comment What does “שברירי ברירי…‏” do? How?
If we can be certain that the beast is imaginary, then renaming would likely be a path to disposing of the problem, unless the alternative name is, by-chance, a pronunciation of another beast that is real (and presumably drawn nearer / invited by its name)

comment What does “שברירי ברירי…‏” do? How?
I think your proposal is arguing from the way the Rambam holds. I think this should be more clear. Else, How would ignoring the name of a thing rob it of its own essence? If it has been created, then its name is part of its existence. It would see that being unaware of its name can only remove from us control to act upon this wisdom that was gleaned and passed down.

I infer that this is a Psik Reisha D'Lo Nicha Ley on a Melacha Derabanan, as per the rationale here

revised Ezra claimed that Samaritans are not Jews. Is genetic data in conflict with this?
more palatable, and attempted to soften insults without removing the authentic aggression

I have heard someone say that Hebrews are their tribe, and Jews are their people. This is in-line with the comments here. I have edited to attempt to make more descent

comment What is the Hebrew term for the drawing of the hands inward during lighting of Shabbos candles?
@sam maybe it is from kabbalah, once for each veil of light before Keter.

comment What determines the sorts of cases in which one can deliberately not know the facts?
On a small note, would it be appropriate to tag this 'shiurim'? Or not, because these questions precede the measure itself?

comment What can be done with my annoying smoke detector on Shabbos?
I heard it from someone that I understand as having deep halachic knowledge. If I could cite a written source I would ask this as a question. I would ask what activities that yield sweat are not work. I can think of 2 general cases.

Does saying something has intellect necessitate it is 'living'?

comment What can be done with my annoying smoke detector on Shabbos?
sweating is a measure that the action being done is work. Exceptions would be cases like walking to synagogue in a hot climate area, or enjoying marital relations.
