comment Can someone who is not wearing tefillin on a weekday receive an aliyah?
Perhaps it is done in order to get people to wear Tefilin?

To the best of my knowledge there is no Halacha or Minhag that supports this policy. Perhaps this was instituted in your Shul to avoid giving an Aliya to individuals that are not Shomer Shabbos or for some other reason.

Then your answer is inaccurate, and should reflect this. In addition even if these are not an option I am not sure it would be permitted.

source that this is something one can violate Shabbos for. 1) A non Jew can easily do this. 2) He can borrow a different watch. 3) He can make sure to be on time some other way. 4) He can go to the hospital and wait there until the proper time without changing his watch.

comment Is there a source for the Kallah Bride wearing white in Torah?
Mishna Taanis 26b אמר רבן שמעון בן גמליאל: לא היו ימים טובים לישראל כחמשה עשר באב וכיום הכיפורים, שבהן בנות ירושלים יוצאות בכלי לבן שאולים, שלא לבייש את מי שאין לו ובנות ירושלים יוצאות וחולות בכרמים. ומה היו אומרות? בחור, שא נא עיניך וראה מה אתה בורר לך וכו

@msh210: I disagree obviously. I would be willing to delete my answer if you prove me wrong.

comment Sealing an envelope on shabbat
@DanF: I was looking at it as if it was peeled prior to Shabbos and the only thing being done was sealing the envelope.

comment Is it possible for a man to convert to Judaism without circumcision?
@msh210: Suppose a potential convert says I accept the command of Shabbos, however I want to (a) wait another week, I just don't wanna now, or (b) I accept the command but it is too hard for me, I can't bring myself to - would any Bais Din accept such a conversion?
