comment Does someone maternally Jewish, but without documented proof, need “giyur l'chumra”?
Is giyur l'chumra procedurally any different than gerut for someone who's definitely not jewish? (Or does it simply mean we 're being machmir to do gerut for someone who we suspect is Jewish.)

comment Which comes first, borei nefashot, or me'en shalosh?
After seeing this answer, I checked the Pri Megadim, and his reason is that it's because there are opinions that say Me'en Shalosh is d'oraita (from the same mitzvah as Birkat Hamazon), so that makes it more chashuv than borei nefashot, which is d'rabbanan.

comment Why don't we read from 2 torahs on every shabbat?
This sounds pretty much like the discussion we had when we learned this sugya in Ta'anit.

comment Sifrei Mussar/Machshava/Avodah from the Rishonim
Sefer Chasidim was written by R' Yehudah HaChassid of Regensburg, not Rabbi Yehudah HaLevy. The former is one of the Chassidei Ashkenaz, the latter a sepharadi.
