comment An Ashenazi kohain lives outside Israel. When it is not Yom Tov, can he bless the people in a Sefardi shul?
This question is about a Kohain going to Duchen, not about a yisroel going to get the Bracha.

comment Wrapping up Tefilin to form dove's wings
Perhaps you are correct. However I am not clear if that is accurate or if there is some other way to wrap it up as wings.

comment Wrapping up Tefilin to form dove's wings
Perhaps? How does that look like wings? Is this the common way people do it?

@ Double AA: Thanks for clarifying that. Now if this claim can be authenticated then I would accept this answer.

Was Reb Sholem Schwadron Zatzal a Kohain? I know for a fact that Rabbi Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg Zatzal also would specifically go to a Sefardi Minyan when he was in America, however he did not have to Duchen. Perhaps there may be a difference between a Kohain and a non Kohain.

However I guess the question remains with Jewish non religous workers.

comment Bakery workers washing Negel Vasser
rabbikaganoff.com/archives/376 Question #3: Must a caterer insist that his non-Jewish employees wash negel vasser before beginning work? Answer: One need not insist that the non-Jewish employees wash negel vasser since their touching food does not create any ruach ra.

Rabbi Greenblatt did not tell the questioner "Well perhaps you should not Daven there". That indicates that there is no problem with Davening there.

comment Why would anyone name their daughter Yehudis? The first one vexed Isaac and Rebecca
Perhaps due to the meaning of the name, both thankfulness - Odeh and the fact that in נחמיה: יג. כד. ובניהם חצי מדבר אשדודית ואינם מכירים לדבר יהודית וכלשון עם ועם the meaning is Jewish language.

comment How old was Eisav when he fell into bad ways?
Up to age 13 no difference noted, from age 13 differences were noted, yet Eisav did not sin publicly, on the day he turned 15 he sinned publicly.

comment David called “hamelech”, “hamelech David”, and “David”
There are 9 times in Nach where it says Dovid Hamelech - דויד המלך - and Dovid is spelled with a Yud. There are 6 times in Nach where it says HaMelech Dovid - המלך דויד - and Dovid is spelled with a Yud. These 15 instances all occur in Divrei HaYamim. There is only one instance where it says - דוד המלך - and that is in Shmuel2 13:39. There are 22 instances where it says Hamelech Dovid - המלך דוד - and they are all in either Shmuel2 or Melachim1.
