comment Orthodox Camps in Spanish Speaking World
Matthew, you can still use godaven.com to search for Orthodox communities; like I said, this Madrid place looks promising, or could probably point you in the right direction.

comment How big was a traditional hamentash?
@Alex, or the Mechilta of Rabbi Yishmael or the newly-discovered Mechilta of Rashbi; "mechilta" is just Aramaic for "mida" too.

NO. The Gemara says you could, Rav Henkin held that no longer applies, so you can't!

comment Heter for not Covering Hair
@YDK, I really don't know. Take a look at the full context of his responsum in the link (I only took a snippet). I know Rabbi Broyde said his definition was based on what non-Jewish modest women considered appropriate. I have heard (yutorah, I think Rabbi Blau) raise the question that when R' Moshe applied the Aruch HaShulchan to say that a married woman with uncovered hair doesn't pose a problem in shul vis-a-vis erva, that was decades ago when far fewer Orthodox-affiliated women covered their hair.

comment Is the brain the seat of the soul?
@Alex, R' Aryeh Kaplan indicates something similar in "The Real Messiah", some miraculous shifts at a later point in time of the Messianic Era; I'd assume there are Kabbalistic sources on it. Beats me.
