Thanks. Is it problematic if a non-Jewish guest brings a gift and drives to the dinner party?

Hope the Beth Din will be understanding! With regards to bisul olam, we cook separate meals with her being a vegetarian so we don't really share meals together. I've considered the extra appliances but that's costly too... Worst case scenario, I'll have to wait until she is in a position to move out.

I don't think I have a choice but to kasher appliances every time. I can't kick her out, she has nowhere to go.

Yes, I live within walking distance of the shul and there is an eruv. I don't have a TV (still getting settled after moving) & we don't usually turn the stereo on. I only have one sink so it's already complicated. Perhaps I can try the separate basins thing? This is a relative who needs a place to stay, and I can't kick her out. I really want to convert and increase my observances but I don't want to impose on her either. She does her laundry & cooks on Shabbos but I can't make her shomer shabbat just because I am. I've sacrificed a lot for her - just want to do something for me for a change.

Ok - the women at my Chabad shul and the other orthodox shuls wore white as well. Yom Kippur publication at Chabad shul encouraged everyone to wear white and men to wear a kittel...

@JeffreyLevine thanks for the good wishes, and Shanah Tovah to you as well! I will ask the Rabbi about Yizkor.
