comment Which alphabet were the original Torah scrolls in?
@SethJ It could be a morphed tradition, or it could be that the tradition had been vague and the rabbi who articulated it as mem and samech happened to have held not like Mar Zutra.

comment Which alphabet were the original Torah scrolls in?
@Michoel It would, but realize that an ayin in ktav ivri also has a hollow middle so the tradition of floating centers could easily be applied to either opinion.

comment Din of Lachem by arba minim when saying Hallel
@JNF I think you have it backwards. The Hallel Na'anuim are the main ones. The ones done after the original bracha are the extra ones.

comment Is there a way to tell if a Pitom of an Etrog has been broken, or was grown that way?
What does this even mean? Put a hair through what?

comment Different Aliyot for Same Torah Reading
@Michoel I'd have to see it inside, but it could be that the siddur is not specifying how to split up the aliyot when split in three but only how to do it when done in 5. Certainly the way I've always seen it in Israel is the way JNF describes, but that's no proof.

comment Different Aliyot for Same Torah Reading
@Michoel Is yours talking about second day of pesach in Israel where there are only 3 total aliyot?

comment How cold is too cold?
The Rama does not sound like he's only rejecting the cold heter in certain particularly warm years. If you want to say it was often 10 degrees then that's a huge chumra for the Rama.

comment How cold is too cold?
@Ariel Showing the highest and lowest is just as poor a way of measuring it because they could just be freak occurrences. Unless you can find what the average temperature variance is, I'd assume it isn't unusually large.

comment How cold is too cold?
@Ariel Average Low is the average of all the lowest temperatures for each day of the month. Obviously there could be one day when it was really ridiculously cold, but we can only assume the Rema was talking about an average case when he said you should bring more pillows.

@dongle26 'Slaughtered' is a metaphor. Satan is not a person.
