comment Is the Koren Sacks Nusach Sefard truly nusach ha'Ari?
@Izmargadi So if I found a 1600s siddur from Tzfat in the Spanish nusach, you'd consider that the closest thing to Isaac Luria's nusach? I think the best way to answer your underlying question is to study Lurianic Kabbalah with a teacher.

@DoubleAA That's information I didn't have. Then a list will do. I'd like a starter, but ideally Ashkenazi.

If memory serves me, I think those are the same nights you are not supposed to drink water.

comment Research Project on How the Revival of the Hebrew Language Led to Jewish Nationalism
Did you end up finding some good sources? My instinct is that the causality happened in the other direction, but I'd love to hear the case for this direction!
