If you're interested in Hebrew language, there's an Area 51 proposal we'd love you to check out.

comment Kohen status of a son by intermarriage?
So does the intermarriage "break the chain" of descent? I.e. The converts children (assuming he marries a Jewish woman), although born Jewish and with a grandfather who was a Kohen, wouldn't be Kohanim themselves?

comment Kohen status of a son by intermarriage?
Just noticed this question is similar to, and possibly a duplicate of judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/16580/…

comment Does the Kashrut Authority of Australia always distinguish between dairy and dairy equipment?
It's worth noting that some brewers and wine makers use dairy products in the fining process. My question on Beer.SE was "why is NZ singled out"?

comment Is Yod a vowel in hebrew?
Hi @munteanu, I don't think this question's a good fit for this site because it's not specifically about Judaism. However, there's a site proposal in the commit stage over at Area 51 for Hebrew Language & Usage.

comment Is the name of God simply a third person form of to be?
This kind of question would also be at home on Hebrew Language and Usage when it makes it past commitment.

comment What was/is the leviathan as described in Tanach and Rabbinic literature?
Leviathan in modern culture is sometimes depicted as a giant squid. @KinnardHockenhull kosher remark is interesting.

comment Why “nostrils” and not mouth?
There are plenty of references to breath being in the nostrils (instead of somewhere else, like the mouth): Genesis, Job, Lamentations and probably more. Breathing in Biblical text seems to always be done through the nostrils. Why? I don't know, but @bondonk's comment seems to make sense.

comment May a Jew be a Freemason?
My Kabalah instructor is a Freemason. At one time, he was the head of a Masonic lodge. The requirements that he put forward for becoming a member was an adherance to monotheism.

@msh210, no problem. I have a tendency to do that on all SE sites :)

comment How should a Jew deal with Anti Semitism?
@msh210, Perhaps it is my phrasing, but I'm not looking for practical advice; my question is not meant to be subjective. I want to know if there is any law, teaching or tradition which describes how a Jew should behave towards a threat (and according to some comments, there might be one). If the answer to the question is "there is no standard answer" then that is the one I will accept as correct.
