comment Is the pop-up trimmer on the back of an electric rotary shaver okay to use?
As in, there are 2 components that move back and forth across each other.

Nope. Though looking at it logically, it seems that from the way the trimmer appears to work it is even MORE like scissors than the shaver itself, no?

comment Why do all our fast days revolve around the Beis Hamikdash?
Especially since from the psukim I believe it seems that most of yehudah was actually exiled before the destruction at galus y'hoyachin

comment How do you avoid 'al tiftah peh l'satan'?
The Gemara is very big on its use of euphemisms, I seem to recall an example in berachot where they say "the downfall of the haters of Israel" to refer to the downfall of the object of the haters, but don't wish to mention such a calamity.

comment Why isn't it considered idol worship to give respect to the torah?
Why the down votes? I would happen to agree that on the face of it, dancing around an object as such seems like idol worship.
