comment Are the Aramaic root ק.ב.ל and the Hebrew root ק.ב.ל related?
I'd always assumed "kabalas panim" meant receiving people's presences.

comment Putting on tefillin late
IIRC it's a Zohar that says to recite Shema without Tefilin is like false testimony; I think you'd find the halachic discussion with regards to Tisha B'Av (whether to say Shema before mincha-with-Tefilin).

comment If someone needs to shave during Sefirah or Three Weeks because of work, should he also shave before Shabbos?
avrohom, feel free to ask your rabbi (as always). But conceptually, the practice of not shaving during sefirah is a minhag (custom), and in a specific situation where minhag and parnasa (your daily job) conflict, minhag is very often deferred. (If your job doesn't care what your facial-hair situation is, then you'd be obligated to follow the custom.)

comment Reb Moshe Feinstein in the New York Times
Many, many other libraries should have "electronic databases" including ProQuest Newspapers or ProQuest National Newspapers, Historical New York Times or something like that.
