comment How do you pray for a sick baby who has not yet been named?
That's interesting, but doesn't answer my question. If the parents want to wait for the bris, how do you pray for the child before he is named?

comment What should I do about a fake convert?
Perhaps friend-of-ger is attempting to muddle the issue so that one cannot identify who this person might be. This would be to preserve anonymity, I guess.

comment Did Moshe have an earlier name?
Even if he was born without a foreskin, wouldn't there need to be a circumcision?

comment Adoptee a Cohen or Levi?
The same is true if the adoptee is Jewish, incidentally. Although the child can claim the adoptive parents names as part of his or her own, the child is not a blood relative. So unless you know for certain who the genetic father is, the adoptee is assumed to be Yisroel.

comment When (if ever) are converts still related to their relatives?
I'm confused: how is a child of a Jewish man and a non-Jewish woman not related to that father?

comment No one's ticket collected on the train: destroy?
In my experience, at least once I did not have my ticket collected because of problems with the train system. (The issue was not weather, but a delay of approximately three hours -- time spent stuck on the train.) Would that be a different case, since the lack of collection could be an apology from the railroad?

comment Are tefillin supposed to be removed before a bris (circumcision)? If so, why?
Please summarize the link in your answer, since we don't know for sure that the link will remain active.

comment Mourning Greetings
I know that during Shiva, you're not supposed to greet the mourners at all, but wait for them to greet you. Does that not apply during shloshim or the rest of the year?

comment How can I determine if someone is Shomer Negiah?
@msh210 It might benefit the other person if I raise the idea that not everyone is comfortable shaking hands with someone of the opposite gender.
