comment Changing location mid-way during Shemoneh Esrei?
@TimBiegeleisen Thanks, but it seems this only discusses when people “pause” in Shemoneh Esrea - not actually walk and change location, which I feel is more of an interruption?! Or may be not? Nonetheless, is change of location qualified anywhere?

comment How to assemble the Lulav, Hadas & Arava — According to the Sephardim Minhagim?
Thanks Aryeh, however the main question I want to know is on each side, we have a hadas and aravah. But which is placed “on top” of each other. Is the hadas placed on top, i.e. I’ve heard this is to subdue the aravah -- or is it the other way round. As I noted in the referenced I gave, it seems to contradict each other, so I was not sure which is correct. When I say “on top” I don’t mean higher or lower. I know the prevalent custom is to have the hadas higher. But the question is, which is placed “on top” of each other, when binding it altogether. Thanks!

comment Sephardi Minhag of Boy Taking Maftir at Age 9
Thanks Avrohom. Just wondering, any chance we’ve got access to the English versions of these sources; or at least the SA/MB?

comment Is there a way to tell if a Pitom of an Etrog has been broken, or was grown that way?
@yehuda But if you see the comment from Fred, he seems to suggest there are some that “naturally” lose their pitom. In any case, if it doesn’t make a difference when it fell off, then what is the point of the hair test? I.e. what is it supposed to determine?

Just to clarify: when you say “fallen-off” you mean it broke after harvest? (i.e. pasul). Or, it had “naturally” fallen-off? (i.e. kosher). Also, if you happen to have a source for this would be good!
