comment SE Challenge: Halachot in which rulings range from permissible to Torah violation?
And of course, everything is made up of multiple molecules, atoms, sub-atomic particles... I do not know, though I could make several educated guesses as to where the "composite" line is drawn. Recognizability, naming, visibility, etc., are all used in halacha for making similar distinctions. But these are only guesses, and this is not really meant to be a comprehensive explanation of that sugya nor to teach practical halacha. The first link provides multiple related sources for those who are interested in learning more.

comment Clarification on “The Bloody Court”
@Monica and Clint, I've re-edited to change it to a different site. This one is more commonly used here, but it's similar enough that I wonder if it isn't just a scrape. In any event, its not overtly anti-jewish, like the original one.

comment Is the Targum Neofiti a valid source of translation?
@not-allowed. No problem :). (I've upvoted, fwiw). The only thing I (personally) would add to the question is what the significance of it being authoritative would be, and why it or Onkelos is different from modern "authoritative" translations (e.g., Artscroll, JPS, et al.) This is, again, something more knowledgeable people might know, but I like to recommend keeping the bar as low as reasonably possible.

Try to include as much info in the question as possible, and keep reliance on links to a minimum. This will also help pique the interest of people who may not otherwise look twice at your question. Then you get better answers, more interaction (and more upvotes ;)) These are general rules to keep in mind. It's better to explain too much, than to assume that everyone will know what you mean.
