  • @DoubleAA I agree, but then, there isn't much to the body in the first place. The general idea is that you should be able to guess the general topic of a question from its title, before clicking on it. I couldn't, so I edited. Feel free to rework the body to be more elaborate or whatnot. May 2 '12 at 18:46
  • Wikipedia's "Chevra kadisha" page says, "[...] Tending to a meit mitzvah [mitzvah corpse] overrides virtually any other positive commandment (mitzvat aseh) of Torah law." Any truth to this?
