comment Why isn't “Adam” a traditional Hebrew name?
@SethJ In no way does that refute my point. But seriously, that's what he goes by in America? He didn't revert to David or Drew?

@avi Not too many Doody's in America either.

He was asking why it isn't common. And even the most God-loving people can make mistakes.

@msh210 Were you even involved in MailJewish? Is there someway we can email Elozar Preil and ask him directly? Or perhaps get his email from the MailJewish people?

comment Father being Matir Neder for himself: does it affect the family?
(I don't know why you say the grandfather's minhag is the real one.) So the cases are parallel. Using your example: If I accept gebrochts, should my son over bar mitzva have to start keeping it when his grandfather didn't and he never did growing up? No source, but seems highly unlikely.

I don't understand. If he told us to stop yelling, doesn't that mean he heard?

comment Father being Matir Neder for himself: does it affect the family?
How is this different from if the father took on a new minhag? I don't see why that would be binding on others, certainly not on sons over bar mitzva!

@GershonGold If that text has their interpretation in it, do you mind if I paste in the entire original text in its stead?

comment Source that martyrs don't feel pain?
@ShimonbM Yes it certainly is different. But it is close enough that I'm guessing there is a different edition of Maharam's responsa that might have it that way. The hunt resumes...

@Menachem :) Oh how Moshe would be so confused if he heard us speaking today.

comment Why is a “leper” allowed to sit with other “lepers”?
@Menachem While we're on the topic of transliteration...מצורע ends with a closed syllable so I don't see why you would put a 'h' at the end of Metzorah.
