comment Does cooking kitniyot in a pot render it non-kosher-for-Passover for Ashkenazic Jews? If so, why?
Pre Pesach it is Botel Brov. On Pesach we are Nizhar on a Mashehu.

comment Quinoa Kitniyos status
1- It would be nice if the OU would take a stand either way. 2- They should list some names of Rabbi's that hold each way.

comment Wearing a Kittel at the Seder
A Kittel is a completely white garment that some people wear on Pesach at the Seder. It is also worn by some on Yom Kippur for Davening. In addition people get buried in it.

comment Bedikas Chometz - 10 pieces of bread
I think Ken means to say that a child might take one of the hidden pieces and move it and then not remember where he put it.

comment Selling of Chomez and traveling for Pesach
I would ask the Rabbi that I sell it to whether I need to leave the keys with him or not.

comment What type of Maror?
Thanks for your response, which explains the different types of items used for Maror. My question is whether people use different types of Maror for Maror and Koraich?

comment Cryptography in Judaism
The next time he came, he told them, “Please give me the sheep’s tail.” “The sheep’s tail? It’s not eaten—it is burned on the Altar,” they told him. “Who told you to ask for the sheep’s tail?” “The great sage, ben Beseira!” “R’ Yehuda ben Beseira told you to ask for the sheep’s tail?” They were shocked. They launched an investigation, and it was discovered that he was a gentile who is forbidden to partake in the Pesach. They sent R’ Yehuda a message: “Peace to you, R’ Yehuda ben Beseira. You live in Netzivin (R’ Yehuda ben Beseira’s home-town), yet your net spreads until Yerushalayim!”

A certain Aramean (gentile) who was friendly with the famous sage R’ Yehuda ben Beseira used to travel to Jerusalem and partake in the Pesach offering (contrary to the Torah’s prohibition). He used to brag to R’ Yehuda ben Beseira: The Torah says, “No foreigner may eat from it… No uncircumcised man may eat from it… (12:43,48)” yet I am consistently given the best portions! R’ Yehuda ben Beseira asked him: “Have they ever given you the sheep’s tail? Now that is truly the best portion—all else is nothing in comparison. Next time you go up, tell them to give you to eat from the sheep’s tail!”
