comment What dress is expected at a post-service event in a synagogue?
Wouldn't "respect and reverence for the synagogue and proper behavior" mean dressing modestly even if doesn't aplly to you?

comment Instances where women wore tefillin
Would like to add regarding this question, if a woman did put tefillin, would she also put it on during Shabbat?

comment Is there a mitzvah to escort a non-Jew?
Kidush-hashaem? By the way, I did that once to a couple and they told me "God bless you". I'm pretty sure they were christian, would that be a problem of "ושם אלהים אחרים לא תזכירו לא ישמע על פיך" ?

comment is emuna supposed to be blind faith?
I actually have quite alot (but not near me atm). The point is, BOTH are correct, each has its pros and cons.For example, if you don't have any 'blindfaith' at all, and you didn't manage to effactivly 'understand' emuna, what are you suppose to believe in/how do you live in the meantime ?

Blind faith can also be considered Emuna. @ray check Chovat halevavot. I might be able to bring sources by weekend.

comment man is greater than an angel
I believe a common source is Zechariah 3 7 Try reading Sichat Malachei Hasharet IIRC, R' Tzadok explains angels might be 'better' in terms of materialistic existance but the 'soul' given to humans (jews) is of much higher 'quality'.

comment Did people who were not priests ever enter the Tabernacle?
Regadring people who entered inner places - Uzziah Chronicles 26,16+ Ezrat Nashim--Ezrat Israel--Ezrat Cohanim--U'lam--Heicahl--Kodesh Hakodashim. Israelites were allowed to enter up to Ezrat Israel (Women up to Ezrat Nashim) A little hard for me with translation, does 'Tabernacle' refer to the object or area?

comment Other Major Jewish Books Whose Authorship is in Dispute beside the Zohar
It is pretty much proven there it cannot be the Ra'ah and probably one of Rashba's students. In general, later disputes arise from lack of sources to compare, the old ones simply have hardly anything to rely on

comment May one go on a fishing trip during Hol Hamo'ed Pesach where chametz is used as bait?
(Self link translation) "However, there is a difference between Chametz 'mamash' such as bread and Chametz mixture. The former cannot remain under your possesion unless it is inedible for even dogs. The latter may reamin during Pesach as long as it is inedible for humans. Check Shulchan Aroch Siman 442 Seif 4. Moreover, you may use Chametz mixture. See also Rishonim in Beit Yosef(same siman) and Rambam (Chapter 4, Halacha 8) ". I advise reading the link.

See halachayomit.co.il/Default.asp?HalachaID=2469, in the one-before-last part it explains it is allowed to use fish food. P.s noticed the question, sorry

But fish food is not proper for humans, if it was made before pesach that you may enjoy it, not eat it. @DanF Are you sure it is pure Chanetz, Chamets and Chamets mixture have different dinim

comment Why don't we care if the Pesach pilgrims get rained on?
When you have something to expect to, you don't feel down. To Jerusalem = Happy even if it rains From jerusalem = Feeling down if it rains
