comment Would Muslims be recognized as Karaite Jews by Kariate Judaism
It's reasonable to want an answer from a Karaite Jew regarding this question. They are the only people who can answer this because, contrary to @DhoweedYaAgov's beliefs, they interpret things their own way. However, I believe this site is a rabbinic Jewish site and I don't think questions about Karaites is on topic here.

comment Not interlacing fingers in prayer
@Ariel Right, that's what I thought. Ok. Just wanted to see if you assumed that meant it looked better than the first version with the intertwined fingers.

comment Matzah eruvin on erev Pesach
@Yehoshua as I stated in my question: I am dissatisfied by this because that meal does not actually exist. I am also dissatisfied because it relies on two definitions of "night" in order to work. It feels strategic rather than genuine.

"It's much better than the original" - could that mean "It's better than I, the original you were copying from"?

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)?
