comment Shelosha Ushmonim Umatayim - mi yodeya?
From the 77th day of one year till the 31st day of the following year would be a minimum of 307 days. If you add 27 days for what you claim the animals stayed longer (source please) that would be 334. So please explain the number 283.

As you can see from the last line in my answer anything is good, however the level of Hiddur is based on the list.

comment Is it permitted to have a boy under barmitzvah age sing Anim Zemiros?
I have been to Shuls where children say the Pesukai D'Zimra also. So long that there is no Kaddish or Kedusha which requires an adult, a child can say the Tefila in the role of a Chazan.

comment The Alshich and Lavan
I also looked on all the Hebrew articles regarding this story and none of them have a source other than saying "there is this famous story about the Alshich".

comment What does the aramaic “pon” mean?
What is YbU? Looking at these Pesukim I think the word immediately fits in each case. Targum is not always an exact literal translation of the Posuk. Often Targum tells us things we would not know without it.

comment Why “new-mother bat her-father” for a woman who gives birth?
The question was not why is the mother's name reserved only when you Daven for the sick, it was why in the Mi Sheberach for a Yoledes do we not say bas the mother's name, which this answers - since it is not a Mi Sheberach for the sick - as you can see from the Nusach.

the store is the one that is marking it up. The store pays similar to what you pay when you pay once a year.

I guess they closed down due to the lack of funds.

comment Shiluach HaKen: why not “Hatzipor”
Bu Nichum Aveilim the Mitzva is to be Menachem the Aveil, by Bikur Cholim the Mitzva is to visit the sick, and by Shiluach haKen the Mitzva is to send the bird away from the nest.

HododHod - I would guess Shalom might be unaware of an exclusion

Perhaps the penalty clause excluded cases of Yibum

comment Go in Peace - why are we sending the Angels away
There are certain Chasidim, such as Bobov that do not say צֵאתְכֶם לְשָׁלוֹם. Perhaps it is for this reason.

comment Why do we step before Shemona Esrei?
At times when they are in alignment, they do not allow the question to be asked, and say the quality is no good!
