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

@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?

comment Was Uriah Jewish?
@user6641: To the best of my knowledge there is no issue with converts from the seven nations of Canaan or from Amalek. There is issues with converts from Amon, Moav, Mitzrayim.

comment The Chofetz Chaim's kiddush cup
@Gabi: That article discusses the Shiurim of the Chofetz Chaim in relation to other Shiurim and explains some contradictions that are found by Shiurim. I do not have time to summarize and therefore I placed a link. If one wants to read it and answer, there is information that will be helpful.

I am not sure how it is possible that Dovid HaMelech instituted this as the Milchemes Midyan was before the time of King David.

comment How old was Pharaoh relative to Moses?
According to this link Pharaoh was 40 when he made his birthday party and Yosef was released from prison. If Vayokom Melech Chodosh means that he made new laws, and it was the same Pharaoh then Pharaoh would be 259 years old at the time the Jews exited Egypt. Since Yosef was 30 when he went in front of Pharaoh, and Yaakov arrived 9 years later when Yosef was 39 and the Jews remained in Egypt for 210 years.
