comment Are there required “ritual/daily” prayers in Judaism?
I'm a little confuse on Halacha 4 "Consequently, when someone would pray, he would be limited in his ability to request his needs or to praise the Holy One, blessed be He, in Hebrew, unless other languages were mixed in with it. When Ezra and his court saw this, they established eighteen blessings in sequence." ..... is this saying that G-d only hears Hebrew?

so, these prayers were established as a minimum after 586 BCE to help the people? Is this because the temple was destroyed?

when you say "viewed as obligatory", does this mean if not recited exactly as written then you are in error? Or, does this mean that it's a obligation to pray at these specific times?

@DoubleAA, no, more as to are these prayers of Judaism a part of a ritual, or are they just daily praises and prayers like King David did? So, if - in Judaism - if one misses a prayer are they in sin?

comment Why didn't Yehoshua give a good report immediately?
@SethJ, agreed. I do see it - although I may be wrong - being presented to Moshe, Aharon, and kehal "like" testimony in a court of law, but it does seem that the spies were evil in the sense that they doubted G-d being able to deliver the land to them. Did G-d consider their testimony as true? It seems that G-d was displeased. Is this correct?

@HodofHod, thank you. Sorry if this is another simple question, but why you say Oral Torah are you saying the Laws given to Moses at Sinai? or, are you speaking of the Gezayrot ?

thank you for your answer. So, with your example of the Constitution - which is being trampled upon and torn apart by 'mans' interpretation and rules and methods of investigation of it's meaning - can rabis (not trying to offend by any means , just a question) misinterpret the Torah. Also, why do you say the Torah cannot be understood?

well, really my questions foundation has to do with is it a necessity to study the writings of different rabbis in order to understand the law? if one does not have the luxury of being brought up by a rabbi or if one does not have the luxury of their writings does this nullify their ability to understand? Also, I have questions about learning Hebrew. always Thanks you for your advice
