comment Does a siyyum in the 9 days obviate other issurim?
Do you serve meat and wine when you make siyumim at other times of the year? Do you have live music and dancing at those siyumim?

comment Zeraim Moed Nashim Nezikim Kodshim Taharos - why not Moadim?
@ShimonbM That's a little easier to explain. There aren't multiple 'Orlahs being discussed, whereas there are two types of Teruma, three types of Eruv, a plethora of types of Bracha.

comment Why is Avraham's monotheism not mentioned in the torah?
@AdamSimon (Also note that mods are not the only people to ask. We only try and do what others tell us, and are always willing to change an action based on community input.)

comment Why is Avraham's monotheism not mentioned in the torah?
Maybe his most important achievement was actually something else. Note also that the simple text doesn't mention any foreign gods at all in those generations (the first I can think of would be the Terafim that Rachel stole from Lavan).

comment What is the meaning of this painting?
@SethJ Not necessarily. He might just think that Jews would conveniently know Hebrew and could help him with a piece of Hebrew art which he has no reason to suspect has anything to do with Judaism.

comment Saying Ulichaporas Pasha in Musaf of Rosh Chodesh
How could this possibly be? Rosh Hashana 25a: הלך ומצאו רבי עקיבה מצר. אמר לו, יש לי ללמוד שכל מה שעשה רבן גמליאל עשוי, שנאמר "אלה מועדי ה', מקראי קודש, אשר תקראו אותם" -- "אשר תקראו אותם" בין בזמנן בין שלא בזמנן; אין לי מועדות אלא אלו.

comment Forgot to say Yaaleh V'Yavo by Shacharis Rosh Chodesh - before the Molad
Even after the Molad the new moon can't be seen until after sunset. It's too close to the sun. Also note that 7:49:53.3 AM is given in Israel Solar Time so if you are in the US you're ok. (Plus the fact that actual lunar conjunction is about 3:30 AM Israel daylight time on Friday, so you really shouldn't have any issues there either.)
