comment Why different customs for daily and Shabbat Kedusha?
I haven't encountered the practice you describe. There's one opinion that the congregation only says the lines "kadosh", "barukh", and "yimklokh". There's another opinion that they say everything. But there's no distinction between Shabbat and weekday in either position.

comment Why do we say pesukim from Hoshea after donning tefillin?
p.s., the reason for the seemingly strange name of the book: it's an acronym for mezuza, tzitzit, tfillin- the mitzvot it discusses.

tried to correct the translation if the word hispa'alus. it doesn't refer to action (that would be pe'ulah).

comment Why does Chabad do hakafot erev Shemini Atzeret
yishai, I think the second word of that quote should be translated 'of ancient ones', i.e., it's an old custom... (rather than 'and a rectification' - reading 'vatikkin' not 've-tikkun').

comment Why were there 8 kings of Edom?
@rikitikitembo referred to in kabbalistic literature. If you google the phrase ז' מלכין קדמאין דמיתו you'll get some sources if you want them.

comment Why were there 8 kings of Edom?
The last king, Hadar, is not the same as the others: it is not mentioned that he died. Therefore, typically, this episode is referred to as the 7 primordial kings who died.
