2. “Why does the Torah allow us to eat grasshoppers? Why would we want to eat bugs?” (Via “Malphigian Tubule Expert”)
3. “What is the meaning of leather shoes in Judaism? We can’t wear them on Yom Kippur or Tisha B’av. We can’t wear them in the Mishkan or Beis Hamikdash. They must be worn during chalitzah. Also, are we specifically supposed to wear leather shoes during the rest of the year? What is the meaning of all this? (Via anonymous)
4. “It seems that there is a trend in frum publication and advertising that womenโ€™s faces can never be shown. Many women, including myself find this to be demeaning, upsetting, and absurd. What are your opinions about this trend? (Via Nechama)
