@Gershon - meaning, "when the tzedaka has the funds to provide him will his normal comforts, after addressing the basic needs of everyone else."

@Gershon, possibly. Rav Ovadiah quotes Rav Hertzog and others who only did 15 or 16, but everyone agrees, the goal is "until they're chai nosei es atzmo", able to fend for themselves.

comment is it ok to pour milk directly into a fleshig sink?
Not recommended, as someone might forget and pour hot water in the sink a minute later, cooking some of the remaining milk into the sink. But if milk was poured down the drain, just make sure everything's throughly washed down (with soap and cold water), and you're fine.

comment Charity recipient who doesn't manage money well
I object - the Gemara says for a fellow who grew up well-to-do but has since fallen on hard times (ani ben tuvim), you should provide him with all sorts of things. HOWEVER, it then notes that this assumes you have the funds. The question here is, when prioritizing recipients in a zero-sum fashion, can you take into consideration how well they'll use it.

comment Giving milk and meat to a baby
I would say "many" people wait an hour or a half-hour, both customs are not unheard-of. Plenty of good Jews don't, though.

comment Yotzros and Musaf for the 4 Parshios
Baltimore's old German shul, Shearith Israel Congregation a.k.a. Glen Avenue Shul a.k.a. Rabbi Hopfer's Shul, follows a mix of German customs and generic Ashkenazic practices. I believe they do some of the extra liturgy you describe.

comment Would silverware intended for one-time kosher use (e.g. airlines) need to be immersed in a mikva?
Not sure how the system works, who's buying the dishes from where. But that's very possibly the solution, they're just borrowing the brand-new dishes.
