comment Sefardim don't ever listen to live music?
B'nei S'farad aside, there is a g'mara that says we stopped playing music when the mikdash was destroyed.

comment What does Mot Umat mean?
I don't see it. I think we might be talking about two different things. But I guess if I really want the issue addressed I'll put it in a separate question.

comment What does Mot Umat mean?
To your first point, "die" vs. "deaded" doesn't bother me since death events' activeness inherently don't align grammatically and realistically. Given that the infinitive absolute "mos" frames the cognate accusative "yumas" in a way we simply don't do in English I can see altering it somehow strictly in the interest of precision to distinguish from "yumas" alone. "Death he shall die" perhaps, or even "dead he shall be deaded", but the addition of "surely" seems like an overstatement.

Do you have a source for "he shall surely die" being a translation?

comment Giving to a “mission” collection
@Yishai I don't think it's a duplicate because this question is about supporting the act of collecting as a meritorious act, independent of its goal or purpose. I think it's an interesting distinction.

comment Is there anything halachically or hashkafically wrong with installing reference computers in a Bet Midrash?
It sounds like the spiritual rav you spoke to might have an interesting answer to this. Did you press him on it?
