comment Song while dressing the Torah
@DoubleAA i just don't know the community's def of that tag. I assumed tefilla was actually about prayer. This is just liturgy. Nusach makes sense to me, but if the community thinks tefilla includes this, that's fine

@DoubleAA I'm not sure this is "tefilla" per se, but I'll go with it since you're the mod.

comment Is there a spiritual meaning to wearing a Kippah?
@ba As I recall, the story ends with his kippah being blown off and he reaches across a fence and takes an apple from his neighbor. But that proves the story proves that covering your head was the exception not the rule

comment May converts migrate to Israel?
Just about anyone can migrate to Israel. That simply involves moving there. Do you mean if converts can make aliyah under the Law of Return?

comment Why did Moses send spies who were leaders?
....maybe the difference between Moshe and Yehoshua was that the former cared about public opinion and the latter didn't care whatsoever. Low self-esteem does that. So does creating a new role.

comment Why did Moses send spies who were leaders?
stopping the sun is a pretty big miracle. But can you provide sources for your claims of Moshe's motivations?

@MonicaCellio so you think this was a PR move to Canaan, and ShuelBrin thinks it's a PR move to am yisrael.

@ShmuelBrin I don't buy it. Ploni Alamoni isn't afraid of Moshe but Shammua ben Zacur is?
