comment What does one do if he makes a mistake in Brachos before Birkas HaTorah?
@Fred I don't know about that. He's saying it bederech shevach. What's the problem?

comment What's the difference between wasting seed and having marital relations without the possibility of conception?
@AniYodeya Your link doesn't address any of Alice's points (or represent the full spectrum of Halachik opinions (that's not a complaint against it for after all it's not meant to be a thorough Halachik resource)).

Do you have any reason to think he wouldn't be liable?

comment Woman with 2 wombs in regards to pidyon haben
Does he mean separate cervices or vaginae? I suspect the OP's case would only ever happen with two cervices, yet we can test that the Halachik requirement of Yatza Rosho seems to apply when the baby's head leaves the vagina as well (I don't have proof of this, but YD 305:22 sounds that way and it certainly would seem surprising otherwise).

comment Is there anything halachically or hashkafically wrong with installing reference computers in a Bet Midrash?
@YEZ I thought you "how far this goes" was joking only. I don't know why it is obvious whether the computer in this instance is too far or not. (You take it as obvious that he would oppose this.)

@Shalom We don't, but many Rishonim did. Fun fact.

comment How can the Rambam's Eighth Principle of Jewish Faith be believed in light of Hazal?
Saying it in Hebrew doesn't help either... What your saying is: there are two Torahs, but we call the second one "not a Torah" in order not to violate our dogma. Other than that they are the same.

Right so one was given at Sinai, and the other, which is equally usable, was given later and will be taken away at some point. Sounds like 2 Torahs. (You can keep opening with that pronouncement but it doesn't make what you claim after it kosher.)

So you are saying the second Torah is not really Dvar Hashem and therefore we can't use it as a Torah? Either God approved it and it's a Torah or he didn't and it's not.

It's very hard to help when you aren't clear about what you are seeking. If you'd rather continue to write poor questions and accordingly get low quality results, go ahead, though I don't know why you'd want that.

Compromised? I'm just reading your source. Human's physically made the second Torah under Hashem's guidance, just like the first Torah was physically made by humans (ie Moshe) under Hashem's guidance. If both the Torahs are made in the same way and both can be used as reflecting God's will, as perfect, as law, etc., then what is the difference exactly? There are two Torahs.

comment Terumot and Maasrot in Israeli Shuks
@Jake That is not entirely accurate. The Mehadrin fruit Hashgachot will be more careful about certain species which may possibly be Orlah, as well as other more subtle details in the Hafrasha. I agree though that it's an overall "low risk" venture.

comment Terumot and Maasrot in Israeli Shuks
@Jake That is not accurate here as the produce was being prepared to be sold so it was Nikba' already at Gemar Melacha. Going into the house is only relevant for one's personal produce.
