comment 72 Names of God pendants
Thanks for your edit; that's much clearer. I hope you get the answers you seek! But don't forget that this site makes no guarantee of validity, and does not offer professional (particularly rabbinic) advice. Treat information from this site like it came from a crowd of your friends and bring it to your rabbi when you ask him for an halachic ruling.

comment Hebrew language---pronunciation of the qamets again
Please edit this to clarify what (if anything) it has to do with Judaism, as question not about Judaism (even if they're about Hebrew) are off-topic here.

comment Hebrew language---pronunciation of the qamets again
I believe you learned incorrectly and are correct that the first vowel is a standard kamatz.

bistritzky.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/mushky-invite.png is an example, @Daniel.

comment My Orthodox Jewish co-worker invited me to his wedding. Anything I should know about?
@Daniel, the Hebrew part is sometimes a copy of some past invitation (the last Rebbe's perhaps? I don't know) with only the names and dates changed, but not the times or IIRC location. I don't know why they do that.

comment Why did the midwives deserve such a great reward, they only did what they had to
I don't need to edit to it to my satisfaction. The one who wants answers should make his or her question accessible to as broad an audience (among those who can provide answers) as possible. (Even better, he or she should make it accessible to as broad an audience (among future readers who will read the page and learn from it) as possible, plus search engines, as a means of harbatzas Tora, but I'm trying at least to appeal to your self-interest.) I also recommend meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/q/1606, by the way.

comment Is it forbidden for a woman to mouth the words to a song in front of men?
I'm with @Salmononius2. That is, I suspect that the reason I've never (AFAIR) seen this done is that the vast majority of people have no interest in lip-syncing.

What are you talking about? What midwives? What children? Which pharaoh? How do you know they were rewarded? Please edit the question to clarify.

comment How Do I Know If it's a Hebrew Leap Year?
Thanks for the answer post. But everything in it is already in preexisting answers to this question, so this will likely get deleted.

comment What is Chassidut meantioned by the Misilat Yeshorim?
I don't have a MY at hand, but seem to recall that he devotes an entire chapter to explaining "chasidus". Am I mistaken? If not, there's your answer, I guess, to "What does Chassidut mean?".

comment No Hallel in the seder?
Perhaps there were pages missing? I'm grasping at straws here....

comment No Hallel in the seder?
Was there no indication "here we say halel", relying on people to know the text or get it from elsewhere?

comment Preparing kitniyot for Shabbat immediately after Pesach
@DoubleAA it's currently baavonosenu relevant only to Israel (or possibly people from Israel). People wanting to know about concerns specific to Passover in Israel may search using both tags. By all means detag if you think it appropriate (or especially you, Scimonster).
