comment Why is chillul Shabbat considered so wicked?
DailyHalacha.com says that the Gemara in Eruvin (69) records one view that likens Shabbat desecration to Avoda Zara (idolatry). Meaning, violating Shabbat is tantamount to the complete abandonment of the religion. But chilul shabbos is not one of the cases for which one must give up his life (יהרג ואל יעבור, or "be killed but do not transgress"). It seems therefore that יהרג ואל יעבור does not define severity of the sin.

comment How does the chazzan say “omein” in the kaddish before the Amida in Mincha and Maariv
@DoubleAA Responses to both comments. I have heard it done with mincha and maariv and not with musaf and neilah. I do not suspect it should be said quietly.

comment Can a charity employ a collector on commission without informing donors?
I see now, thank you. The reasonable assumption is that the collector is working on commission. I've voted the answer up.
