My lack of upvoting is due to your comment "I'm sure this is isn't the first thing for chassidim to "make up"." I resent your contention and feel it is out of line.

comment k'riah at the funeral of an adoptive parent
@mevaqesh: As I said "He does not indicate on which side it should be done for a stepparent, however being that it is not an obligation, I would say it should be done on the right side like a regular Aveil."

comment Is it proper to supply a picture of a girl prior to dating?
@DoubleAA: They do not explain it in the article. I think it would be an interesting question as to what Tzeniyus is and how is it defined?

comment Is it proper to supply a picture of a girl prior to dating?
Rav Moshe Heinemann, Shlita of Baltimore, when consulted by this author on the question, responded, “I do not think that it is within the framework of tznius for a girl to give a picture out where others can possibly see it. This is not with the ruach of Torah.” Rav Shmuel Fuerst, a Dayan in Chicago stated, “This wasn’t the mehalech for doros, and I think it is lacking in tznius. I don’t think it is a proper hanhagah and, besides, a picture can be very deceiving.”

comment Eicha - why are the Pesukim with the פ before the Pesukim with the ע?
Any authoritative sources that agree? And then the question can be inverted for Ashrei and other places where the Ayin precedes the Pei.
