comment What do you say on a person's 120th birthday?
-It looks like it might not be regarded as a question- Since it is only "Normally, you wish someone Ad meah ve'esrim", just pick another wish. More importantly, where did this wish come from ? My Ra"m once told me that it has no profound source and we should rather wish people Ad meah ve'esrim ve'yoter (or somethnig like that) [Might be better to ask, Why do people assume you may only live up till 120]

comment Priorities: Tefillah & Tachanun vs Tefillah w/o
@DoubleAA I'll try to make it clearer. Mincha is 10 minutes before the earliest sunset in the week. Assuming we do have a minhag of not saying Tachanun after sunset, I didn't check if the Sh"tz actually finishes after, I remember being told that is the reason. Bottom line, there is never Tachanun in Mincha ketana there. Of course there is importance in saying it, but I didn't hear it is prioritized over a minyan w/o.

comment Priorities: Tefillah & Tachanun vs Tefillah w/o
@DanF Nothing wrong, I have never known I can say it by myself (and still,not saying is sort of the minhag I used to have). Now I'm simply interested to know if there is some sort of importance in having Tachanun.

comment Why does Rashi claim “מלקוש” is locust terminology like “לקש” if “לקש” isn't “locusts”? (תענית ו ע״א)
I guess it might does sound odd."דברי תורה עניים במקום אחד ועשירים במקום אחר". Rashi might have had several commentaries for the pasuk (P'shat,Remez...). In the bible he gave the more Pshat-like one. In the g'mara, a less Pshat-like yet corresponds the g'mara's D'rash one.

Isn't Rashi known to give the most suitable explanation regardless of other contradictory sources?

comment Do you need to make an additional blessing on yogurt eaten at the end of a bread meal?
I can see it now, I guess it was hard for me to understand your answer.

Cannot provide sources, but someone (whom I believe to have sufficient knowledge of 'Brachot') told me that you must always make a bracha on a dessert, EVEN if you had it in mind. The truly deciding factor is whether it is a part of your meal or something tasty you wanted to add.

comment G-d changing the past
@Fred R' Abarbanel relates to that Gemara as well. He explains the 'world' is a metaphor to the body which is a small world. The offer is to change his body conditions and nature in order for it to fit a different role. Left column,16 lines from below

Looks like you go towards the direction of something that G-d CAN do but probably never will.

comment Difference in Kedusha of Shemoneh Esrei between Nusach Ashkanaz and Nusach Sephard
@DoubleAA נקדישך has a feminine form in opposed to נקדש which has a male form. I don't, that is simply something notable.

comment Is allowed for a non tohor (unclean) person to read the Tanach?
Not detailed enough. Some people say only Torah doesn't get 'Tomah' yet for Tefillha you need Tvila. And there are opinions that it is -basically- allowed but it isn't the best to learn at that state, and you must promptly go to the mikva. No time atm. I'm more interested in where @mil got the idea a "Tamme" cannot learn Torah.

Wouldn't "respect and reverence for the synagogue and proper behavior" mean dressing modestly even if doesn't aplly to you?

Didn't know. I thought it was obviuosly so. guess I might be wrong, though I can think of several explanations for that gemra even if tsnius applies goyim

comment Instances where women wore tefillin
Would like to add regarding this question, if a woman did put tefillin, would she also put it on during Shabbat?

comment Is there a mitzvah to escort a non-Jew?
Kidush-hashaem? By the way, I did that once to a couple and they told me "God bless you". I'm pretty sure they were christian, would that be a problem of "ושם אלהים אחרים לא תזכירו לא ישמע על פיך" ?
