comment Intent of the 9 days and Meat
@Adam Simon, editing someone else's answer is for fixing typos and the like. If you feel an answer could be stated more clearly, you're free to write your own (using others' as much as you like), and let people vote that one up.

comment Does an Early Shabbos mean Early Meat before Tish'a B'Av?
Or similarly, if you extend shabbos late, can you continue eating meat? Though that's worse as you've now entered "the week of Tisha B'av", which is stricter than the preceding days starting at Rosh Chodesh.

comment Can G-d ever take on a physical form?
The flowery language CLEARLY WAS NOT INTENDED LITERALLY. When in his father-in-law's presence, Rabbi MM Schneurson would not lean on Seder night; after his father-in-law died, he did. All the talk about "he's with us", "he's connected to G-d", etc. is nice, but he was another flesh-and-blood human being who was no longer alive.

comment Why do the laws of kitniyot still apply today to Ashkenazi Jews on Passover?
in R' Moshe's responsum on peanuts he suggests only as a possibility that it was a recommendation and not an enactment. (Is there a different responsum where he says that definitively?) If we assume it's a neder, how can someone sick get a dispensation? And why is a minor quantity of kitniyot batel; if I made a neder not to eat corn, it would require 60x more or less.

comment What was the 'evolution' of determining who is part of the Jewish people?
@Tom, like many things, if I recall correctly it's a disagreement among the rishonim whether the Torah prohibition on intermarriage applies to all non-Jews or only the Canaanite nations.
