comment Jewish protocol towards challah
@DoubleAA yes well aware of that; but that would be no different vis-a-vis challah than a boule, peasant bread, pita, or ciabatta. I try to answer the question as asked and intended. Let's assume it's a neighbor and what goes around comes around.

comment Menstruating on Wedding Day
Yes this is commonly taught (e.g. it's in the Artscroll book) ... some rabbis feel that it can be risky vis-a-vis emotional stresses on the bride, and aren't sure it's the appropriate thing.

comment Can women pray when on their period?
As for fasting -- menstruation per se does not change the obligation to fast. Minor fast days, however, were only instituted for healthy people; if she's really feeling miserable, a rabbi could argue that she wasn't included in the rule to fast. And for all fast days, the obligation to protect one's life comes first and foremost. But those are niche cases.

comment Questions about why is wife denied access to her own property?
"Jewish Question" -- (noun). A statement or declaration converted to the semblance of a question by raising the tone at the very end.

comment What is the hebrew name verse for the name טלי (Tali)
Strongly recommend טוּב טַעַם וָדַעַת לַמְּדֵנִי כִּי בְמִצְוֹתֶיךָ הֶאֱמָנְתִּי . The others aren't nearly as nice-sounding. "Better those who died of the sword than the slow and painful process of starvation"? Pass.

comment Did both King Ahasuerus and Haman practise Zoroastrianism?
@mevaqesh other than the wearing-an-idol medrish, I would venture to affirmatively say that canonical Jewish sources say nothing about their faith.

comment Brachos on the amount of pizza one doesn't wash for?
@DoubleAA Rabbi Welcher holds that pizza counts as "pashtida." Many others don't.
