comment Can you use an LED light array for searching for chametz?
What does "focussed" and "one area" mean in this context? The LED light array in the question would illuminate an area of say several square feet.

@Double AA The "LED light array" is a more extended light source (less focussed) than the head lamp.

comment Washing Pesach: kohanim
The text in Divrei Hayamim II 35:6 reads "And slaughter the Passover sacrifice and sanctify yourselves" which seems to mean that the slaughter preceded the sanctification.

comment Status of food fried with oil that was previously used for meat
An additional issue might be whether the "french fries that were fried in oil previously used to fry chicken" can be eaten with fish.

comment How did Moshe know that Nadav and Avihu were greater than either himself or Aharon?
The source is Vayikra Rabbah 12:2. See Vayikro Rabboh. The commentary on the side asks your question and examines a number of answers which I have not time now to understand.

comment Is whisky matured in a sherry cask Kosher?
@andrewmh20 You are right. To get the answer, we need to summarize this large article referenced above crcweb.org/Sherry%20Casks%202.pdf. I have not been able to do that.

comment Noachide Dietary Restrictions
See judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/16649/…. Charles Koppelman said “I've read a midrash that Joseph thought his brothers were not Jewish and would therefore "tell on them" for doing things that would be permitted to Jews but forbidden to bnei Noach.” There is a case of “ever min hachai that was still kosher. Jews would be permitted it, but not non-Jews. Such a marginal condition is unlikely but means that not 100% of all kosher meat is kosher to non-Jews, but in practice, it's probably fine.”
