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.

Great answer. According to R'Heinemann, are you allowed to keep the money that was earned by your online store on Shabbos?

"Arup" (אַראָפּ) actually means /down/ in Yiddish. No idea what the implications are for peyos...
