comment What are the halachic boundaries between a brother and sister?
Right; you shouldn't daven if your adult sister is standing right there half-naked. But I'd think what's required vis-a-vis davening might be different than what's allowed in other settings.

YDK -- the wire has lechis on both sides, it is a tzuras hapesach. (Couldn't you see that from the beautiful picture? :) )

Woops 30 days of habituation (over which you'll pray 90+ times)

And some say it takes 101, based on this: mi.yodeya.com/questions/3027/meya-mi-yodeya/3031#3031. There's also those who argue that it takes 90 days of actual real-use habituation, one long chant may not cut it.

comment How do you build an eruv from your house to your sukkah?
So usually I think I've seen a wire running from the sukkah (in the unfenced yard or driveway) to the house. Okay so that forms a "wall" between them, but what does that accomplish?
