comment why do jewish women wear so much black?
Hmmm, good mekor. But it could be the Shach isn't using the gemara as a source, just as a support. Once you've proved it's a colour of tznius and hachnaah, it's good even in other situations. For sure the gemara is not talking about the darchei emori, which is the topic of siman 178

comment Does a ger have to tovel their dishes?
@DoubleAA it's not MY trick. I think most people would consider R' Weiss at least as respected as R' Wosner (Shevet Halevi) and certainly able to argue with him. And the "trick", as you call it, is only for actual halochos lemaaseh, so it doesn't work against "me" for a svora.

@Yehoshua It's all in the shiur. I don't remember if he gave an exact reference or not but if he did it's in there. Also, not that R' Weiss needs me to defend him, but I don't see why you think the Chazon Ish is not saying that.

@DoubleAA also if you listen to the shiur he gives a svora why he wouldn't need to - tvilas keilim is not like hagolas keilim, there's no bli'os or anything, it's when keilim change reshus in dinei mamonos to a Jew's possession. When a ger is nisgayer there is no mamonos transaction happening, his property does not become hefker such that he'd have to do a new kinyan on it, and his keilim don't transfer reshus either to require tevilah.

comment Why does Rashi say that a hey at the end = a lamed at the beginning so many times?
+1 for a good approach, I'm not sure about the details though. 14:2 is the first time he mentions it, so I would expect a full treatment there - there's no kasha on 14:2. And it could well be there's a chiddush every time, but he doesn't spell out the chiddush - he has almost the same lashon every time. He could still just put the equivalent lamed form and leave it at that - we don't seem to be any better off for him repeating the rule. We should check how many times it occurs and he doesn't spell it out - which would fit your approach that he only repeats it when there's a chiddush

Possibly this is true, but there are many grammatical rules and none of them stand out to me as much as this one in the number of repetitions. (I could be wrong on this.) And surely it would be enough for a 5-year old to just have the meaning of the word, not the whole rule every time - as I suggested in the question

It's not just the chazon ish, R' Usher also quotes a beis meir who says much the same thing. @yoel, R' Usher was not saying it as a limmud zechus, listen to the shiur (it's quite easy Hebrew). He knew he was up against R' Elyashiv ztl and ybl"c R' Shternbuch and R' Wosner shlita, and he paskens lehalacha that a ger does not tovel his keilim. (If it sounds more authoritative coming from the name of a sefer I can call him the Minchas Osher if you prefer)

@Yehoshua If I have time I'll listen through again and do that. Feel free to edit the answer yourself if you get there first. I think applying the chazon ish to this question is his own svara, he's certainly on a level to argue with R' Wosner (he does mention the opinions quoted in DoubleAA's answer)
