comment What rabbinic/Judaic scholar has the lowest Erdős number?
Rabbi Tendler co-authors frequently with Dr. Loicke, Dr. Rosner, and many others. Rabbi Dr. Shatz has plenty of co-authors too.

comment What rabbinic/Judaic scholar has the lowest Erdős number?
@msh210, I was focusing on contemporaries or near-contemporaries. Lehavdil, the same problem occurs in mathematics -- people didn't co-author papers a few centuries ago. The earliest mathematician with a known Erdos number is Dedekind (born 1831), according to Wikipedia.

That way the rabbi knows that what she's saying is correct for her pronunciation, and not a mistake.

comment Drunken Davening
Defined levels of drunkenness? "Unable to stand before a king" is way, WAY WAY less drunk than "as drunk as Lot."

comment Non responsibility for Damages on Purim
The allowance is whatever happens "in the course of normal merrymaking activity." If you're doing what's considered normal Purim fun with a group of likeminded people then it would apply, regardless of level of inebriation. No different than Tosfos' jousting.

comment Mattanos Levyonim via Jerusalem organazations
This is surprising. One of the commentaries on Shulchan Aruch -- Magen Avraham I think, don't recall off-hand -- says not to give too far in advance of Purim "as by the time Purim comes around, the poor person may have already consumed the gift." Which would imply that if you give it on the 14th, so long as he still has it for his use on the 15th (his Purim), that should be fine.
