My Gravatar wears the "My Dear Watson" hat from the Winter Bash.

I don't know all the answers I give off the top of my head. Many of them I search for online or use an index.

comment “Rabbi, teach me something new”
Rabbi Schwab (in Rav Schwab on Prayer in the commentary to Adon Olam) quotes Rabbi Shim'on Sofer (son of the Chasam Sofer) as asking Rabbi Shlomoh Zalman Breuer to relate a piece of Torah from his father-in-law, Rabbi Shimshon Refa'el Hirsch. That's the only thing I can think of off the top of my head.

comment How should I choose a Muktzah Klaf?
A Sefer Torah is an Avi Avos HaMuktzeh; whatever touches it becomes an Av HaMuktzeh, and so on.

comment Is there a difference between “להלן” and “לקמן”?
I heard that "לקמן" is used for far away and "לקמיה" for immediately, but nothing about "להלן" (though it seems that modern Hebrew books favor "להלן" more).
