comment What is the Jewish position on aggressive acts of war?
@JamesJenkins Is Daniel not indicating a need for further clarification?

comment How does the oral Torah not contradict Dvarim 4:2?
I don't understand the relevance of 4:2. The Oral Torah isn't adding anything to God's command. It is God's command.

comment Mesorah of Rabbeinu Gershom
See Haym Soloveitchik's essay in his Collected Essays. I don't recall if it's in volume 2 or 3.

@JamesJenkins No one should ever need to read an answer to understand a question. Please clarify in the question what you are asking.

@DannySchoemann Why would this be relevant to going on the Temple mount?

I note menstrual blood is also an Av HaTumah but for a different reason.

The Hebrew version of the WP page you linked to has a version of the same story

comment The name change of the Divrei Chamudos
I heard a story that the local king got angry that he named it Melekh so he changed it. Something like that. Might have been some anti-his-group Jews who reported him.

comment Is there a “5 second rule” for foods becoming non-Kosher?
@Shalom You may be thinking of the Bach. The Or Zarua (nor any Rishon whose name a 12th grader might have heard of) did not permit Chadash grown by non-Jews. The Chamudei Daniyel is more familiar to me at least from his famous opinions in Hilchot Mezuzah. To each his own :)

comment Forgot Atta Chonantanu and haven't said Havdalla yet before davening Shacharis
@user6591 Interesting! However, the Shulchan Arukh, Mishna Berura and Arukh haShulchan don't rule that way. Do you know of any modern Poskim who do rule that way?
