comment Shalsheles Trop
More about shalshelet, from R. Mordechai Breuer's "Taamei HaMiqra": Shalshelet has the same function as segol, namely that it divides the first half of a pasuk (i.e. the part of the pasuk preceding the etnachta) in half, when the first half of the pasuk is long. However, a segol requires a zarqa earlier in the pasuk, so when a segol would occur on the first word of a pasuk, it becomes a shalshelet. This explains why shalshelet always occurs on the first word of the pasuk, and why there is always at least one zaqef between the shalshelet and the following etnachta.

comment Chametz owned by a public company
Fortunately, this is not of immediate practical concern, since the snacks are restocked daily. I just need to know about the supplier. But I still thought it was an interesting question.

comment Order of birth of Ya'akov's children
I don't see how the Feldheim dates fit with your point that there should be a break between Yehuda and Yissachar. Also, once Leah is pregnant with Yissachar, why would Zilpah continue to have children? The straightforward understanding would seem to imply that Yissachar should come after Gad and Asher.
