@Menachem - Contrary to Rambam, the verses don't say anything about conversion. 1 Kings Chapter 11

Sources provided; Still doesn't answer the question, but +1 for challenging the assumptions of the question. (Still at -5, so not gonna save you...)

comment Hair covering in photos
I'm still not sure how this isn't a dupe of judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/18271 In addition to being basically copy-pastes of each other, they're logically equivalent, unless the asker can demonstrate why the halacha should be different depending on when the pictures were taken. Voting to close.

comment what are the prerequisites for getting married?
I don't think there are any actual halachos about this, but the Gemara does discuss it (as aggadata) in various places.

comment Can one use a laser pointer instead of a “yad” while reading the Torah in public on weekdays?
The chance of scratching the letters with a metal yad is much higher than burning the klaf with your typical laser pointer. || Don't know why this is downvoted, since it does answer the question...

comment What is the meaning and origin of the term “in the parsha” with regard to someone who is looking for a shidduch?
It means s\he's in his\her twenties and is looking to date. I've heard it used in the M.O. \ YU crowd also, but not very often.

comment Where can I find a “guide” to shidduch resume etiquette and protocol?
Oh, here's an interesting one: aish.com/d/w/Dating-Profile-Tips.html Doesn't conform to the template, seems more like an essay, already a +1 in my book. YMMV.

This template seems OK: shidduchim.info/ShidduchProfileForm.doc (but I'd remove the Hashkafic part, or move it to the bottom. Why people think it's more important than basic personality traits is beyond me.)
