Doesn't the sale also have to be legal with regard to civil law? How does that play out here?

I wasn't really sure what to tag this as; I would appreciate some help. I don't think "Hebrew" is correct.

comment Raw fish on Shabbos
I think something is not muktzah if it has a permitted use to it; now that sushi is popular, raw fish has a permitted use, namely eating.

comment Halakhic International Date Line issues
Rabbi Blumenkranz ZT"L has an article about it in his Pesach book "The Laws of Pesach". He is known to be a strict authority, but he basically recommends not spending Pesach in Hawaii.

comment Can sefardim eat lafa before Pesach?
I see; you're saying that it's not matzah which doesn't fulfill the obligation, it's just chametz?

comment Can sefardim eat lafa before Pesach?
@Joshwaxman The Mishna Brurah clearly states (my translation) "...But matzah which can fulfill the obligation at night is asur to eat all day of the 14th." There the issue is whether or not it fulfills the obligation.
