@Shmuel How would that be a dupe? It specifically doesn't cover this case.

comment Was Intermarriage Permissible at the time of Tanakh?
@Shmuel It doesn't, as you know. What are you trying to get at with this question of yours? The text doesn't say it, but tradition does. You know this already. Is your question what Halakha was at that time or what would we know about history if we consider only the verses of Tanakh?

comment What is the unique energy of Tishrei that corresponds to Sukkot?
Sounds like you are asking from a very specific understanding of energies and such. Perhaps you should include in your questions what specific assumptions you are making.

comment What is the unique energy of Tishrei that corresponds to Sukkot?
@AKayser We can celebrate Shavuot on either 5, 6 or 7 Sivan. I don't understand your last comment. The holiday is whenever God said it should be. If you think holidays must match with energy then I can come up with a really good algorithm to find out where the energy is... What makes you think the energy is not in Tishrei? That's when God said the holiday is, right?

What does that have to do with the energy? Isn't the energy whenever the holiday is?

I don't understand the question. Why is the energy not in Tishrei?

comment Making Shechiyanu on new Tefilin
To be clear, the MB's psak would only apply if this is your first time putting on Tefillin ever, but not if the Tefillin are just new (unless you wrote/built them).

comment Fear of shmitta and 10 year loans
@Ypnypn Perhaps, but the following parenthetical wasn't: (I have also heard this explain the idea of a Pruzbel - since Shmittah is rabbinic today, but not lending is Min HaTorah, so the Chachamim established a Pruzbel to prevent violating the Torah prohibition)

Not too satisfying, I know.
