comment Substitutes for “Today” in the omer count
That's most convoluted. I would say that absent any explicit statement of הלילה being valid (probably a common case), it's clear that "tonight" is also not allowed and your whole system is lacking.

comment Can an Orthodox Jew go to a reform burial?
@havarka It would seem from the Gemara yes מדרכי שלום unless perhaps if there is AZ stuff happening (ie many Christian burials).

comment Who authored the topic - division headings in the Shulchan Aruch?
The Tur writes in his Hakdama that וראיתי עוד לעשות סימנים לכלול כל ענין וענין במלות קצרות ולכתבם בתחלת הספר במספר במנין למען היות נקל לבקש כל ענין וענין. Sure sounds like they are his headings.

Good thing this question isn't about you but is purely theoretical. If you'd like to edit to change the theoretical case you can.

comment How to tactfully make food blessings in front of a gentile?
First of all, it can be said in any language. Additionally, you'd be asking to say it to yourself quietly.

comment How to tactfully make food blessings in front of a gentile?
Many gentiles are familiar with the idea of reciting "grace" over food. It might not be that weird to ask for a moment to say grace.

comment How did the water climb so high?
We can note that 300 mil (at R' Chaim Naeh's 960m=1mil) is 288000m. Google Maps tells me that the distance from Eilat to the Adam Bridge (the site where the water stood up) is 289210m. Perhaps there is a metaphor/symbol of the news reaching all the way to the sea in the south? The Arava valley is in some ways the logical continuation of the Jordan River.

Hi Ravivo. Which book? What is its title? Do you know if it's available in multiple languages? Which others? Where have you checked?
