comment If it rains on my sukkah and I put up a tarp, should I stay in the sukkah?
The link above explains that although we do not Pasken that such a Sukkah is Kosher, since there is a Hagaos Maimonis that holds that it is acceptable, it is preferable to eat in a Sukkah with a Schlack closed, over eating in the house.

comment What is the correct spelling of Akiva?
I am looking for the proper Masoretic spelling. I think Wikipedia can not be relied on for proper Masora spelling. Gemara is reliable for Masora. Parents need to know the proper way too.
