Oliver Sacks was the Uncle of Jonathan Sacks. Strangely, when you google this 2 contradicting results come up. One saying they are not related ( https://leftfootforward.org/20.....-obituary/ )the other an obit by Rabbi Sacks on his uncle. https://www.theguardian.com/bo.....awakenings

They really do look alike.

That is an elegant obit. And maybe they do look alike. But is it the same Jonathan Sacks?

Not everyone agrees that onion is shehakol unless fried. There are sects who hold raw onion is ha'adama.

Some Jewish communities in Southern Hungary were established by Jews moving southward from Austria in the second half of the 1700's, following Joseph II's Edicts of Tolerance that finally gave permission to Jews to live in different areas.

When do you not have to remove it? When you wash for that bread that you kneaded?

I believe the concept is that if you never remove your ring, it’s not a chatzitza.
