comment What conditions require accepting the Messiah
@Daniel well, if he meets the descriptions Rambam describes and we choose to ignore it, why wouldn't we be blame worthy?

comment What is the correct translation of הֵילֵ֣ל?
@ahnnyoung if you're looking for the pure "meaning" doesn't the English scholarship answer fully answer your question? (Ie it means "shining one, I.e. Star) ---what that might refer to is a job for parshanut -or am I misunderstanding the question?

comment Is learning the Tanya dangerous?
@NoachmiFrankfurt it's not even technically Kabbalah, it's chasidus, which by definition (tries to)brings certain parts of kabbala into the realm of intellectual understanding.

comment “Upper Level Teshuva” for Zera LeVatala
@Yishai I've been using that! Good recommendation. I didn't see it clearly, but that's not to say I read the continuation so thoroughly. Any chance of a summary for this question, to make it accessible?

comment “Upper Level Teshuva” for Zera LeVatala
@DoubleAA that sounds great, but there seems to be a clear distinction between the 2 levels of teshuva...!

comment “Upper Level Teshuva” for Zera LeVatala
I see the possible duplicate judaism.stackexchange.com/q/62044/2246 but I feel that question doesn't adequately address this issue of upper level teshuva --how does that fit into the answer given there?

If you're going to make one that says la'hadshem, also make one that says "la'azazel" ;)

comment Which rabbis are knowledgeable about sexual dysfunction and accept Sholom Bayis questions?
@Daniel well, obviously he is interested in psak, but we can still edit the question to keep the basic question even if it's not fully what he wants....he basically wants psak based off of the question "are there sources for it"

comment Which rabbis are knowledgeable about sexual dysfunction and accept Sholom Bayis questions?
@Daniel "are there sources for allowing cross dressing as a way to enhance marital relations" and/or "is cross dressing deoraita or derabanan"

comment Which rabbis are knowledgeable about sexual dysfunction and accept Sholom Bayis questions?
I'd suggest editing the question to make it less of a personal request for psak. In general , it's a very interesting , on topic question.

comment Wearing clean but not “freshly laundered” clothes in the 9 Days
I think generally if it doesn't feel fresh, it's okay.
