comment Kiddushin by a man who has the din of a חייב מיתה
Is this question confusing someone who's chayav mitah (by simply committing some aveirah) with someone who had a g'mar din (the beit din rendered a verdict of death). The likelihood of being this being a question is small (because the condemned would have to escape) but the Gemara in perek ben sorer u'moreh does discuss that situation.

Thank you for such a helpful answer. I wasn't expecting to see this much effort go into verifying that the references match.

comment Commiting to a group's educational system
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about government policy, rather than about halachah or Jewish values.

comment Why is God's name spelled differently in Sefardi siddurs?
@ray: I think so, but that's only required if you know enough to do so. Otherwise you should focus your kavannah on the plain meaning of the words.
