voz is neias – “What’s news?”
chareidi define and define chareidi - There is an interesting wikipedia article about Hareidism and Chareidi Jews (also known as the Ultra-Orthodox or Heimish Jews)
http://rchaimqoton.blogspot.com – Why couldn’t you just put the URL of this site into the address bar of your browser and find it that way, why did you have to search the URL to find the site?
chug chasam sofer – This is the Israeli Yeshiva run by HaRav HaGaon Usher Weiss. I have on occasion met him and/or heard him speak. He’s very gishmak. It is also the name of a Kashrus organization in Eretz Yisroel.
reb chaim brisker – Also known as the Grach. See Chaim Soloveitchik.
chaim haqoton – The small Chaim. That’s who I am.
rchaimqoton - That’s my username and the first part of my URL.
pronunciation of chaim - I’m assuming you’re wondering about the first two letters. Sometimes it is written as H or the sound of the Ches is denoted with a dot inside an H. Or in plain Hebrew you can write it as ח. - It’s like the CH or KH in the word Ch/Khanuka, with a “ayim” at the end. Speaking of Chanukka…
Chanuka Terms (This essay)

chanukka nights of prayer – That’s exactly what Chanukka is. A time to pray to–more specifically to thank—g-d for his gracious help in the world.
chanuka baba batra - Are you referring to the story of Herod?
king herod mariamne honey – That’s the famous story on Bava Basra 3b mentioned in the essay in which Herod preserves her in honey. By the way, a person loses their status as a relative after death. Thus, technically there is nothing wrong halachikly with having sexually relations with a dead person who was forbidden to you when she was alive, however, I would think it falls under the issur of Lo Tishaqtzu or Kedoshim Tihyu.

kabbalistic Hanuka – Ask Madonna, Britney Spears, Ashton Kutcher, or Michael Burg.

eliezer brother of Mattathias – He was actually his son, if I remember correctly.
judith daughter Yochanan – Wasn’t that a cheesy story?
should noahides light a menorah – I don’t know. But that’s a good question. Do any of my readers know? (Do I even have any readers?)

rambam sefer hamitzvos principle 1 – This is when the Rambam (Rabbi Doctor Maimonides) describes authority that the Rabbis have in establishing new laws. Included in this section is Chanuka and the mitzvahs of Purim.
antigonus ish Socho – See Pirkei Avos in the first chapter.

Chanuka – The 25th of Kislev is when they rested, the Maccabbees led by Juda beat the Yevanim. Speaking of Judah the Maccabi…

tekufas teves and adam harishon – See the story in Avoda Zara 8a.
creation seven day maharal -- I’m not sure if this was for this essay or for the wine essay. Or both. That post was mentioned at http://southernblogfed.blogspot.com/2005/11/carnival-of-magnolias-iv.html and http://mirty12.blogspot.com/2005/11/haveil-havalim-45.html
