comment When does the obligation of Maaser money begin?
Exactly. That's why I encourage you not to treat this recommendation with too much respect. Treat it with respect, but know it's not a 'real' Din.

Those dates would be in good taste, but I'm asking what's permitted accd to Halacha.

comment When does the obligation of Maaser money begin?
Can you use a specific secular date (eg. Jan 1) even though it's usually more than a full Jewish year apart? Why if "one year" is a Jewish Halacha?

comment Is there a halachic time limit for sending an organization its charity box money?
@mbloch That's a very specific claim, not a general one about Tzedaka. Moreover there is no indication at all that calculating and separating the money wouldn't be sufficient, let alone if you've already sent it to be delivered. Why should it matter if the person hasn't received it yet? Moreover, as you say there, these rules are not concrete. You seem to be making a mountain out of a molehill by extending good recommendations way too far. What constitutes "cleaning/closing the account"? What constitutes "regularly"? If you do it every December 31, that's a problem in non-leap year? Says who?

"for tsedaka-matters one year is the time limit" I don't even know what that means. Time limit of what? What constitutes a "tsedaka-matter"?

comment Why Pesucha between Lo Sisa and Zachor Es HaShabbos?
There are multiple ways of splitting up the Dibrot (see here). You refer to the counting as set forth in the Taam Elyon. There are other ways of splitting it up, such as by the 10 Parshiyot which indicates a different way of counting 10 commandments.

meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/a/3684/759 You should always include your sources as best you can

comment Can Sefardim carry in Monsey, NY?
@Yishai It's not entirely clear that Stam/YO applies here. It's not like the Shulchan Arukh says "It is a reshut harabbim even without 600000 people. And some say you need 600000 people." What we have could be read as any other place where the ShA just says a YO with no other opinion.

How do you know this is the issue with the Monsey Eruv, and not some other issue about the Lechis, for example?

Many big cities rely on the Chazon Ish.

Your entire answer is based on the premise that it's somehow the donors responsibility to have the money delivered at a certain point. This seems unsubstantiated and dubious

comment Were the eirev rav Jewish?
Hi. How do you know this? Do you have a source for this? If so you should edit that citation into the post, as none of us know you that we should take your word for it.

comment Chalav Yisrael milk: stringency or binding?
@Daniel I suppose you could start with judaism.stackexchange.com/a/6146/759. After that you can consider the OU where Rs Belsky (zl) and Genack are careful not to eat Chodosh, yet the OU certifies things which are biblically forbidden as Chodosh. I don't feel a need to prove the point further as it is obvious.

comment Is there a halachic time limit for sending an organization its charity box money?
@msh210 Perhaps? It might also be that the implicit stipulation is that you will distribute the money when it's full. Or when you get a chance. Or before Purim. But that's only relevant if you are the distributor of the funds in the box to the needy. Or are you suggesting that one can even stipulate such that a request from the organization whose box it is can be ignored? I'm not sure if such a stipulation would work, and I strongly suspect such a stipulation would not be implicit even in one's own home.
