comment “If God had not delivered us from Egypt we would still be slaves”? Really?
@Monica, actually it doesn't. "Avadim" is slaves. "Meshe'ubad" is a Mishnaic legal term meaning "on lien." Check a concordance.

comment Saving a Life During Tefillah
@Ariel K, I chose the phrase "hang up the phone and dial 911" as often you'll hear it on automated answering systems. In most cases where someone isn't on the phone (they'd better not be on the phone when davening, and now asking if they can interrupt to save a life), they should go pick one up to dial 911.

comment Why isn't “Adam” a traditional Hebrew name?
@Mechoel Zev, both Sforno and Hirsch say that some Biblical Jews' names weren't made up out of the blue, they chose and/or modified existing Canaanite/Hittite/whatnot names because of Hebrew wordplays. So yes there was a non-Jewish Yehudit long before the Jewish Yehuda or Yehudit, but so what? Now they're Jewish names.
