comment Chabad What a groom should do?
Your comment, maybe because it is more concise, is clearer than your question. May I recommend you edit to clarify what exactly has you confused (the apparent contradiction, and becoming a burden, I guess)?

comment Chabad What a groom should do?
Vote to close as unclear. I don't understand the question. I can't access the texts you cite, but you claim that they say that he should not concern himself with the wedding. If that's what he should not do, then he should not do it. What else are you trying to understand? I'm confused by your confusion.

comment What is the reason that the Torah uses a ן (final “Nun”) at the end of 2nd person plural verbs?
What makes you think this is "extra", and not the standard form of the verb?

comment Reshit is Torah or khalla ? Contradiction
"Let us please turn now to some of the midrashim on parshat Behaalotcha involving the word נא." That's a nice play on words.

comment “'Uf” is Torah?
OK, our conversation has led me to actually look at the Gemara in question, and I'm no longer satisfied with my answer. I still think it's valid, but it leaves open the nagging feeling wondering what the connection is.

comment “'Uf” is Torah?
@Lee, Shokhet has made a very good point about "Mayim" that you dismissed and asked for a source. You've asked an interesting question, but the premise is faulty. My pointing that out is valid vis a vis answering your question, and it should not be taken as an insult.

comment “'Uf” is Torah?
@Lee, I apologize if you found my tone insulting. But my statements and comments stand. It is not an accusation to say you are mistaken in your understanding of the Gemara (although I initially thought you were mistranslating the verse itself). I'll edit the word "mistranslating" to "misinterpreting the Gemara" if that will help. My "claim" is not, however, wild, by any means.

comment Is “tirtzach” 'murder'?
@DanF, no, it's a good Qushiya. I don't have an adequate answer.

comment “'Uf” is Torah?
@Lee, it is not conjecture. (OK, Shokhet's interpretation of my interpretation can be classed as conjecture, since he is not inside my brain; but I hereby corroborate his interpretation of my interpretation.) You are making a literal read of R"L's aggadic interpretation of a Proverbs. That's a little unusual.

comment Is “tirtzach” 'murder'?
"Am I missing something in understanding the root R-TZ-CH?" Looks like it!

comment “'Uf” is Torah?
Incidentally, it is referring to "the Torah that you learned", not "The Torah" generally. (EDIT: I think.)

comment Why begin eating with the bottom challa on Friday evening?
This doesn't answer the question of why. It recommends a method to ensure this is done.

comment Sharpening Shechita Knife on Chol HaMoaed
@Ze'evFelsen, if you're inclined, perhaps you could edit that idea into the body of the question. I don't know if it's part and parcel of the question, but it helps. It helped me, anyway, to understand why this would be a relevant skill to practice.

comment What are the limits of “music”?
@Shokhet, no, this is definitely not an answer. It addresses something not asked and promises to follow up later. Vote to delete.

comment Must a non-Jew accept the Noachide laws as binding?
So your question is really, "do non-Jews need to consciously observe the Noachide laws?"
