The short answer is no. Waiting between consuming meat and consuming dairy has nothing to do with how much time we perceive to have elapsed but with the experience of the person who consumed it. Spaceman Ploni, who decided to eat meat immediately prior to takeoff (a revolting thought), can still taste it when he returns to earth, despite the fact that his ...
As the OU has it:
Extra sleep is also considered appropriate and desirable on Shabbat, in line with the principle of "Shayna b'Shabbat Taanug," "(Extra) Sleep on Shabbat is considered a Delight!"
Start your own afternoon gathering. You don't need to be super-learned or invest a great deal of time to start very interesting and worthwhile discussions....
אך האריז"ל הנהיג להוסיף שלשה פסוקים ראשונים ממזמור צ"ה, "לכו נרננה"
וכו', כדי לא לסיים בפורענות - "יצמיתם ה' אלקינו", כעין מה שאמרו חז"ל

Seder Hadorot tells us that Moshe Rabbeinu was born in the year 2368.
It then tells us that G-d spoke to Moshe at the burning bush on the 15th of Nissan in the year 2447. This would mean that Moshe had just turned 79 a little over a month before, on the 7th of Adar. Moshe then goes to talk to Pharoah when he is 79.
(Incidentally, the Seder HaDorot brings ...
The Rashbam to Bereishis 43:33 writes that not only were the 6 sons of Leah born in 7 years, but also all of the other sons of Yaakov (with the obvious exception of Binyamin, who is explicitly mentioned as having been born later).
There are two basic possibilities of how this would happen. One option is that the literal chronology of the verses (which ...
Shivchei HaBesht records an episode where the Baal Shem Tov wrote a letter to his brother-in-law R' Gershon of Kitov, telling him how he had been taken to task by the Heavenly Court for excommunicating a Torah scholar without sufficient cause. R' Gershon wrote back to say that this indeed had happened, but only after the date of the Baal Shem Tov's letter - ...
In Menachot 29B, the following story is told (English taken from page 112 of here):
Rab Judah said in the name of Rab, When Moses ascended on high he found the Holy One,
blessed be He, engaged in affixing coronets to the letters. Said Moses, ‘Lord of the Universe, Who
stays Thy hand?’ He answered, ‘There will arise a man, at the end of many ...
The walls of the sukkah can be constructed anytime you want; you can even leave them up all year, if you're so inclined. (There are even people who have retractable roofs on their houses, so that their sukkah is their dining room or bedrooms or whatever.)
The sechach (plant material used for the roof of the sukkah) is a different story. You can put it up ...
Seder Olam Rabbah, by R. Yosei ben Chalafta (2nd century), gives a unified chronology from Creation until his own times (although the last part of it, covering the Second Temple era and its aftermath, is given pretty short shrift).
The Gemara (Avodah Zarah 9b) quotes a baraisa (also from, at the latest, the 2nd or early 3rd century) that makes a prediction ...
For the entirety of Jewish History, Judaism has kept to a day that begins at sunset on the previous 'secular/non-Jewish date'. Therefore, all meals eaten after sundown would be considered to already be eaten on that day, not on the previous day.
What is very interesting about your question is that the Torah specifically mentions the eating of a Passover ...
Recite T'hilim (from a large-print copy).
Visit with neighbors/friends. (Avoid lashon hara. :-) )
Visit the homebound. (Or hospital-bound, but CYLOR about automatic doors and other issues.)
Push the community to have more classes or get-togethers. Talk to local rabbis and/or lay leaders.
You say you already read but have a hard time because of print ...
In the introduction to the Tur (upon which the Shulchan Aruch is based), R' Yaakov Baal HaTurim writes that he organized the Sefer based on the order of the day, how a person should conduct himself from when he wakes up until he goes to sleep.
The Shulchan Aruch O.C. 7:3 says that a person who went to the bathroom a second time after forgetting to say Asher Yatzar the first time must say Asher Yatzar twice.
The Mishna Berura 7:6 there understands this as a "make-up" bracha (tashlumin) similar to missing Tefilla. He rejects the S.A., (because of safek berachos lehakel) in favor of those who only ...
The technical reason is a Gemara in Kiddushin that says that since women are not obligated in Tfilin (which is mentioned in a verse near the verse that speaks about Torah learning, where it says (Vshinantem levanecha, you shall teach your son(and not your daughter))), which they are free from because , they are not obligated in any commandment similar to ...
We say every morning "Neshalma parim sefatenu".
Since we cannot offer Korbanot , we got the Tfila instead.
So the Tfila follows the order of the Korbanot.
For the Korbanot the day starts after sunrise.
The source of this midrash is actually the Talmud in Chagigah 13b -- 14a. The Talmud states:
תניא אמר רבי שמעון החסיד אלו תשע מאות ושבעים וארבע דורות שקומטו להיבראות קודם שנברא העולם ולא נבראו עמד הקב"ה ושתלן בכל דור ודור והן הן עזי פנים שבדור

From the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA) conversion FAQ:
The amount of time for a convert to be prepared for conversion varies

factors. A minimum of two years of study and experiential growth is
generally recommended ...
There are six commandments applicable to males at all times:
Know there is God.
Don't believe in other gods.
Belief in unity of God.
Don't be lead astray by your eyes and heart.
These are all equally relevant for females. The last one may apply somewhat differently to females and males. There are many other vitally important ...
There are a few things that are not affected by Shaos Zemaniyos. Waiting time between eating meat and milk - you wait the amount of actual hours your Minhag is. Mazalos are also not affected by Shaos Zemaniyos and the Mazal of Maadim is between 6-7 PM during standard time and between 7-8 PM during daylight time.
Please see this link from Medrash Shocher ...
The Sefer Yerushas Pleita (Siman 16) brings from a sefer called Matta Yerushalayim that quotes in the name of the Chasam Sofer that it was common for people to set up a fire on Erev Shabbos in a way that would burn along a path until shabbos morning where it would reach the stove that had a coffee pot sitting on top and it would cook it.
Based off this the ...
This does not include the time in the oven, but the notion that the entire process until the dough goes into the oven must be completed within 18 minutes is based on actual opinions on the books.
I found the sources cited below and got help in understanding and contextualizing them via the following contemporary English digests:

Sing. I can spend an hour just singing zemirot after lunch, and sometimes I'll take down my copy of Avraham Baer's "Der Practische Vorbeter" or one of Chazzan Pinchas Spiro's series of books, or the Harvard Hillel bentcher, and teach myself a new tune to a tefillah.
Have you heard the story about a goat? A Jew comes to his Rabbi and says: "Rebbe, my house is tiny, and I have a large family. It has become so crowded, that it is unbearable! What should I do?" The Rebbe says: "Do you have a goat?" The Jew says: "Yes, I have a goat". "Then bring the goat into the house."
The Jew is puzzled, but he does what the Rebbe ...
The Gemara in Pesachim 46a (brought in the Rambam Laws of Chametz 5:13 and the Shulchan Aruch OC 459:2) says that if one leaves dough for the length of time that it takes to walk 1 "mil" (a Talmudic unit of distance) then it becomes Chametz. Opinions regarding the time it takes to walk a mil vary from 18-24 minutes, and here we are strict to take the shorter ...
The goal is concentration and that takes awareness and work. Some people naturally read slower but for many, it isn't a matter of reading as it is of focusing. The prayer isn't a race but a chance to connect with the divine -- it shouldn't be the goal to get through it as quick as possible -- that should be the opposite of the desired experience. It isn't ...
As long as the Shevarim-Teruah in TaShRa"T
As long as the Shevarim in TaSha"T
As long as the Teruah in TaRa"T
Source Shulchan Aruch HaRav 590:7
As to how long the Shevarim and the Teruah have to be, it depends on the definition of the Teruah. It is 3 Yevavot (not quite sure how to translate that, see Talmud Rosh Hashanah 33B), and according to some ...
From Torah.org (quoting Pischei Choshen, Halvahah 2, note 72):
The legal concept of "statute of limitations" is not recognized by the halachah
