comment The size/shape of biblical Israel
@BaalShemotTovot A parsa is 3.5 miles making the dimensions of the Land 1400 miles by 1400 miles. Impressive!

comment What is the source for the Baal Shem Tov’s application of Psalm 122 (1) to a marriage?
Beautiful. But I heard the story as in my question at my Sheva Brochos and someone has reported it to me in the same way.

comment What do the words מְנָת כּוֹסִי mean in the hymn “Adon Olam”
@Danno So the word מְנָת will be used there as a verb? The poem seems to say that Hashem is the מְנָת of my cup. BTW, Artscroll translates מְנָת as "portion" too.

comment How to say mizonos first on an ice cream cone
OU.org says the cone does not need a brocho; it is subordinate to the ice cream. "Even if ice cream is eaten in a cone, only Shehakol is necessary, since the cone is eaten only because of the ice cream and is clearly subordinate to it. Its purpose is actually not so much to be eaten as to hold the ice cream and to prevent the hands from becoming soiled <snip> However, if you specifically use a sugar cone because you enjoy eating it, Mezonot must also be said before eating the cone.
