comment Hanging the kesubah on the wall?
@SethJ judaism.stackexchange.com/a/16331/759 Moreover it's not actually for her protection because even if she can't find her ketuva at the end of a marriage we assume she had one and pay her the money.

Do you mean land or chattel or both?

Keeping the Ketuba safe is important even during the marriage, as the husband and wife are forbidden to each other if she doesn't know that it is safe.

@Danield As you can see in the linked question, sometimes the Gemara does seem to say the words were just written stam.

Victor Grazi, welcome to Mi Yodeya and thank you for contributing this interesting question! Remember that anything you read here should be treated like information from a group of friends and is not a substitute for qualified rabbinic advice in actual circumstances. That said, I look forward to seeing you around.

comment Reading a newspaper
@CharlesKoppelman Because the level of the issur might vary. For instance, eating pork on Yom Kippur violates the fast of Yom Kippur.

comment Jews under Charlemagne
The Rema is only talking about wine that has already been touched by the non-Jew. The question could be asking about wine which hasn't yet been touched by a non-Jew. Moreover, do you have any evidence any of this was written in response to Charlemagne?

comment Why Avraham hated Yishmael if he was a tzadik
"The original Torah was lost": What??? Who lost the Torah? The entire Judaism is based on an ancient tradition of understanding the text. The text is not just there for anyone to interpret however s/he wants. Given its Supreme Author, it's not surprising we rely on Authorial Intent in making our decisions. Would you have it any other way?

comment Trustworthiness of “new” dishes
@SethJ I don't know what the big number has to do with it unless you want to understand אפילו באלף לא בטל really literally. And Rabbinic issurim are also sometimes not batel (eg. muktza as a davar sheyesh lo matirin).
