comment Does a Food Mashgiach have to Sacrifice his Life?
I don't know about the Bnei Brak story; but please don't bring any proof from any stories about fighting Communism; as Communism sought to stamp out religion, many cases fell under sha'at hashmad (times of religious persecution), in which we have to put our lives on the line for all sorts of things.

comment Do I need to use damage compensation for repairs?
correct; the absolute requirement is "car's value before" minus "car's value afterwards"; however the Shach writes that within reason, you should pay for reasonable repairs. Regardless, property is property, and you're free to do with the money as you like.

comment Law against putting people down?
It's Lashon HaRa even if it's true; if it's false it's even worse, it's called motzee shem ra. If the hurtful words are heard by their subject it's also ona'at devarim; if I just spread it around his back it's not ona't devarim, but I have violated the curse of striking one's fellow secretly (he walks in to work one day and finds he's fired; he never found out it was because someone sent a false report to HR.)

comment Does a Food Mashgiach have to Sacrifice his Life?
A community could hand someone over to prevent hezeka derabim, damage to the public. The examples of such damage are murdering or raping the whole city. I'm not sure the same would apply if they're threatening to add pork juice to the water supply. (I.e. do the same concerns apply with regards to spiritual damage?)

comment When saying the Mi SheBerach prayer for a sick amputee, do you say “for his 248 limbs”?
where does it say a woman has 252? If I'm not mistaken, the count of 248 was derived from an autopsy of a woman who had been executed.
