@GershonGold I'm not misquoting the MB though. I may be confusing the source, for sure. But the similarities are still there.

comment Is it forbidden to use a sand timer on shabbos?
I was thinking more along the lines of Taboo - no writing and no spelling. So just measuring.

comment What does this Talmudic expression mean?
Awesome answer! Slight correction: According to R' Dovid Feinstein in his shiur this morning, a כספתא is a box, not money.

comment What was the first Hebrew date of the first Molad?
There was a first Molad though, right? What does no Jerusalem have to do with anything in this context? At some point there was, and then there was a molad.

@DoubleAA - Haha, and right you are. I studied this in a few places, but I was feeling a bit lazy while coding and decided it makes a good question for this site regardless.

comment Is there a hebrew term for Jahrzeit?
@msh210 I'm very much aware of what German is. I don't care about the OED. The word Jahr and Zeit haven't changed between those two evolutions of Hochdeutsch. Word usage and grammar have changed, but those words still exist. As far as this conversation goes, German refers to the several evolutions of Germanic languages represented by modern German. Don't get me started on Yiddish. Excuse me for saying this, but Yiddish is a "crowd sourced" language. If it's from Yiddish, it's really from German or wherever. What I like to call Hickdeutsch.
