comment Could a Jew join Medishare?
Does the site require any active affirmation, or just states that the expectation is that you affirm? If it's just an expectation, can you join and never actually affirm halachically?

comment What Bracha for Tefillin?
@DanF The pasuk quoted is from Yechezkel and describes tefillin. The Gemara uses that description to say that aveilim don't wear tefillin, but it's a general statement that applies to all of us that tefillin==pears.

comment Kavana vs. Minyan
Rav baruch gigi (rosh yeshivah at Yeshivat har etzion) commented in general that if one feels his kavana will be greater davening alone it is legitimate to do so, but only on an infrequent basis. It should become the norm, as at the end of the day his kavana will be better in a minyan.

How do you/we define rulership? A full king? An assistant in the cabinet (mordechai)? A congressman?

comment Why does Onkelos translate “לֹֽא יוּכַל” as “לָא יִכּוֹל” rather than “לֵית לֵיהּ רְשׁוּ”
A great hebrew book for understanding Onklus's non literal translations in "parshegen".

comment How early is Torah Or in Gemara?
Apparently it was written in the 16th century, slightly after the start of the printing press but we'll before the Vilna Daf we have today. So the question is still where it was when it came out, and how it was incorporated into the daf.
