comment Why must a Yoledet, a woman who just gave birth, bring a sin offering?
I guess I have a series of questions on this Gemara. Is this really true of all woman? Even if the "just in case" approach, I don't believe she would be held accountable for an accidental Shevua? Furthermore, her husband could nullify her vow? Additionally, Chatas would not be the typical offering for accidentally violating a vow, why here is it a Chatas? I was hoping for a an idea that would explain away these questions. Thank you Monica for bringing this.

comment When was the one time the Jewish people did not fast on Yom Kippur?
@DoubleAA I guess my focus is not to ask this as a riddle, rather to discover the time that the Jews did not keep Yom Kippur and the source for it. It is just obscure, it doesn't require "riddle" type of thinking. But hey, you must moderate as you see fit. =)

comment What is the longest word in Tanach?
@sabbahillel Thanks. I didn't ask about the shortest because I saw that on this link here: judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/2116/…

@Matt I would have to ask my student. I believe it was for a Yeshiva in Israel.

@DoubleAA You could label it riddle, but I know they don't like riddles here too much. Also it is more of a Trivia question I guess.

revised Does a woman do Tashlumin for an omission in Prayer?
Better...I would prefer not to take a stand on the Rambam issue without doing research into the issue. I am just citing where the position is found without validating or dismissing its authenticity.

@IsaacMoses Good question. He does quote: "כי לא נחש ביעקב ולא קסם בישראל"

comment Palm-reading in Judaism
@IsaacMoses Thanks for the comment. I was struggling with that. It would seem according to the Rambam there are no valid Torah sources that would hold such a thing. So I guess in that sense it is a response to the question "Are there Jewish sources which affirm the validity of the art of palm-reading? If yes..." So technically it is responding to the question asked. The answer according to the Rambam is "NO". Although there are positions that would disagree and say the Rambam is wrong and there are valid Torah positions that hold of Palm Reading. Would that satisfy the posting requirement?
