A shin is me'akev, even according to Rambam. See Hilchot sta"m 3:1-2 mechon-mamre.org/i/23.htm

comment What is this parsha about Haman and why should I read it daily?
I know it's not very purimdik but I always check up on suspiciously large numbers in frum articles. I got 25.3 tons of silver according to the small shiur, and why would someone like haman follow the chazon ish?!

comment Logic behind Targum of בא
Mine say נ"א for נוסח אחר, never seen נ"י in that context. Just a thought, but it might follow a similar pattern to אזל vs. הלך as translations for וילך

Why do you assume the version in parentheses is older?

comment Where can I buy kosher Tefillin scrolls?
@msh210 The fraud referenced has been going on for a while. It's mentioned in Mishnah Berurah (yes, even in the first edition) so it's not exactly current

My observation. I put it after the citation so people wouldn't think it's part of the gemara.

comment Notched 2x4 for maamid?
What if the notch was made as half of a half-lap joint? It is literally being made to be mekabel the other piece of wood. Does a beis kibul have to be something that holds liquid?

@DoubleAA Every Hebrew language textbook (as opposed to dikduk sefer) that I've seen calls it a chirik gadol. HaYesod comes to mind.

comment What does the blue color mean in Judaism?
@MichaBerger Ashkenazim seem to have had blue stripes on their tallesim for a while. Belzer chasidim still do but they're embarrassed to have a minhag that makes them look Zionist so they use a very dark shade of blue that is indistinguishable from black unless you look close.

comment Can a section of the Torah be “cut and pasted”?
One is allowed to scratch out words to make corrections in a sefer torah. The issue is about replacing part of a yeriah. That will wait till tonight when I can look up the Kesset.
