When is chometz considered sold this year ?

Depends on the Rov. My Rov said that the sale is effective shortly before Shabbos.

That's not a halacha.

https://shulchanaruchharav.com/halacha/nails/
So I learned 2 things, 1 alternating only applies to the hand, 2 prior to the chet ho'etz the body was nail voted, 3 you don't need to wash your hands after cutting someone else's nails

Interesting, thanks for sharing.
Learnt a few new things.
  I guess it's time for me to start learning the MB cover to cover.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

You aren't supposed to take haircuts or cut nails on motzie shabbos unless they did so on Friday as well. Otherwise it's considered "bizuy shabbos" .

I don't know about the first 2, but the 3rd is definitely not a universally accepted opinion.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

taus akum question

would a taus akum apply to a gift card or to points?

when u walk into a store and u pay with a 10 and they give u change as if u paid with a 20, they gave u the actual money.
when they make a mistake and credit you points or send a you a gift card by mistake, you dont have their money rather you have a cash value. meaning if i just dont use thier gift card or just dont use thier points, then I am technically giving them the cash value back....or maybe it was never mine till i use it....so who says i am allowed to keep it and use it in such a case???

im asking bec amex screwed up and gave me 30k extra marriot bonvoy points (their error) and bed bath and beyond screwed up and sent me a gift card for 150 that i still dont understand why they sent it to me....

not sure if this is even a question, so i dont want to sit and explain it to a rav if its just a random boich sevara of mine.......

thanks

You walk into shul, one minyan is saying Kaddish while a second minyan is saying kedusha. What to do ?

Halocha Sheila

I can get 6 of the banned Dr. Suess books from my local library. Can I take them out knowing that I won't return them and just pay the fine for unreturned books?
