comment What was the earliest use of the Rambam's language in Shmita V'Yovel in support of kollel study?
@Yehoshua that's my read as well. I'm asking a history question: today every kollel cites this Rambam; when did that practice start?

comment Marriage - am I doomed?
Plenty of people have complicated family circumstances. There are many wonderful people out there who care more about the character of the spouse-to-be than their guest list. What's really important is the kind of person you choose to be; with God's help, you can do just fine.

comment Why prefer the father to the mother?
@Yez ah, thank you. The question is whether the same conflicts-of-honor apply if one is no longer living. It was an interesting tzu shtelt. The general kaddish question is whether the parent is ordering the child to violate halacha.

comment Can one trust the Kashrut of Alcoholic Beverages in bars?
The Aruch HaShulchan had seen that too -- olive oil adulterated with strictly vegetable products. I'd agree, generally the incentive is to adulterate with something cheap, and non-kosher potables generally aren't cheap.
