comment Matzah eruvin on erev Pesach
@Fred Thanks for the clarification. Sounds like there's an answer in there, though I'd also want to see what those who hold that the prohibition starts at night would say. Or maybe they'd just make eruvin from matzah balls.
