comment Tu B'shvat Seder
@msh210 it is a common practice in synagogues and schools to have what is known as a Tu b'Shavat Seder. You drink 4 cups of wine and eat fruits and say brachot. There are a lot of variants to the Seder and no one seems to do it the same way, thus at least part of the question.

BTW in the Jewish Press this week there is an article about the last 20 years of Techelet, I have not read it yet, but I noticed it.

Don't these definitions seem to repeat themselves, so how do I differentiate?

comment Proper age to take a child to Shul
(Note: My girls do not go to shul. My Rebbi's wife said that "in Europe", the girls only went to shul for Shabbas Kallah. In addition, this promotes the problem of kids being around the shul as the wife feels she has to go to shul.) I completely disagree, why should the woman feel she has to go to shul, shouldn't she be going? I take offense to this.
