comment Does a Kohen have to seek the same critria for a peligesh as he would for a wife?
@JimThio, if the Rambam says so, then he learned it from the Talmud which learned it from a verse the Torah, or an oral tradition. The commentators on the Rambam have provided a source for every single one of his statements.

comment Can a Beis Din deny conversion if a person cannot physically perform a mitzvah?
@Yishai. 1. I'm quoting a primary Halachic source. 2. "they physically cannot perform a Mitzva" would include medical reasons, I think.

comment What are “secrets of Torah” according to the Rambam?
@HaLeiVi - if you read those first 2 chapters, you will discover no secrets. E.g.: (Ch.1:5) "The planets all have a [hidden] force causing them to spin" is no big secret; we even have equations for this phenomenon. How this works? Now you're scratching the surface - and the Rambam doesn't go there. "Gcd makes it happen" is all you get.
