comment The Absolute Unity of G-d
א-להים (or אלהים for the profane meaning) is clearly grammatically plural, based on its agreement with plural adjectives and its declension for possessives. In all cases it follows the grammatical pattern of a plural. The Ibn Ezra I cited (as well as Rash"i, Ramba"n, Or Hachayim, et al.) understand it this way. The putative singular of the word would be א-לוה, which is attested plenty of times in תנ"ך. It is related to (but not equivalent to) א-ל.

comment Alarm clock handling on Shabbos
@SimchasTorah I have edited my answer to clarify that there is no prohibition of touching things due to shabas . There may be objects touching of which is prohibited (like the mizbe'ach for example) but not because of the day of the week.

comment Is being vegan “kosher”?
"a vegan diet might pose a problem of bugs" - I am not sure that I understand veganism correctly, but shouldn't it preclude eating bugs?

comment what are you allowed to lie about?
@avrohom Yes, I think that is what the רבנן hold in that גמרא. But far be it from me to pasken.

comment Can something be kashered by putting it in a cold pot then bringing it to a boil?
"one must be careful not to insert any dishes [to be kashered] until the water boils." Are you sure it's not "unless the water boils", which would not disqualify water that starts cold and subsequently boils?
