comment Where does it say that one must wear two layers on their head(one of the reasons for the black hat)?
@Fred Thank you for the summary :) Bochur613 I don't have more information for you about the Beit Yosef and less about the Kabbalistic sources. I posted that in case it helps someone else find an answer.

comment Why did nobody succeed the Lubavitcher Rebbe?
@HodofHod I don't know that they explain why he didn't plan effectively. Perhaps he tried, but he was evidently unsuccessful. It's not a blame game. He certainly wouldn't be the first to not have arranged a transition successfully.

@HodofHod it's relevant to those who want to plan now for succession.

seekingclarity: That's not true. It depends on the man. See judaism.stackexchange.com/a/22496/759

comment Why did nobody succeed the Lubavitcher Rebbe?
@HodofHod A very important part of it. The reason (possibly) is not that no one wanted to "sit in his seat" so to speak out of kavod, but that they didn't feel that they would be accepted. Two very different aspects of following a hard act. The former, I think, is not well founded in Jewish tradition. The show must go on. We must have another leader, as Moshe showed in his request for Yehoshua.

comment Why did nobody succeed the Lubavitcher Rebbe?
@HodofHod Btw God's initial speech to Yehoshua does make it seem like he is reassuring Yehoshua that the people will follow him. Even with Moshe's appointment it seems Yehoshua had some doubts about following that act.

comment Why did nobody succeed the Lubavitcher Rebbe?
@Yehoshua I didn't mean you :) Moshe said it's important to have a leader even though he knew he was the ultimate prophet. That's why he asked for Yehoshua

comment Why celebrate Lag Ba'Omer on the 33rd according to the MaHaRIL?
@CharlesKoppelman Not so obvious. Last summer we commemorated Tisha b'Av on 10 Av.

comment Reasoning for doing/not doing mourning customs in second half of the omer
This seems like a non-intuitive thing to be machmir on, being only a minhag. Do you have a source that anyone indeed holds of this as a chumra?

R (Moshe?) Feinstein couldn't find a qualified Sofer anywhere in America? Where did he buy Mezuzot? Where did he get his children's Tefillin?

Another Tanach example is Yishmael ben Netanya, the murderer of Gedaliah ben Achikam.

comment Why was Chanah called an “Ishah Kesheirah”?
Why is it "Hadlakat haNer" but not "Hafrashat Challah"? In one case we take the acronym from the object and in the other we take it from the appended verb.
