comment Why is Jacob idolized and not villainised?
@msh210 Neither OJPS or Artscroll reads like you. Note also the etnacta of the pasuk.

If what you seek is guidance, you should ask a rabbi who knows you, not internet strangers.

comment Can a single-parent father be exempt from time-bound mitzvot?
@meir That's a huge chiddush! Is clearly not true with regards tuma/tahara, and for tefilla it would be a huge huge chiddush.

comment Why do people say that Abraham and his family were idolaters at first?
If you are looking for (external?) proof, you should specifcy what that entails. Do you want archaeological proof? Old manuscripts? etc.

You are surprised that God chose someone who wasn't always religious?

Traditionally, it's the Tur, but apparently we don't really know.

comment May a man wear a wedding band?
Plus R Moshe's position on this is rather strange. (though there are other opposers who are more cogent.)

comment Aruch Hashulchan's moon-distance estimate
@IsaacMoses Good luck with that :) You'd also need to show that the AhS saw this publication.

Interesting idea. What language does he use regarding the measurement to the moon?

comment Amen on the Telephone
This happened to me today. I was on the phone with someone located a few blocks away, and lightening flashed, so I said a bracha into the phone which I was already talking into.

comment Cicadas - once in 17 years
@IsaacMoses I'm much more interested in "Is [sic] there any Sefarim that discuss this phenomenon?" though I doubt it because it's mostly a North American thing.

comment Cicadas - once in 17 years
I appreciate your effort, but this answer is futile. There are dozens of cycles that cicadas have. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Periodical_cicada#Broods There are different groups that pop up almost every year.

@Shalom I'm not seeing discussion of synagogue or minyan in YD 239. The closest is a discussion of Torah reading in se'if 7 but that doesn't seem to really help us here.
