comment Is there a bias against marijuana in the orthodox community?
Cigarettes cause cancer. The CBD and, to a lesser extent, THC in marijuana help cure certain types of cancer - the types with an ID-1 gene expression, such as breast cancer and some lung cancers. Just check out the PUBMED articles on the recent research(Google "PUBMED"+"cannabidiol"+"cancer"). Recreational use is one thing--saving lives is another.

comment (Ki) Ani Hashem Elokeihem
I don't know much at all about Hebrew grammar/syntax/trope, but couldn't help noticing that that phrase occurs a LOT in Vayikra/Leviticus 19, sometimes shortened to Ani HaShem , and doesn't once have the Ki preceding it...probably doesn't have anything to do with the question, but those phrases sure do add a powerful emphasis to the laws in that chapter, helping to make it a major part of the "meat" of Vayikra/Leviticus.

comment Cleaning blood from the temple
There must have been an awful lot of channels, and pretty wide ones. At the dedication of the Temple, Solomon had 22,000 oxen and 120,000 sheep sacrificed - that's a LOT of blood to drain!

comment What is the meaning of the saying “two Jews, three opinions?”
I never heard that expression relating to all Jews, just "Israelis". When I landed in Israel on Election Day a number of years ago, I heard it used a few times during political discussions on the plane, but a LOT more after landing. It seemed to be an expression of pride and general good-will.
