comment Have recently-published allegations that Shlomo Carlebach was a sexual predator led to any bans of his music or conversions?
@msh210 Why is it impossible to answer? Maybe they wrote about it in later writings? Or a student testifies to have told them?

@Yehoshua the point is to find out if it is forbidden to listen to his music or if anyone he converted is not actually Jewish

comment What's up with this strange new hechsher?
@IsaacMoses Good news! In recent archaeological digs, they found a O-Cmon label which I think is the perfect one to adopt for their Yoshon certification: i.stack.imgur.com/8n04a.jpg

Ali, are you Jewish? What are you basing your ideas about Shittuf on?

@IsaacMoses Very well. Rabbi Neviim: Can we get the current O-Cmon labels to include the word Meikil after the word Kosher?

Rabbi Neviim: Can we get some other variants, like Cholov Yisroel and Yoshon?

comment Why do aliyos end with a different tune?
Not sure why it would be so bad if an oleh started early. Aliyot breaks are very flexible.

comment How does deep snow affect carrying on Shabbos?
+1 The same question can be applied to Techumin, which many say doesn't apply above 10 tefachim.

comment Who wears a talis on leil Shabbos?
@yoel I was only there once so I can't say very much specific, except that it wasn't everyone in the shul doing it. Probably about 60% or so.

I saw this once in the shul in Yitzhar.

comment Why does the verse in Mishpatim say Vashti ruled over fewer countries than mentioned in Ester?
@HodofHod Only according to one opinion in the Talmud. Since Elu vElu applies, you also used to be really far apart from each other.

Re eruv: if the weather is that bad, the eruv has likely been or will soon likely be knocked down by downed trees and heavy winds.

If you can find it, Rabbi Kenneth Brander has an excellent article about extreme weather related issues in The Journal of Halacha and Contemporary Society vol 64.
