comment Is it necessary for the 12 tribes to be settled in Israel in order to keep shmita?
@RobertS.Barnes Thank you for clarifying my question. That is exactly my point. In addition, there are most likely decedents in some fractional percentage in those residing in Israel at his time that even Rambam's requirement is met. So shouldn't shmita be kept more strictly/ deoraita these days?

comment Kadosh-status of fruit grown during shmita but picked afterwards?
So if the fruit is ripe at around roshhashana of the 8th year, and you didn't have the chance to pick it but do so afterwards, the fruit maintains kedusha? Does that mean that if you have a field, you need to go and pick tons of fruit before the end of the year so that the new crop can be sold?

comment Kadosh-status of fruit grown during shmita but picked afterwards?
Please clarify what you are insinuating?? Some fruit have kedusha whereas others don't? The question is in general about fruit that grew during shmita and may have been ripe but were only picked during year 8.

comment Is it permitted for a male to have a female therapist?
Unfortunately there have been quite a few instances when psychiatrist s have taken advantage of their patients ( most often female). In instances of gynecological exams, it is now required that a female nurse be present when a male physician examines the patient. Remember that doctors and professionals are human beings and that the halachot of yehud are there for good reason.

comment Is it permitted to eat boogers?
This will cause disgust to others around and is not becoming of a Jewish person.If the person has a psychiatric problem, this is another issue... If it is a starving person, pikuach nefesh would come into play which would be permitted.

Perhaps for the safety of the children as well? Nowadays all possibilities need to be taken into account.

comment What is to be done with food illegally harvested in shmita year?
So if something (like vegetable) is planted and harvested on shmita it is forbidden to eat? Is it still kadosh? What should be done with it?

comment burning the Israeli flag
There is a Jewish star on the flag and the flag resembles a talit. There is a shame is burning the representation of the flag that stands for the land of Israel. Israel represents most Jews and to burn the flag shows a rejection of the fact that G-d allowed Israel to be in Jewish dominion(after thousands of years of foreign domination).Rejecting and opposing G-d's decision to have the state exist thusly may fall into the category of hillul Hashem.
