comment Eating indoors when it's raining on Sukkos
judaism.stackexchange.com/a/13576/759 I don't really follow the question. When it's not raining he should go to the sukkah and when it is raining he should leave. What does eating have to do with anything?

comment If someone eats in the succah anyways while it's raining, do they need to stay in the kosher part?
@msh210 Just fyi the Rama does not agree with the position I presented in my answer. He thinks the issue with rain is a Chisaron in Dirah/Mitztaer as opposed to in Shem Sukkah.

@Dude So is getting simcha from sitting in a sukkah in the rain. If you are going to be idiotic and not accomplish anything by doing so anyway, might as well not be uncomfortable.

comment Why is driving on Chol Hamo'ed allowed?
@YEZ You're making the same point as msh210. I wasn't trying to be overly technical before. Something muttar on Yom Tov is certainly muttar on Chol Hamoed is the point I was making.

@YEZ Yes. For the purposes of this question though, we don't paskin like that Rambam and it is Letzorekh Klal.

comment Minhagim for removing tefilin on chol hamoed
@msh210 Unless you consider the Hasid of Vilna to be hasidic, I believe you are mistaken. You are right though that it isn't only Germans.

@NotBruceWayne I am a Hebrew speaker as well, and I can assure you that translations of modern Hebrew words do not necessarily accord to their meaning in Biblical texts.

Burning is not a prohibited melacha on Yom Tov. Starting a new fire is Nolad and there is no Nolad concerns on Chol Hamoed TTBOMK.

comment Why is bamboo kosher for schach?
"it can't have been fashioned by a human with the intention of being used for something else" is not a very precise definition.
