comment Does the proximity rule for hand washing water extend to b'racha precedence?
@IsaacKotlicky If you have a source for your last part that could be a good answer.

comment Does the proximity rule for hand washing water extend to b'racha precedence?
The only reason for delaying the bread is the slight annoyance of walking away and washing. Indeed I would eat the bread right now if I'd already washed. Your question is my question.

comment What is the correct response to “Chazaq u'Baruch!”?
@nbubis 'chazak' is not a noun. Much more likely it is an imperative verb, like in the biblically allusive response mentioned in Yishai's answer, in which case it is more like two mini b'rachos with some implied jussive mood. Or, alternatively this interpretation. The grammatical exception to the dagesh following a shuruk is a different story. . .

comment Hebrew document found in grandfather's attic—what does it state?
I think the bride's father's middle name is Arye, not Ari, since that diagonal mark appears both times so it is probably an apostrophe indicating the abbreviation and not a stray mark.

comment Image of God: Equality and Discrimination
@EhevuTov Hello! 1. Can you cite a source that any of those g'mara_s are actually talking about _Adam Harishon? 2. Even in the g'mara in Y'vamos there are some laws which apply to all people although the mitzva is stated with adam. So yes, it is indeed a subtle point, but I don't think it necessarily bears on this question.

comment Looking for verses for my Hebrew name to use during the shmona esrei
Hello user9651 and welcome to m.y! What are you planning to use them for? There are many possible verses that include/correspond to/relate to your names, which can probably be narrowed down greatly depending on your intentions. Is it for prayer? Research? Poetry?

comment How did the people of Zmigrod wrap tefilin?
@Danno Separate from what? I think that's the whole question: What minhagim did this specific location have? It's localized, but in my opinion not too localized.
