comment How do we know that the God we encountered at Sinai is the single, infinite God?
If the force is infinite, then there is no room for division. But your question is, maybe Powerful-But-Finite Being #1 spoke at Sinai, claimed to be the infinite being, and meanwhile Powerful Beings 2,3, and 4 just sat there and watched. ?

comment Is whisky matured in a sherry cask Kosher?
@Zvi one argument suggested why sherry casks are less of an issue than a blended containing wine -- the wine in a blended is there for color/flavor. The sherry cask may not actually be there to impart the sherry flavor, but instead to tone down some of the wood flavors.

comment Is whisky matured in a sherry cask Kosher?
@Zvi I think we're agreeing here, the same heter would apply according to Rav Moshe, though he said it was better to be machmir. It's just important for history's sake to accurately describe Rav Moshe's words.
