comment Ayin Hara - The evil eye - Hocus Pocus
My Rosh Yeshiva says it works but you should only do it with certain Sadikim. He quoted Rav Mordechai Eliyahu to do every 2 or 3 months.

comment What kind of matza should I buy?
Rav Aviner also thinks it's fine for ashkenazim. See HaRav Asher Weiss's opinion differs a little.

comment Sefaradi Hashkafa of Musar
I know there are Sefaradi Sefarim on Musar. I'm asking for an entire philosophy of life, not just specific topics.

comment Sefaradi Hashkafa of Musar
@Fred Hamaspik is a very interesting Sefer Derech Agav. It's an interesting Derech in Avodat Hashem.

comment Sefaradi Hashkafa of Musar
There are a million books of Musar, but not Musar Hashkafa. The only thing close to what I wanted is Pele Yoetz but there is not enough information on each topic for my liking.

@sam that's not an entire Hashkafa that's a section of Hadracha in some topics of life.

@sam that's a good answer but I'm looking for more.

comment Sefaradi Hashkafa of Musar
@Ramin you're not mistaken but that's not an entire Hashkafa that's a section of Mussar which applies to everyone. The Chassidim and the Litvish have an entire Hashkafa.

comment Are there sources that any minute not learned Torah is a sin?
I can't believe that aren't at least a few answers already. BN I'll be back to answer.

comment Can I use a Lulav or Esrog from last year?
@Fred bring one of those Aharonim and that sounds like an answer (or at least 1/4 of an answer).
