comment Why does “elokeynu” frequently follow “hashem” in tanach?
@AniYodea I don't know why you say "there are none": this answer says there are some. Anyway, no, no being has ever had power not granted him by God.

comment Can non-Biblical figures be considered prophets?
The other question is asking whether there are prophets today. This question is asking whether a leader today can be a prophet. Those seem exactly the same to me, except that the other question allows for non-leader prophets and this one only wants to know if there are leader prophets. Unless I'm missing something.

@Loewian That seems like a duplicate to me. No?

comment Why no ashrei in maariv?
@Fred I meant the OU itself. Let's continue this in chat if you wish to continue it.

comment Why no ashrei in maariv?
The counterexamples noted by @DoubleAA seem strong; the example of shacharis, where one "Ashre" suffices for the first two k'dusha recitals but not for the third, seems weak. But these questions are, I guess (I haven't yet followed the link), on the OU, not on you. +1 for an answer that cites an authority directly on point.

The minimum length is to ensure that you've incorporated things like background information on the topic, motivation for your asking, or evidence of your claims. Not so you can circumvent the minimum by adding an unnecessary sentence.

comment Why ever rely on a vav hahipuch?
When you say "deeper" -- will you be satisfied with "that's just the way Hebrew is: it uses vav hahipuch under circumstances A, B, and C" (delineating the circumstances and citing a grammar book)?

comment Difference in Kedusha of Shemoneh Esrei between Nusach Ashkanaz and Nusach Sephard
@Zeev I see no feminine word in the first line of any version of k'dusha I'm familiar with. And, anyway, how do you know that's what's bothering Yehoshua (the OP)?
