comment Hallel on Yom Nicanor
@DoubleAA: How do we know half Hallel for Pesach was said at that time? Arakhin 10a asks why Hallel is not said (דלא אמרינן) for all the days of the Pesach, but I don't see Talmudic evidence that there was a custom to recite half Hallel for Pesach, unlike Rosh Chodesh - the only explicit custom for half Hallels. If the custom wasn't developed by then, then maybe the Hallel list is exhaustive. The only customary Hallels would be those for when the Jews were miraculously delivered (Pesachim 117a).

comment Are these cookies kosher?
It's worth noting that the kashrut of these cookies have been approved by the Israeli rabbinate, as shown inside the marked circle. Even if "many people do not rely" on Triangle-K, the Israeli rabbinate considers them reliable.

comment Was Ankhmahor really Yosef?
I really liked your question, so I went to my university library to find as much as I could on the current scholarship of Ankhmahor. That took some time, but was a worthwhile adventure.

comment Writings of R. Ovadiah Maimuni
I doubt it. Paul Fenton's translation was published in a small press, so it's likely not online. I have it Fenton's translation of the Pool, so let me know if you have any questions.

comment How do observant Jews entertain themselves?
@Mefaresh: As I mentioned, many have criticized that particular position. The answer, however, was more broadly meant to show a source that dealt with the question and offered various solutions.
