Can I Prepare Oatmeal on Shabbos in a Kli Shlishi?

Anash.org feature: Dayan Levi Yitzchok Raskin, Rov of Anash in London, explores interesting Torah questions and halachic dilemmas including a hole in a pitomless esrog, oatmeal in a kli shlishi, recited Yaaleh V’yavo by mistake, and listening to lechem mishneh without eating.

The following issues are discussed by Rabbi Raskin in this week’s episode:

  1. May we have the Yomtov meals early on the 1st night of Succos and of Shmini Atzeres?[1]
  2. Esroigim that grow without a pitam sometimes have a cavity at their peak. Does this impact the kashrus of the Esrog?[2]
  3. When reciting Pesukei deZimra and one hears Kaddish, does one answer every Omein or only some of them?[3]
  4. May one prepare Porridge-oats on Shabbos using hot water in a Kli Shlishi?[4]
  5. On Monday, the day after Rosh Chodesh, I said Yaaleh veYovoi. Do I have to repeat the Shmoineh Esrei?[5]
  6. For one who cannot eat grain at all, is there value in them being present when someone else makes the brocho over Lechem Mishneh?[6]
  7. A builder ruined my air-conditioner, which I will now have to replace. The machine was over ten years old, but I will have to install a totally new unit. Is the builder liable to pay for a new unit, or just the value of a ten-year-old machine?[7]
  8. Following on from the discussion re. very wide gates: What if my perimeter wall is made up of Tzuros haPesach (pole & wire) each 9 amos apart. Is that adequate?[8]
