comment Lubavitcher Rebbe on the Shoah
Very interesting - thank you! Unless "1972" is a typo, perhaps it was republished eight years later? It's hard to imagine that Prof Bauer could have made so glaring a mistake in two separate articles and not have been corrected by any of his respondents.

comment Would time travel be assur/mutar?
Another interesting ramification of this is whether or not you can pasken like somebody before they existed. If you went back to the 15th century, could you still hold like the Mishna Berurah?

comment How are there arguments over how God works?
Your question doesn't make sense to me. "Unlike darshaning a pasuk, in which multiple versions are all valid, God either works in one way or another". Sure, but what if we only know how God works from pesukim??

comment Is the Maharshal's list of differences between Talmud Bavli and Talmud Yerushalmi complete?
For what it's worth, the book that you have cited is not by the Maharshal: it's by R' Menachem Mendel Hochstein. Only the final three pages are by the Maharshal, comprising a list of differences between Babylonia and the land of Israel in both custom and law. It appears to be complete, although R' Hochstein doesn't cite its source and I've not yet found it in any of the Maharshal's writings.

comment Why are tractates arranged in descending order of size?
@Yehuda - can you give me an example of this? I'm not familiar with the gemara ever doing that...

Can you please include the reference in Hilkhot Sifrei Torah?
