comment What did women have to do with the moon's shrinking?
If the moon caused Chava's sin, then why should women not say Kiddush Levana?

comment Why do men or boys have to cover their hair, but not unmarried women?
@yoel A quick google search yields books.google.com/… but I'm not aware of anyone who seriously argues on it.

@GershonGold If he has no Esek in Nistar then how does he know there is a deep secret convincing reason there?

comment Is “siman tov u'mazal tov” a halachically problematic phrase?
@Yishai That seems somewhat circular. It's part of the "extra" parts of Kiddush Levana which are certainly later and in all likelihood were written by people who had it in their vernacular at the time.

comment Can women be motsi Sephardic men in havdalah?
Do you have any reason to assume they can't?

So there are two nations of the world and two Yisraels? I don't understand.

comment What is the best way to keep updated with status of hechsheirim in Israel?
I know what it is. It is vague. It is only enough for consistency if your consistency isn't that consistent.

Your first example is quite different from the latter two, as it doesn't refer to well-defined halachik categories.

comment How does the chazzan say “omein” in the kaddish before the Amida in Mincha and Maariv
Perhaps you should clarify that in the question. The answer of course to any question like this is the chazan should say everything out loud always. That's what he's there for. I can't think of anything he should say silently which he isn't repeating again out loud for the Tzibur.

@Daniel That is preposterous! It would tell then to become a Noachide. Do not confuse a lesser evil with a recommendation.

Why would you suspect it should be said quietly?
