comment Why does Chabad do hakafot erev Shemini Atzeret
I just saw a note in the 'Shai LaMora' edition of the siddur ba'al ha-tanya that indicates you were mekhavein to the wording of an early edition: בסדור אדמוה"ז שנדפס בברדיטשוב בשנת תקע"ח הנוסחא "ותיקון". ויתכן שהוא לשון תקנה. וראה ספר השיחות ה'תש"ו-השי"ת עמוד 378, ובהתועדויות תשמ"ה חלק ה' עמ' 445.

comment Is there a chasidus that is makpid on dikduk?
@NBZ, I've been looking through Tzvi Tiferes and Tiferes Banim. Tiferes Banim is full of what seem to be typos in regard to dageish hazak: a lot are left out without rhyme or reason. Tzvi Tiferes, on the other hand, seems to be meticulously edited. There are also some differences between the two that are more substantial--differences in letters and vowels: Do you know why the Tiferet Banim editors would make changes like that? e.g, "ha-aderes ve-ha-emunah le-chey ha-olamim" vs. "le-chai olamim"

comment If I daven amida very slowly what do I do when the shatz reaches Kedusha?
But you're not allowed to interrupt the Amidah, and if you accept the principle of "shome'a ke-oneh", then it is as if you spoke the responses and you would be interrupting.

comment Did the Ramban say that mitzvos d'Rabbanan are only obligatory in the Land of Israel?
Sounds similar to Rashi on Devarim 11:18 (though there's no distinction made between rabbinic and biblical commandments): אף לאחר שתגלו היו מצויינים במצות, הניחו תפילין, עשו מזוזות כדי שלא יהיו לכם חדשים כשתחזרו. וכן הוא אומר הציבי לך ציונים

NBZ, aside from the grammatical markings, is the text in the new 'Tiferes Banim' siddurim the same as in Tzvi Tiferes? Also, do you know if Tiferes Banim includes Yamim Noraim amidot?

comment Why put Psalm 130 right before barchu?
There is an often-quoted statement: השח בין ישתבח לברכו עבירה היא בידו וחוזר עליה מעורכי המלחמה - One who speaks between Yishtabah and Barakhu has sinned and would be able to be evacuated from combat on account of the fear he carries regarding his guilt in this matter.
