Answer A: What does this abbreviation stand for?
An expansion that fits the letters and appears in halachic literature is: > Kevod Moreinu, R' Note that כמו"ר, kevod moreinu verabbeinu, also appears in halachic literature. Edit: thanks to Robev for checking Otzar Roshei Teivot, by R' Shmuel Ashkenazi, which agrees.

Comment Post #276726 @racquetball I too have seen many places where the overwhelming majority of participants are careful about this. Assertions otherwise won't really do much to convince those who have seen this with their own eyes. I would recommend modifying the question to be more specific to avoid further downvotes,...

Comment Post #276688 @manassehkatz when I teach the last section of a masechta to others who plan on making a separate formal siyum, I ask them to leave the room, and not to read that section (at the very least, not to read it out loud) until their siyum. Preparing the last section means that one is not actually finishin...

Question Doubling up on a Siyum
Asking for a friend: If I learn with a Chavrusa and we both finish a Masechta together, assuming that we wait until different days to make the Siyum (whether permitted or not), if we each attend the other's Siyum, does it have the status of a Seudas Mitzvah? On the one hand, it is a completely sep...

Comment Post #276599 Excellent answer, thanks! (I am surprised that he wouldn't bring up the question of sha'atnez in felts (which is explicitly discussed in the poskim), and try to draw a comparison. Perhaps material for another answer.)

Question Do Felt Garments Require Tzitzit?
Various halachic authorities (see e.g. Rabbi Tzvi Pesach Frank in Responsa Har Tzvi 1:9, and discussion here) exempt garments produced from sheets of synthetic materials (e.g. nylon) from Tzitzit, since they aren't woven. Some of these authorities (see above) maintain that if these materials are spun...

Answer A: Translation of ״זעיר אנפין״ as "The Impatient One"
Firstly, this is a very common translation (see the Google Search results here, which include various Kabbalah websites). As @msh210 alluded to in the comments above, "Z'eir Anpin" is the opposite of "Arich Anpin", an Aramaic translation of Erech Apaim, which means "slow to anger". Consider the fo...

Answer A: Anger advice is only for men?
On a simple level, one can say that this particular segula) applies only to those who wear Tzitzit. There are other mystical pieces of advice given to help one overcome anger, including what Shelah himself writes there (commentary to Yoma, Derech Chaim Tochachat Mussar 192) in the name of the Ari z"l...
