comment What did women have to do with the moon's shrinking?
דברי יציב (ר' יקותיאל יהודה הלברשטם, האדמו"ר מצאנז, או"ח צז דבאמת מה שכתב השל"ה שחוה גרמה פגם הלבנה אין לזה מובן ע"פ פשטות, שהרי הלבנה נתמעטה עוד לפני שנוצרה חוה, אבל הדברים עמוקין וטמורין ומבוארים ע"ד הנסתר ואין לי עסק בנסתרות.

comment Why don't we all do Kemach Yashan?
We do not translate the Torah without the commentaries. Kedushin 36, 37 discusses whether Chodosh applies outside of Eretz Yisrael, grain of a non Jew, etc. As you can see from judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/6644/… there is disagreement how and when this applies and many major Halachic arbitrators hold it is not required in certain instances, thus many do not keep Chodosh.

comment Can the daughter of two people who could not marry a Cohen marry a cohen?
ענין זה כבר עלה על שלחן מלכים וראש המדברים בענין הוא כמו"ר הגר"ש משאש זצ"ל שהתיר לכהן לשאת בת ישראלית מגוי כאשר נתקשרו בעבותות אהבה כמו שכתב בשו"ת שמ"ש ומגן ח"ג אה"ע סימן נ"ח, וסימן ע"ג וח"ד סימן נ"ט, סימן ס', סימן ס"א, סימן ס"ח, סימן ע', סימן ע"ג, סימן ע"ד ועוד. והסכימו איתו גדולי הדור הלא הם הראשון לציון הגר"ע יוסף שליט"א הובאו דבריו בשו"ת שמ"ש ומגן ח"ג אה"ע סימן ע"ג ובשו"ת יביע אומר ח"ט אה"ע סימן ה', ח"ז אה"ע סי' ט, ח"י אה"ע סי' י"ד וכן פסק הראשון לציון הגרש"מ עמאר שליט"א בספרו שמע שלמה ח"ה אה"ע סי' ח'
