comment Difference between men and women regarding drinking water before the day kidush
@DoubleAA But many women eat after reciting Birchos ha-shachar since some poskim rule that they fulfill their minimum obligation of davening by reciting any supplication(20). They may rely on this leniency even though they are planning to daven the entire davening later on(21).

comment Contemporary leniencies regarding the prohibition(s) of new grain
