comment Hair Covering Before Marriage?

comment Is paintballing alowed
@Yahu, thank you, that's fascinating. My only thoughts below had been about risk of injury (based on the Igros Moshe); I hadn't considered that people routinely get bruised. Worth some thinking.

comment Women and Tzitzis
@SimchasTorah, women are obligated to learn "the halacha they need." A Jewish woman's relationship with Torah is not optional like a lulav or tzitzis. Furthermore, the bracha on Torah isn't just a standard acknowledgement of obligation; it's reminding us about the relationship the entire Jewish people have with the Torah.
