comment Can halacha change based on scientific research?
@Matt Interesting but it has no relevance to what the Dayanim told me which to look at how the majority acts to consider if something is "Shave L'Kol Nefesh".

looks like I posted at nearly the same time as user5202. I didn't mean to take away from his answer which is nearly the same as mine.

comment May a woman with artifical metal legs wear a short skirt or pants?
If your question is "is it considered wearing" then why not include beged ish ? if you are asking about modesty then you should edit your question to reflect that.

comment Are there sources that permit or prohibit co-ed learning of self-defense?
How are you defining p'kuach nefesh ? if the situation hasn't arisen yet, or there is less of a x% chance of being attacked can we still rely on the heter (or mandate) of pikuach nefesh ? at what point does pikuach nefesh start ? is your case one of a safek pikuach nefesh vs. a Vadai lack of modesty ?

comment Why would Roosevelt have taken off his hat at a Jewish wedding?
Although no source is given the reasons stated do not seem to imply that candles are a recent innovation. Interesting question for the MY crowd though. chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/477334/jewish/…
