comment Relighting Chanukah lights that extinguish
@YeZ What's the problem? Benefit from oil which was designated for the Mitzva? You don't benefit from the candles.

comment What species have identifying characteristics from multiple types in kashrus halacha?
@NBZ Was I supposed to guess that? Why should "leafy like plant" indicate safek plant? Why should "lives in the water" indicate safek fish? Cows drink water like birds, and have two eyes like fish.

@NBZ What is it about seaweed or penguins that may cause someone to consider it safek plant/bird, safek fish?

Non binding VTC as POB (EDIT: my non-binding vote remains after the edit. I still have no idea how to identify the other types nor why flying is the metric for birds.)

"approximately 320 years" That's kinda weak, no? The Jews were also in Egypt for approximately that long.

comment Kiddush in Schul on Yom-Tov
Note that the first night of Sukkot (and the second and eighth in the Diaspora) can be problematic depending on where and by whom Kiddush is being said.
