Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The grapes may be eaten. Grapes are generally not infested to a degree that we would assume that there are bugs, it is merely a suspicion.

Halacha - Ancestry
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

You should continue following the customs your father and grandfather observed. The essence of a Minhag is continuing one’s parent’s practices; as no one can know with certainty what was the “original” Minhag.

Halacha - lo silbash
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: I don't see why there should be any issue of Lo Silbash on shaving cream. Obviously, the act of shaving itself for men presents its own isues.

Halacha - Chanukah Gifts
Submitted by Yaakov  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: There doesn't seem to be any source for gifts. Nitei Gavriel quotes a number of Chassidishe Rebbes who gave Chanuka Gelt, but the Minhag is not mentioned in Bnei Yissoschar and seems to be of more recent origin.

Halacha - break in seuda
Submitted by martin  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

First of all, assuming you are Ashkenazi and had already eaten a kzayis of bread before stepping outside, you do not need to make a new Beracha when you continue your meal.

Regarding washing, if you only went out of the house for a moment and intended to return, you do not need to wash again. However, if there was a prolonged delay and you were completely distracted from maintaining the cleanliness of your hand, the Biur Halacha writes that you are required to wash a second time and recite a new Beracha of Al Netilas Yadayim.

Halacha - tefilin
Submitted by yossi  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

The Mishna Berura 25§14 writes that even though the Gemara calls someone who Davens without Tefilin מעיד עדות שקר בעצמו, this only refers to someone who did so out of negligence and laziness. However, someone who did not have access to Tefillin at the proper time certainly should not delay reciting Kriyas Shema at the proper time.

Halacha - Spices
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Answer:

Generally, all food products, including spices, should be certified. The intricacies of modern food production can create unimaginable issues with seemingly innocuous ingredients. Nevertheless, there are some spices which can be used without certification. The following link contains a chart of which do and don't. http://www.crcweb.org/spice_list.php
