comment Stoning of homosexuals
@RonP Even without that, Halakha as a legal system can only have consequences for actions. Recall לאו שאין בו מעשה אין לוקין עליו.

comment V'Lo Neivosh in Nusach Ashkenaz
Hi Ezra. Where have you heard of this prayer before? Why would you think it is(n't) in Nusach Ashkenaz? Do you know/suspect approximately where in Nusach Ashkenaz it might be found? Please edit to clarify.

comment Source text behind Rabbinic view on Dinah, Simeon, and Shaul noted in Jewish Encyclopedia
An easy to navigate version of Genesis Rabbah is provided by Sefaria. See a relevant citation here sefaria.org/Bereishit_Rabbah.80.4 An English version is apparently here archive.org/details/RabbaGenesis but I haven't looked at it at all.

I think that one source (at least) has a typo: that should be "B. B. 15b"

I have not met him, but I'm sure his food is very Kosher. That's not really the point, though.

You fail to mention that the "Dog House" in Teaneck is under supervision from Monsey because the local rabbinate deemed it too inappropriate for supervision. Makes me wonder how else you've skewed the data.

comment Drinking coffee using non-kosher utensils
@Loewian There's still almost certainly Linat Layla. And I don't know about your claim anyway. This sounds like the kinda place where there are lots of mugs and people just take one. There could totally be a surplus.

In the end though it's a chashash derabanan bc the cup is probably eino ben yomo. Plus glazed coffee mugs may have a din of glass (non-absorbent).

comment Is the book of Enoch part of judaism?
@user6591 He may or may not be correct that it shouldn't be studied, but he can't prove that from it's exclusion from Tanakh. So his argument is invalid, even if all the premises and conclusions are correct.
