comment Can someone have more than one potential soulmate simultaneously?
I once heard that the GR"A tz"l once remarked that if there were two things he could change about halacha, one of them would be re-allowing a man to have multiple wives. Food for thought.

comment The return for Beis Sheini (or lack thereof)
I'll have to ask my Rav. I thought for sure the Gemara would discuss it, or at least the Rishonim.

comment The return for Beis Sheini (or lack thereof)
So it was an error then? ;) I'm just looking for information on the subject. Sure it must have been discussed somewhere?

comment Is Christianity Avodah Zara?
@JimThio the sefirot were created by G-d, and are thus His creations, not Him, though they reveal much about his essence in the way l'havdil a beautiful landscape might.

comment Is Christianity Avodah Zara?
It would seem fairly clear to most that worshiping any person or thing, living or dead, as a god or as G-d would be assur. From my experience, it's much more than just worshiping G-d along with another being, it's worshiping that other being as G-d. (I have a bit of experience, being a former Christian.)

comment What are the issues with singing in a secular choir that includes some Christian music?
As a former Christian in geirus, I would definitely say that yes, there's avodah zara involved. Obviously, I'm biased and I don't have a source-text to reference, but it would seem fairly clear to be assur. (Perhaps another topic to discuss in this case would be the issue of kol isha.)

comment How could the numerals יה and יו be used irreverently?
Is it just minhag to maintain the tradition in sefarim which are most certainly shaimos?

comment Is there a CD containing some of the melodies of Yom Kippur?
That wasn't the melody exactly, but thanks for the link. That helps a lot.
