Why can a ChShEB"S eat less than a Shiur? Chatzi Shiur is Assur Mideoraita!

comment Targum Pseudo-Jonathan in Rabbinic Literature
Indeed it would be quite bizarre to find anyone who does think YbZ wrote it. It has some pretty controversial content.

Hi user9727. Why do you think there is such a source? Please edit your question to clarify.

comment Torah - as a source of ritual impurity
You skipped a level. Sacrifices are level 4. Tithings are level 3. Regular food 2. Vessels and people 1. Lizards, leprosy and certain bodily discharges 0. Corpses -1. (And red heifer water 5)

comment Extent of Martyrdom Requirements in the Face of Anti-Religious Laws
Exactly. You agree it's fantastical. Your tales about bloomberg are just wasting space on this page, not being relevant to the question.

comment Torah - as a source of ritual impurity
That's blatantly false on two counts: your second quote doesn't say it, and the sha doesn't say it either. Look it up.

More likely your websites are imprecise and don't mention an Iyov scroll bc it's uncommon. Nu nu...

Does anyone post-talmudic actually rule like any of those options? Why are they relevant? We hold esther is metammei. The hand washing trick works for all of nakh.

comment Extent of Martyrdom Requirements in the Face of Anti-Religious Laws
I don't follow your latter case. It's where the government in an effort to wipe out Judaism's beliefs about abortion forces all Jewish doctors (or all Jews) in its jurisdiction on pain of death to perform abortions on random women? OK I guess that's shmad. Seems rather fantastical.

comment Does Maimonides Allow Prayer to Angels?
:) I was hoping you had a source for your spiritual/physical distinction, which would answer the question raised by my examples nicely. The other possibility is to differentiate between different kinds of requests, which gets more complicated.

comment Does Maimonides Allow Prayer to Angels?
@Maimonist What about asking me a favor ("can you please delete this comment later?") or telling an animal to do a trick ("sit, Rover!") or a "rebbe" to pass the soda ("Can the Rebbe please pass the Beer Mayim Chayim?")? Doesn't that count as asking for a favor from a physical being?

Whence do you see the fifth principle limited to spiritual beings?

comment Why put Psalm 130 right before barchu?
That's an arbitrary distinction that you just made up. We do add Mizmor leDavid on certain days and certain paragraphs on Shabbatot and Yamim Tovim plus Hoshana Rabba in some places. There's no reason different days can't have extra parts. Not to mention my point above about Hallel.
