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.

I have seen a Shul where they built an elevator in the Aron Kodesh and they had two levels. At times they raise the top level up or at times they lower it down. However there all the Sifrei Torah are facing front.

comment Is it haughty to wear a frock when one is underserving?
@DanF: Although the Chassidic Rabbis wear shtreimelach, white socks and long black robes, the Rabbi's often wear a felt edging on the Beketche which differentiates them from the Chasid.

Funny you asked this, as I just saw a fellow who is not a Rabbi and he recently put one on.

comment A hungry beggar asks to use your credit card to buy food. Must you give it?
If a beggar asks you to lend him your car are you required to give it? If a beggar asks you for $100 are you required to give it? I am sure the answer to these questions and to yours is a resounding no. For that matter does one have to go into debt to give charity?

Who said the Rabbi enforces this, perhaps it is enforced by the local police force?

A.D.N. also says ואל תרבה שיחה עם האישה ואפילו היא אשתו. ואין צריך לומר באשת חברו. שכל זמן שאדם מרבה שיחה עם האישה גורם רעה לעצמו, ובוטל מדברי תורה, וסופו יורש גיהנם:

Your question presumes that a well dressed person can not be needy, which is untrue. A person can be temporarily needy.

Perhaps she did not have money on her for any number of reasons, and did not want to enter the subway illegally, however since you did not offer her a ride she had no choice.
