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.

comment Silent aleph (no, I mean really silent)
I'm not sure exactly who you are responding to, but yes the aleph in בְּרֵאשִׁית is a מלא tzere vowel.

comment Silent aleph (no, I mean really silent)
Yosef: Regarding the tsere in ישמעאל, my understanding is as follows: Any of the five long vowels can sometimes be written מלא, i.e. appearing as a written letter. For tzere, chirik, and kamatz, when we write in nikudim, we write the nikud before the the letter that represents the מלא vowel. (See ראשי in Bamidmar 28:11 for example of kamatz aleph, and there are abundant examples of chirik yod.) Only for cholam and shuruk do we write the vowel on the letter, generally vav. I'm no expert on this, so I welcome any more accurate information.
