comment What is the most successful way to do conversion for a Gentile girl in a relationship with a Jew?
It's my impression that the population of rabbis who deal with conversion is divided when it comes to the conversion of someone romantically involved with a Jew. I think the idea in North America is that commitment to Judaism is the most important thing about conversion, and the relationship casts a lot of doubt on the candidate's sincerity. In Israel the concerns about national integrity are stronger, so there may be a more willing attitude. Perhaps in areas with less distinction between ortho and heterodox groups also.

FWIW the Yeshiva Ktana of Passaic has mezuzos on the outer doors in such an arrangement.

comment Do permanently unmarried women need to go to the mikvah?
This may speak more to my ignorance than any deficiency in the question, but can you add the specifics of any other reason that a woman might have to go to the mikveh besides the marital one?

comment Responding to “that's not a Jewish name”
Heh, I'm a ger with a Germanic last name, so I have the inverse situation. If I were a McDowell or something (actually I'm Mackenzie and Helsher on my mother's side) I would probably devolve to something like "I bet Goldberg wouldn't have sounded particularly Jewish to Moshe Rabbeinu," but I guess that's a bit aggressive

comment Fixing incorrectly-said word in davening
Hi Bruce, thank you for your detailed answer; my question does not concern itself with doubts, but rather which words or syllables one must repeat after a mistake is made. The question assumes that the individual realizes immediately and is not disoriented. I will clarify in the question.
