comment Bishul Akum for Sefardim
R. Ovadia has a teshuvah on this that allows sephardim to eat at restaurants deemed kosher by ashkenazic leniencies. If I have the time I'll try to find it.

comment Why don't Sephardim read Kohelet on Sukkot?
@sam megillat taanit and megillat antiochos are two different megillot. It was antiochus that was read (only) by Italian Jewry: jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/10553-megillat-anteyokos

comment Is toothpaste an issue on Shabbat?
@Ramin: Yes, he follows a responsum from the Rambam to argue that when it's necessary, like in a hospital, it can certainly be used. It's best to avoid it, but "there is no basis to protest against those who use it in all cases." See Yalkut Yosef 326:13

comment Why do Sephardim perform kaparot?
So we're favoring acharonim over "one of the biggest of the Rishonim," the Rashba, because of kabbalalistic reasons? How does that make sense? Aren't we l'chumra when it comes to questionable practices of idolatry.

comment Sefaradi Hashkafa of Musar
@HachamGabriel If these aren't examples of Sephardi Mussar that you're looking for, you should define what you mean by Musar Hashkafa.
