comment Cutting through Church property to get somewhere else
If the church grounds beautify the church, it is prohibited from deriving benefit as נוי ע"ז. Otherwise, the sole problem seems to be the proximity issue. See SH"A Y"D 142.

comment Can an ex-employee steal customers?
"Almost like stealing" is a legal level of prohibition, i.e. not quite but almost stealing. This is the psak. No evasion here.

comment Is there an explanation for the seeming contradiction in Leviticus 27:9-10?
Certainly. Do not steal, and if you do, return the stolen object to its owner. Do not leave over any Pesach offering until the morning, and if you do, burn it with fire. And many more.

comment Hard Yeshivish phrases to translate
The word "takke" I think is better translated as "indeed". Translating "in fact" to Yeshivish would yield "In emess'n arein."

comment Stipulations based on “correct” halacha vs. “לא בשמים היא”
@Curiouser, the practice (of trying to follow everyone's opinion) was especially prevalent in Maharam miRotenberg's rulings, considerably before MB.

I checked again and it is chalav yisrael after all. Somehow I missed it the first time I read the label. Thanks!

Is "Rockland Kosher Milk Powder" Chalav Yisroel? The third link you provided looks promising. I will give it a try. Thanks.

Neither Haddar nor Bluegrass are Cholov Yisroel. I had already emailed Baker's Choice, they don't sell to consumers and they cannot be found in any grocery I tried. Kosure I also heard about but couldn't find.

I appreciate the information, but this doesn't address the question, which was whether Chalav Yisroel milk powder exists. If I cannot find any, then I will explore leniencies.

@jake, the mitzva couldn't be performed with this garment without trangressing; therefore, it is unavoidable. Tosfos Kesubos ch. 3.
