comment How does Judaism treat depression?
Don't own a copy and haven't read the whole thing, but among other things, he recommends keeping busy, saying lots of tehillim, and getting up before sunrise.

comment Is it forbidden to publish misleading advertising?
I heard that Rabbi Levenoni of Torah Vodaath tried to justify it by using an אנן סהדי (halachic Judicial Notice) that everyone understands advertisements are exaggerated/misleading. Unfortunately I don't see how it answers your question because אנן סהדי that there are people who do believe the prayer ads.

comment A rabbi asked me to light candles before weekday Mincha/Ma'ariv. Is this customary? Is there a bracha?
I don't know why he wanted you to light 2 but if he asked you to light, it's likely not because he suspected you had a yahrtzeit but because it's the yahrtzeit of someone important in his sect so he wanted people in general to light

comment I saw someone claim that, “In Zohar of Pinchos, that an Eishes Ish is לזר מותרת if her husband allows.”?
That's my point. There is nothing in the Torah proper or in Nach, nor in Chazal besides this alleged Zohar to imply that there would be any such exception.

@DoubleAA, לא תנאף and מות יומת הנואף והנואפת are pretty explicit! What you can say is it is highly unlikely that the Zohar would invent an exception to an issur d'oraisa that we don't find anywhere else.

@DoubleAA, I'm guessing they don't apply rov because of חזקה שאפשר לברר (I don't know why that doesn't apply to treifos. Never learned it)
