Anash.org feature: A weekly shiur by Dayan Levi Yitzchok Raskin, Rov of Anash in London, explores interesting Torah questions and halachic dilemmas.

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

  1. Feedback on ending a fast 72 minutes after sunset, although it isn’t yet dark: [1]
  2. We are suffering from the proliferation of flies in our area. May we wear Citronella bracelets on Shabbos? [2]
  3. Negel Vasser after sleeping on an airplane? [3]
  4. Negel Vasser after having a blood sample taken, a cut, donating blood? [4]
  5. I have bought premises where there is an old Matzo oven. I understand that there are issues with demolishing an oven. What do you advise? [5]
  6. Spaghetti Bolognaise: One brocho or two brochos? [6]
  7. Stir-fry made with vegetables and pieces of chicken; האדמה, שהכל or both? [7]
  8. Does frosting on a cake count towards the volume of כזית to warrant al hamichya? [8]
  9. Spinach salad with pieces of mango:
  10. Reuven lends Shimon the use of his Credit Card. Shimon doesn’t pay in time. Reuven is charged interest. May Shimon reimburse Reuven for that which he is out of pocket? [9]

[4]  פסקי תשובות סי’ ד סעיף כז.
