comment What is it about pigs that's so despised vs. other non-kosher animals?
Yeah I remember it from Little Medrish Says, but that doesn't say much ...

comment Shoresh starting with “Vav”?
I wonder if R' JD Bleich would hold you spell "Varda" ending with an aleph [for transliterating non-Hebrew] and not a heh [for Hebrew] because it's not Biblical; that's his opinion about "Ilana."

comment Shoresh starting with “Vav”?
Is it used Biblically as a verb? (E.g. tav, which in Paleo looked like an X, means "mark", both as a noun and verb, Ezekiel 9:4.)

accepted Does the vav hahipuch also mean “and”? Do all those extra “ands” belong in the Bible?

Meaning "hook", I assume? (The vav in Paleo-Hebrew [ksav ivri] does look like a hook.)

comment Can too many decorations render a sukkah invalid?
So if I put a blanket directly underneath my schach (assume the rain could get through it) -- or a bugnet -- is that still kosher?

What if it's like a fancy hanging beaded chain that is hung vertically from the schach? (Okay probably less than a foot long, but what if ...)? Does the same apply if I'm hanging lights from my schach?

comment Can a 9 year old do Yibbum?
If I'm not mistaken, if there was a huge age gap, they would generally recommend chalitza anyhow ...
