comment Do you make a bracha achrona if the food you ate was bad?
@DoubleAA JJLL is correct. Also, in the other question, since you know ahead of time that the food will be distasteful, there is dispute about whether to make a bracha rishona. Here I assume the bracha was, in fact, made--implying, to some extent, a lack of knowledge about the taste.

So you're supposed to bring the Kitzur with you everywhere you go? (I hesitate to say this on the off chance it will give an ultra-frum group a new idea...)

Totally not arguing that this question should be closed...but is there a possible issue of loshon hara?

comment Does a married woman have to cover her hair to make a bracha?
@msh210 The bracha is made above water. In any case, her hair absolutely does go underwater in the mikvah.

comment Does a married woman have to cover her hair to make a bracha?
I believe the practice in some mikvahs is to give the woman a washcloth or the like to hold on her head while she makes the bracha. However I, too, have heard of situations where this is not done.

I am also interested in how we are supposed to assess for a minyan. I guess in practice people simply avoid counting out loud--but surely they are still counting on some level (unless they use hoshia et hamekha...but even so.)

comment Who developed the " symbol, to be used for rashei teyvot or acronyms?
This isn't just a question about the Hebrew language. We use the apostrophes in transliteration (English contexts) too.

comment First steps for someone considering conversion
This is a beautiful question. One thing I will say is that if you have your heart set on converting and want to become a true part of the Jewish people, you should convert Orthodox. Unfortunately many converts don't realize that a Conservative conversion will not make them a "real Jew" in the eyes of many.
