comment If the prayer leader does not distinguish between Gimmel and Ghimmel for Amida he can't be yotzi for others
Unless we find the an exact match from Hakham 'Ovadiah's rulings, it may be safe to assume that someone heard or read this pesaq and extrapolated thereof. Are you sure your friend was specifically referring to the Gimmel?

comment Is it permissible to use an escalator on Shabbos?
Sources would help, especially to back up a big statement like "the use of Shabbat elevators is considered by many to be halachically okay".

comment Book of TaNaKhic names with their meanings
Thank you for the pointer. The book I found, however, was freely available on the Internet. IIRC, it was available on HebrewBooks.org

comment Continuing to drink a Beverage after Birchas HaMazon?
Given the utmost importance and severity which Hakham Yitzhaq Yosef SheLIT"A and Hakham 'Ovadiah A"H assign to Berakhot LeVatalah or Berakhot She'einan Tzerekhot, and given the rest of the se'if, it may be understood that while there are better options (e.g. waiting until after the meal to make a blessing on and drink the beverage), it is not assur as such to begin drinking during the meal and make a bless after Birkat HaMazon to continue drinking.

Yes, I'm pretty sure it was not called Anshei Shem. Sorry for that red herring.

comment Parshas Korach: What Was Korach Thinking?
Don't have time to compose a formal answer; but, Hakham 'Ovadiah A"H addresses this here (39:15-43:40). Basically, Qorahh, in his quest for honor, forgot the minor detail that Shemu'el was only to become great because he (Qorahh) was Shemu'el's קופה של שרצים. Shabbat Shalom!

comment How to return to Judaism if my family ancestors left it before my birth?
Perhaps the very subjective nature of the question and, therefore, the answers is to blame. Hence, the "on hold" status. I am happy to continue this discussion in chat.
