comment Why are angelic icons not prominent in Judaism?
@JimThio - yes, but that was a Divine injunction, not something that any human chose to do for artistic purposes.

comment Is a rare steak kosher?
Ya, that's the way I like it. The law of eiver min hachai was put in the Torah for people who like meat the way I like it... :)

comment Yichud in Elevator
@yydl, I'm no posek, but I'd say ones rachmana patrei. It's unlikely enough that the elevator will get stuck, that such a situation would be considered a freak accident.

comment Difference between jewish and zionist?
@Yaakov - thanks for the link, but Rambam there doesn't say they cease to be Jewish. He does say that they're chayav misa, even without due judicial process - but he very tellingly states that their children remain Jewish and we should attempt to bring them closer to Torah.

comment Difference between jewish and zionist?
That is incorrect - a Jew who sins (including "converting" to another religion) remains a Jew. There is no halachic way to renounce your Judaism once you are Jewish.
