comment Anyone who says these people sinned is mistaken. For real?
@jake Abarbanel does seem to agree at the beginning of his commentary, listing all the possible sins but then he goes through, and through the use of other commentators and his own shows that David possibly did not sin.

comment Brachot on Tzitzit
@msh210 according to the answer on the linked question the Tallit Katan is put on with a bracha and then when you go to shul the Tallit also gets a bracha. Therefore, why do we not say a bracha when re-dawning the Tallit Katan?

Then why the repetition of the language, wouldn't the last, all embracing express be enough?

comment The custom of adding a candle for each child
@msh210 After looking at that question (which didn't come up when I wrote the question) this seems much more specific and directed then that rather general question.

comment Dibur HaMatchil: Where did it come from
Just to play devil's advocate, that doesn't really mean it has to come from Rashi, it just means who ever wrote it can be learned from.
