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.

comment והוא ידרוש לציון עיר ה…‏
Not sure that the verse is citing the appellation "Nidacha" with approval; on the contrary, it seems to be bemoaning the fact that people have pushed Tzion from their minds and are not inquiring after it.

comment What is the “Kos Shel Ikrin,” a potion that renders one infertile?
See the Tosfos I cited, where they hold there was a sufficient degree of certainty, although there may have been rare exceptions. Besides, many things w.r.t. biology were different pre-Mabul.

@Shalom, if there was significant risk to life, it would have been prohibited on those grounds. The Talmud in Shabbos only discusses the "Sirus" problem, and some hold that women may take it. But it is possible that a person would become weaker or otherwise impaired.
