comment What is the role of government punishment in the teshuva (repentance) process?
Thanks, I didn't know that (feel free to list that as an answer btw). Okay, so if someone cheats the government they can end up paying everything back as well as serving time; I'd assume that would be teshuva (assuming remorse etc.). What happens if they don't have the money now? And how much is paid to whom for stealing from investors or a corporation?

If I'm not mistaken, Sefer Yetzira is available in English, translated by R' Aryeh Kaplan. There have been many Golem books based on Niflaos Maharal, but is there a complete English translation available?

I'm not debating that point -- plus the Vilna Gaon is said to have commented that the text of Sefer Yetzira has been corrupted. But nonetheless: does the basic description in Niflaos Maharal somewhat correspond to Sefer Yetzira (or other kabbalistic works), or is it entirely different?

comment How do you pronounce the הוי״ה in hataras nedarim (annulment of vows) before Rosh HaShanah?
Do any siddurim vowelize it? Do they leave it unvowelized so people know it's an anagram of the (unvowelized) name of G-d?

comment What are the parameters for washing after excusing one's self in the middle of the meal?
Rabbi Welcher described it as: "it's the subject of a great deal of discussion in the Achronim, but it appears the conclusion is to make a bracha." My question is according to those opinions. Thanks for quoting the others.
