comment Is a Jew permitted to have an abortion?
@Karamazov - Most of the Hebrew are simply the names of the book\person who said that statement. Here's a quick glossary: רמב"ם = Maimonides; רודף = assailant; אסור = prohibited; מותר = permitted; מקל = lenient; מחמר = stringent; רציחה = murder; חייב מיתה = deserving of capital punishment

comment Is it permissible to use an umbrella on Shabbat?
@YEZ - Comments on the Torah Musings link (above, also here ) mention that Chief Rabbi Jakobowitz permitted carrying already-open umbrellas on Shabbat. Now if only I could find a reliable source to back up those comments... <<||>> Tatiana - Thank you for your answer. Indeed, it appears logical to me that carrying an already-open umbrella should be fine, but I'm no rabbi.

comment Can jews eat unclean animals when blood is removed?
@JimThio - Today, most people don't hunt nor (afaik) eat deer. I don't understand what you're getting at. Just because something isn't done doesn't mean it can't be done. || The Talmud contains references to Jews hunting deer. I don't remember the exact source, but there is a story about a rabbi who was an expert shot with a bow and arrow, and he shot a deer in such a fashion that it was a "kosher kill," and was permitted to eat.
