comment Hotels, electronic keys, and shabbat
"Leave a present in the room." It's a nice idea in theory, but practically -- imagine the 50-year-old rabbi who walks up to a 20-something female desk clerk and says "hi um, I have a present for you in my hotel room, would you follow me there?"

comment Is Jewish -Islamic system intermingling allowed in Judaism?
@narnia it starts with traditional rabbinic law as a "vote", then works from there based on understandings of personal autonomy and morality.

comment Can you give an animal a tranquilizer, and proceed to slaughter it?
@Shokhet be forewarned -- your notion of Daas Torah may be challenged. You'll see R' Chaim Ozer writing in the early 1930s that the German government will soon come to its senses and allow traditional shechita.

@Shokhet there's a kuntress printed at the back of newer editions of the Sridei Aish. (It's also on the Bar Ilan CD/website.)

comment This is on the RamBam isurei biah Chapter 15 - Halacha 25…Asufi of possible Gentile lineage?
@rudy so you're getting into questions of safek-mamzer, not safek-akum. Perhaps consider rephrasing your question title?
