comment slander or truth abou OU Kashrus
@DoubleAA - So ......yes. My source is from Mashgichim I have spoken to, such as Rabbi Juravel, Rabbi Eisen and others. Hey gulp! I put names, not like the questioner who is hiding the name of his Motzi Shem Ra.

comment slander or truth abou OU Kashrus
@DoubleAA - Some Hashgachos would like you to believe that they are better, and that they do things differently. However speak to any Mashgiach candidly and they will all tell you that all Hashgachos rely on the OU. Yes there are those that will not rely on Dairy products as they only give Hashgacha on Chalav Yisrael and there are those that may not rely on some other items, however they all rely on the OU to some extent, and many completely.

comment Was Pharoh's daughter named Basya or Bisya?
@DoubleAA I do not know if I would go that far. Perhaps there is such a name elsewhere (Gemara, Braisos, Medrash).

comment Was Pharoh's daughter named Basya or Bisya?
What I am saying is that the correct name is Bisya, however perhaps the reason many say Basya is because of this Medrash.

comment How could a man named Philip in USA have Hebrew name Yehoshua Falk?
My great aunts Hebrew name was Sarah and her English name was Ruth. Who said that there needs to be a connection?

comment K'shaim Shenichnas L'Bris Kain Yikones L'Torah L'Chupa U'Lmaasim Tovim: why that order?
I have no source or answer at the moment, yet I would believe there is a purpose to this specific order. Perhaps I am wrong and it was only written this way to sound good. I would appreciate that answer if it is sourced.

@DoubleAA: This does not rhyme. Do you know of something that is written without a rhyme just to sound good?

comment K'shaim Shenichnas L'Bris Kain Yikones L'Torah L'Chupa U'Lmaasim Tovim: why that order?
Most things have a significance, and are not just made in the order of sounding good. Attending a Bris recently this struck me as out of order and thus the question.

Then why Maasim Tovim last?

Chronology should definitely be accounted for, and importance too as asked in the question?

comment Should the leaders of Jewish organisations be elected or appointed?
Many Shul's are opened by the Rav himself. I think every Shul can have their own by-laws and there is no one standard.

comment Whence is the idea that the deceased is a meilitz yosher?
@AvrohomYitzchok: Yes you are correct. However this is the source of the idea. As to whether this is applicable to all, I am sure as you indicated that there are those who say not.

comment Is Boaz allowed to show Rus favoritism?
@msh210: Thanks for the Meshech Chochma. However as I put in my answer, it is clearly indicated in the Posuk.

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.
