comment What happened to the mitzvah to love the stranger as yourself?
@IsaacMoses, I'm talking about the latter, and the details are almost too general to break down. But if you'd be more specific about what exactly you want to see, I could try.

@Shokhet Not sure about dairy cows but organic chicken slaughter--yes. Where I'm talking about, they speak Yiddish. Come visit!

comment Custom of standing when a tzaddik passes by
Thanks for this answer. I would also be very interested to know the answer to @einpoklum's question--what is the threshold that defines whether we stand? Also--if we don't know how much of a scholar someone is, should we stand for him or not? Also, do women also stand, or only men?

comment Loshon hara to a therapist
@yEz You're right. But now I read that if one bypasses rebuke, one must then say the lotion hara to a group of at least 3 people. This rarely happens in therapy. What gives?

comment Why didn't the prophets (and others “inspired from Above”) ever learn the secrets of science or cures for disease?
@yechezkel Thanks, great answer. But if the Rambam was right about his explanation, then we are back at square one. Why didn't G-d reveal cures we can use?

comment What is the difference between kosher and permitted food?
Other possible examples of foods that are kosher but not permitted: chametz during Pesach; kosher dairy within x hours of eating meat; foods that one's community has a minhag not to eat at certain times (or meat when one has a minhag to eat dairy, etc.)

@Shokhet Oy, language barrier. If you were willing to summarize it or find a translation, I'd (probably!) accept it as an answer...

@Mefaresh I'm just asking you to support this statement: "But of course getting attention is not a bonafide benefit."
