comment Are raisins considered one of the seven species for the purposes of prioritising brachot?
Paranoia I suppose. :) I've always assumed they are simply dried and not altered in any other way but suddenly wondered if I was right about that.

comment Responding with “יתברך” during Kaddish
Good point! I suppose I feel like I'm adding because I'm saying something additional compared to most in my current shul although I don't know which is the more common generally.

comment What is the source and nature of the prohibition on premarital sex?
A Jewish Virtual Library article (jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Judaism/premarital_sex.html) states that "premarital sex is considered sinful by the rabbinic community" but also that "In biblical times, a man was not prohibited from having sexual relations with a woman, as long as it led to marriage. The Bible never explicitly states a woman and man may not have sexual intercourse prior to marriage; therefore, no sanction was imposed for premarital sex, but it was considered a violation of custom." Is this correct? This suggests it is prohibited d'Rabbanan more as custom?

comment Are there any practical solutions to allow carrying dog bags on Shabbas?
Many dogs (mine included) like to go while out on their walk - it's part of the value of their "constitutional" for them - and will save up for it.

Unfortunately it's not my yard where I need the doggy bags but walking in public out if my property in the street and in a park.

comment Is it permitted to share a plate or bowl with a pet (such as a cat or dog)?
Also, I wondered if there was any requirement to eat separately for other reasons. (Apart from the requirement to feed pets before ourselves of course.)

@IsaacKotlicky Good question. I suppose saliva "feels" treyf as the product of a non-kosher animal?

I should have added that the plates would be cleaned before we eat off them again and its not something I like to in the first place but in a house with young children and a dog... Well, it can happen. :)
