comment Challah Friday Night
From what I've heard, yes. Atika Kadisha is a role more passive in human history; Chakal Tapuchin more active. Or something like that, if I'm getting it right.

comment Shabbos and Yom Tov menus
Yeah I've heard specifically of this as an issue (shiur from Rabbi Binyomin Marwick, mentioned in passing); not sure how it's resolved. I know Ner Israel yeshiva covers over its bulletin boards on Shabbos, I presume because of shtarei hedyotos, but that doesn't seem to be common practice.

comment What is it about pigs that's so despised vs. other non-kosher animals?
And the more it's abhorred, the more we associate it with abhorred people, forming a loop.

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?

comment Shoresh starting with “Vav”?
Meaning "hook", I assume? (The vav in Paleo-Hebrew [ksav ivri] does look like a hook.)
