  • @Shokhet Is question #2 a duplicate? I'm not so sure. Although perhaps the question should be reversed, since it is essentially trivial that this applies to Jewish women, whereas the applicability of לא תקרבו vis-a-vis a non-Jew is perhaps non-trivial.

  • @Fred I'm not sure. There been some discussion if duplicate parts of a question should be edited out or not.

  • @Shokhet why would you want to take out the non-duplicate part and make it a duplicate? Instead, take out the duplicate part and make it a non-duplicate question. Feb 16 '15 at 20:40
