Halacha - Shabbat
Submitted by Sholom Cohn  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

Using these adhesive book marks on Shabbos would be questionable. On the one hand, since the adhesive is relatively weak and not designed to remain permanently and their normal usage is to frequently detach and reattach them, they might appear to be permitted similar to the tabs on disposable diapers. However, since it would be common to sometimes leave them in place for an extended period of time, there is reason to draw a distinction, and they should not be used.

Halacha - kosher not mevushal wine
Submitted by renee reinharz  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

I'm afraid that it is difficult for me explain, you should ask the Rav who said it. If the wines truly have a fine Hechsher and will be consumed in a controlled environment, I see no problem with their non-Mevushal status.

Halacha - Tefillin
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: It is better to put on the Tefilling immediately, as soon as possible. There is also an Inyan to wear them for Shmoneh Esrei, and he can put them on a second time if he wishes.

Halacha - kashrus
Submitted by JJ  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The spoon is permitted, as it only received old Fleishig flavor from the pot. However, the pot must be Kashered, as it is Fleishig and now contains fresh Milchig flavor. You must thoroughly clean the pot, wait 24 hours, and immerse it in a vat of boiling water.

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

Regarding your Sukka, the walls do not necessarily have to reach the Schach. However, in this case, the wall should be directly underneath the Schach with no horizontal gap between them at all.

Assuming he only pours the water into his mug only when it is cold and clean, the kettle is not Treif. The steam rising off of his mug to the kettle will not forbid it. However, this arrangement is less than ideal.

Halacha - kashrus of cut lime in drink
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: I would advise not drinking it. Assuming a lime is considered "charif", the knife very likely was washed in hot water together with non-Kosher items, and possibly used to cut non-Kosher food, in the past. Even though more than 24 hours may have passed, cutting a sharp food is still forbidden.

Halacha - Kashrus
Submitted by Daniel  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The tongs and eggs are permitted, because the Milchig pot does not have the ability to forbid anything without a sharp tatste due to the age of the absorbed flavor. The pot is also permitted; even though it receives fresh Milchig flavor, by the time it reaches the pot is is already nat bar nat (2 steps removed) and doe snot become forbidden. Rama YD 95:3

Halacha - 9 days
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: First of all, Mazal Tov on the upcoming Simcha.
If there will not be enough time to buy them afterwards, they may even be purchased during the week of Tisha b'Av, as per the Rema. The same would apply to the dry cleaners, though I would suspect that there is enough time during the two weeks after Tisha b'Av, in which case there is no Heter.
Even if the issue is only saving money, the Mishna Berura writes that this too is sufficient grounds to permit purchasing items.
