comment What is the definition of death for a fish?
Fish, for instance, can be considered shecheted when out of the water, even though they are still flopping and if you put them in the water they'll continue swimming.

comment What is the definition of death for a fish?
In the sense you used it in your first sentence, 'shechted' means permitted to eat (usually based on some action). 'Dead' means dead. Not the same.

comment How can the Rebbe be considered Moshiach?
If we are allowing for resurrections to come finish the job, then why does killed vs died of old age matter? Can killed people not be resurrected?

I think you are confusing 'shecheted' and 'dead'.

comment Who was Johanan the Immerser?
I don't know why this is off-topic, certainly not for the stated reason. Can any of the close voters explain? @scimonster maybe? How is it different from judaism.stackexchange.com/q/47327/759 or judaism.stackexchange.com/q/47805/759

comment How do we get Parshot and Sefarim within the Chumash?
Indeed, just calling them Chumashim implies a five-fold division.

comment How do we get Parshot and Sefarim within the Chumash?
That article is about division of the Parshot into Aliyot. She concludes that the division into Parshot is in fact old.

comment Explanation for couple not seeing each other before the wedding?
@mevaqesh See the article cited below, for one. The better question is why you would assume anyone who knew as much Torah as they did would care about this 'custom'?
