comment Why does Jewish law and tradition specify times for saying Shema?
@BinyominTrager Are you kidding? That's not what he says! He says you didn't fulfill the Mitzva of reading it during its time.

comment What is the original halachic source for a woman covering her collarbones out of modesty (tznius)?
Ahhh most peculiar. The Kaf haChayim seems to have had a different version of the Tiferet Shemuel than we do.

comment What is the original halachic source for a woman covering her collarbones out of modesty (tznius)?
@Alex Are you sure that's what he means? He says: ודבר שרגיל להיות מכוסה באשה וכו': פי' לאפוקי מה שדרך נשים להיות מגולה כגון הפנים והצואר וידים אבל נראה בעיני במיקל שרגילות הנשים לגלות זרועותיהם ורגילין להיות פתוח עד סמוך לדדיה זהו מנהג רע וקורא אני בהם חקים לא טובים וטפח באשה ערוה. He's talking about sleeves that are so short they risk exposing the breast from the side.

@GershonGold Why hypothetical? What if it doesn't get returned? Also, wouldn't this still be a problem from the outset?
