comment Yichud with a transgender person?
@ephraimhelfgot - Sexual attraction has nothing to do with it. If you consider yourself forbidden to be in yichud with a permitted woman, that surely takes effect regardless of whether or not you are attracted to her.

comment Yichud with a transgender person?
I think it is worth also exploring the counterpart: can she be in yichud with other women?

comment 176 verses in longest parasha, longest psalm and last page of longest Talmud tractate - what is the significance?
FYI, Bava Batra is considerably shorter than Berakhot, but while the former has innumerable tosafot, the latter has virtually none.

@DoubleAA - I'm not seeing that, but I'll check after Shabbos from an actual computer. Thanks! Shabbat shalom.

comment The Impurity of Teeth
@DoubleAA - where are you seeing that? Looking at that website, I'm only seeing substantiation of the idea that teeth are fully formed by the time the baby is born...

comment Not knowing a Halacha
This is a very useful answer, but it would be a lot better if you provided at least one source for each of those principles.

comment Where can one learn the grammatical functions of the te'amim
Thanks for the recommendation - I'll check that out! Interested parties might also consider Mordekhai Breuer's Ta'amei haMiqra (in Hebrew) and Israel Yeivin's Introduction to the Tiberian Masorah. Neither of those present charts or exercises, but Yeivin's is a good reference work on its own.
