comment Was Esau commanded in circumcision?
@DanF, what's confusing you about the question? The comments are confusing, but the question couldn't be clearer. The OP wants to know if Esau, who descended from Abraham, was required to circumcise himself, and if his children were likewise commanded.

comment What's “פון” doing in the targum to Ex. 3:20?
Considering the importance so often accorded to Onkelos, I like this answer. It implies that Onkelos's Peshat is necessary to fully understand the Pasuk. +1.

comment What does the word “Mevoar” mean in “NaKh Mevoar”?
It might be on topic. Are you asking specifically in the contexts of titles of books?

comment How and when did fedoras arise as acceptable headwear?
"Perhaps Jewish use of the fedora is fairly recent and by then it was well-established as a man's hat..." I think that's the answer. What is regarded as men's or women's clothing changes from generation to generation, and sometimes more frequently than that. Prince Edward's donning a fedora may not have mattered to the sensibilities of religious Jews, but once it was widely worn as a man's hat, and it was seen as a mark of "proper" men's attire, it's like wearing a suit and tie - you want to look your best for prayer and special occasions, so you wear what's deemed "proper" for the occasion.
