Halacha - Tehillim @ Night
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Tehillim may always be recited at night because it is only supplications, and the issue is exclusively learning Torah she'bKsav at night.

Halacha - Hashem's name on a digital screen
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

I recently had the opportunity to discuss this subject with the author of an authoritative Sefer on the topic.

First of all, the accepted Halacha does not follow their view and everyone who uses these programs is relying on the lenient opinions.

Furthermore, he questions their understanding of the mechanics of a computer monitor, as the screen refreshes itself many times a second. Consequently, one is not really erasing, merely preventing the Name from being re-drawn.

Halacha - Tanach at night
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The Mishna Berura deduces from the Pri Megadim that it is only a preference to refrain from mikra at night but not an obligation, however the mekuballim are very strict on this issue based on the Arizal. While there are some opinions that permit chumash after chatzos, the predominant and accepted opinion is not until alos hashachar. If you learn Rashi together with the pesukim, it is permitted.

Halacha - Posul Sefer Torah on Simchat Torah
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

It is appropriate to dance even with an invalid Sefer Torah. We are expressing our joy over the content of the Torah, which is unchanged. It is not essential that it be valid to read from.

Halacha - Shaimos
Submitted by freida  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Any papers of pesukim or divrei Torah, whether written or printed, must be placed in geniza. This includes children's parsha sheets, homework, etc. The exception would be a page primarily dedicated to non-Torah subjects, such as a frum newspaper, but containing divrei Torah w/o Hashem's name. These do not require geniza and may be discarded, but should be wrapped or bagged first to avoid disgrace.

Halacha - Mikra at night
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Thursday night is also fine. The Mishna Berura deduces from the Pri Megadim that it is only a preference to refrain from mikra at night but not an obligation, however the mekuballim are very strict on this issue based on the Arizal. While there are some opinions that permit chumash after chatzos, the predominant and accepted opinion is not until alos hashachar. If you learn Rashi together with the pesukim, it is permitted.
