comment How to collect Bikurim practically?
@chaimp They are not because they cannot be separated until after the produce is picked, unlike Bikkurim.

comment How to collect Bikurim practically?
@chaimp No. Bikkurim only applies when there is a Temple around, unlike Terumah.

comment Why is the mitzvah of Shofar on Rosh Hashannah for hearing the sound and not for blowing the shofar?
It is not like Kiddush. It's like Tefillin. I can't put Tefillin on for you as it is a Mitzva shebeGufo, a commandment pertaining to your body.

You have given no reason to suspect there should be such a Mitzva, so this is a pretty weak question. Most Mitzvot have actions which need to be done prior to the Mitzva (eg. building a Sukkah, baking Matza)

comment Safek De'Oraysa Le'Chumra
I thought he was asking about something like Tevilat Keilim where it's not clear there is any Deorayta at all. Would SDlCh lead us to paskin like those Rishonim who think it does exist? @Yishai YEZ

comment Zohar, Texture, Color and the Shapes of this World
Is this a translation question? How do you even know the Zohar says what you claim it says?

comment Safek De'Oraysa Le'Chumra
@YEZ I don't mean conceptually "bread" just something that requires Bentching (I know that's circular). I just mean "there is a debate as to which cases constitute the de'oraysa" so it's the first case, no?

comment Safek De'Oraysa Le'Chumra
Isn't this the first case? We know there is a Deorayta to Bentch, we just don't know if mezonos counts as (sufficiently) bread(-like).

comment Blowing shofar for someone at their home
That is the normal case in cities with Shuls. It is also important to understand what to do in cities without Shuls where everyone is essentially hearing Shofar at home. I didn't know if you were discussing the most general case or not.

Are you assuming that the one blowing has already fulfilled his obligation?

comment Blowing shofar for someone at their home
Women have a rabbinic obligation??? I have never heard of such a thing. Moreover I know men who recite a blessing on Megilla when reading for only women (I say this even for those who recite a different blessing for women due to a possible difference in obligation). In any event, I asked why the gender distinction? Most Achronim recommend the listener say the blessing independent of gender.

comment Is a rare steak kosher?
@user6591 The vinegar is kosher because no blood was drawn out, but the blood was sealed inside like in traditional Chalita. It's no coincidence the Rambam used the same word here.

comment Safek De'Oraysa Le'Chumra
"Would we say here safek de'oraysa lechumra and paskin that the de'oraysa exists?" I don't see why saying safek de'oraysa lechumra implies that we must paskin that the de'orays exists.

comment Are men allowed to listen to women on the radio?
Mishna Berura was published over a decade before radios became sophisticated enough to carry music.

comment Did a synod in Poland in 1631 decree the censorship of some parts of the Talmud?
I would too. Thankfully there's a question on Mi Yodeya seeking just that!
