Hi Yaakov! What have you checked? Hebrewbooks.org has 4 books with that name, for instance.

comment Is there a method for evaluating authenticity of revelation to other nations?
@mevaqesh Please don't edit to change others' transliteration schemes. The standard on MY is that there is no standard, so long as it is (somewhat) intelligible, and were everyone to edit according to their whim, then Eiyn laDhDhabhar Soap.

comment Sin Offerings — what did you do after sin, before you got to the temple?
Can you comment also on the uncleanliness aspect (or lack thereof) and note the rare occurrence of Korbanot for Mechusarei Kapparah?

comment Why do women wear ponytail elastics on Shabas?
@msh210 My volume is rather yellowed so I assume it is not any of the redone versions but probably the original. It was printed in Jerusalem in 5725.

comment Why not two days of Rosh Hodesh, as we have two days of yontif?
@YehudaW The difference in start dates is just due to the fact that all YTs come in months following months with 29 days, and all 2 day RHs come in months following months with 30 days. Nothing exciting. Likewise, YT at the beginning of the month and RH at the beginning of the month are treated exactly the same in Israel and outside Israel.

@Ypnypn I don't understand your point. We're talking about the beginning of the month. Why after a 29 day month don't we keep Rosh Chodesh on days 1 and 2 of the next month just in case?

comment How does a c'zayit of a body practically get inside the hive when it fills the house (Ohalot 9:9)?
I meant something new came inside the house from outside. Is the Tumah still spreading?

Motion to close any question on that Perek as "Unclear What It Is Saying" :-)

What if it got in that position and something new came inside?

I don't understand what your last comment is trying to add to the question?

I don't understand how this answers the question. Why isn't there 2 days of Rosh Chodesh every month out of doubt?

comment Why Jer. 31 on Rosh Hashana?
It appears now I didn't care to at the time, nor do I project I will in the near future (before this slips my mind again). Feel free to post yourself and delete these comments.
