comment May women say prayers aloud in the presence of men?
@DanF I hear you. It is a complicated issue. I was simply basing myself on the Rambam who says that it was decreed by Moshe so that we should not go three days without hearing Torah. You can see the source below: הלכות תפלה פרק שנים עשר א. משה רבינו תיקן להם לישראל שיהו קורין בתורה ברבים בשבת ובשני ובחמישי בשחרית כדי שלא ישהו שלשה ימים בלא שמיעת תורה

comment May women say prayers aloud in the presence of men?
@DanF I once heard a nice explanation for the Kavod Hatzibur issue. Since Men are obligated in Talmud Torah and therefore reading the Torah in Shul, it would be a Bizuy, degradation, for men who are obligated to have someone not obligated read in their place. It would be a horror for someone to defer their obligation. It would be also tantamount to saying that none of the men who are obligated are capable of fulfilling their obligation. This issue is not really an issue about the woman per se. It is more about the men. This is an interesting way to look at Kavod Hatzibur.

comment Does a school need to do Bedikas Chametz?
@newcomer Would the sale of the school be considered a Arama, an insincere sale? How do they address that?

@DanF Yes, but did they come back the night before Pesach and do a Bedikah?

comment Were Adam and Eve Jewish?
According to your reasoning, if a Jew wanted to keep Shabbat but does not keep other Mitzvot, he wouldn't be able to keep Shabbat?

@DoubleAA I thought there would be a difference in Bishul if you are melting something, but not cooking it per se.
