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.)

comment Bootstrapping problem: havdalah ends shabbat (for one who didn't daven ma'ariv) but lighting the candle is melacha?
@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.

Did he not use the Ein Mishpat??

They don't contain Mi Yodeya archives :)

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.

comment Terumot and Maasrot in Israeli Shuks
@Scimonster It's not what you said. You said they are chayav in trumot. That means if you were to, for instance, sell them to a non-Jew or maybe take them out of Israel the obligation would remain. Keva' regarding trumot is the relevant factor for allowing Achilat Arai.

That opinion of R Heinemann seems to echo his opinion about Yom Tov ovens (an opinion which is highly controversial).

Sounds more like Misaseik to me.

comment Loshon hara against non-Jews?
@Salmononius2 Why can't there be Chillul Hashem in front of other Jews? This fits perfectly in the Rambam's definition in Yesodei Hatorah 5:15 "או שדבורו עם הבריות אינו בנחת ואינו מקבלן בסבר פנים יפות אלא בעל קטטה וכעס." Sounds like a classic Chillul Hashem.

So the two Torahs which were both designed and authorized and approved by God exist, but one of them only exists temporarily? (You're aware, I assume, that this is the situation today. Different communities have different spellings of some words.)
