comment Are there any national brands of tuna that are Bishul Yisroel?
@GershonGold The OU is certifying Bishul Akum??? Chas veShalom. Maybe "Bishul Yisrael" is an unclear term here and you should better clarify in your post what kind of tuna you are looking for. You want a Jew to do what with the tuna at what stage in the process?

Isn't all tuna with a Hekhsher Bishul Yisrael? Why would anyone put a Hekhsher on something not Kosher?

comment Why does the atonement for impurity in the Temple take so many different forms?
It's really easy to never know you violated this. That's what most of the latter stuff is for.

comment Splitting up Kadosh Kadosh Kadosh
Consider as an example also Vayikra 14:7 וְהִזָּ֗ה עַ֧ל הַמִּטַּהֵ֛ר מִן־הַצָּרַ֖עַת שֶׁ֣בַע פְּעָמִ֑ים You don't sprinkle from the Tzaraat on the guy who's becoming Tahor.

@Danno It wouldn't be the first time someone translated a verse against the Trop. Midrashim do it all the time.

comment Lashon of Tanah is based on Verses
How do you know that Mishna is an example of this phenomenon? What verse is it alluding to? Why do you find using biblical allusions odd or surprising?

comment Why follow a rebbe's every custom?
What is "hiskashrus", why are people trying to do it, and how does doing things the rebbe said make it truer?

comment When Israel and the diaspora are out of sync on parshiyot, why don't we take the first opportunity to re-align?
@IsaacMoses Doesn't have much that's not in Alex's answer. It just adds correctly that this was a non-issue for centuries when the "double-Parsha schedule" weren't nearly so uniform and different communities did different things and no one cared. Travel and communication was so infrequent and slow that it didn't matter. (Plus it's probably only a Chovat Tzibbur.)
