Do tifilin and sefer torah, require sirtut as a mezuza? Does a pasuk in a letter require sirtut? Is a blind person patur from mitzvos? How often does one require to check the kasharus of tifilin and mezuzas? How is the letter "shin" written on the tefilah shel rosh? Does one need to do the sirtut l'shma? Does a get require sirtut? How many names are written on a get to describe the parties? Does one write the family name on a kesuvah? Is there a hidur to read the haftorah from a printed volume of navi? If one drinks liquid via a straw, does it change which bracha one recites? Chumash: Chayei Sara- Avraham buries Sara separate from the gentiles, because a Jew's life is different from the gentiles, either when alive, or dead.
