comment How to proceed when there was no Minyan to begin with?
My Rav said I should send this question to Rabbi Zilberstein in Israel and see what he says. I plan on doing so and placing his answer over here when received.

comment How to proceed when there was no Minyan to begin with?
I spoke to a Rav this morning, asking him if your answer is correct. He said perhaps, however most likely even after giving the Sefer Torah to the minor, the entire Shemona Esrei has to be repeated.

comment Are there any recent statistics showing the “marriage longevity” rate for shidduch arranged marriages?
@Daniel: That article is bunk. The divorce rate is definitely higher than 4% by arranged marriages.

comment How to proceed when there was no Minyan to begin with?
@Lee: Yes my question is only B'dieved. Lchatchila one does not start without a Minyan. If there is a Minyan to begin with and one left in the middle Shulchan Aruch discusses this. As to why this is a problem, I think it is clear what the problem is.

comment Making Kiddush Hoshanah Rabah morning
Welcome Alex F: Thanks for bringing your question to this site. I have never heard of anyone making Kiddush prior to the Seuda on Hoshana Raba. I looked through the Nitei Gavriel, who is pretty thorough with all different Minhagim and he does not mention anything about this. When did this Minhag start? Did your father's father do this?

comment Do I need to wear a different tallit katan when I sleep?
@DoubleAA: I reread my answer and I do not understand your comment. Who says that it's preferable to wear a beged that's exempt from tzitzis?

@DoubleAA: and many other letters are duplicated there.

comment תעבנו, תעינו, תעתענו Why three things that begin with a ת?
@DoubleAA: That one is missing Daled & Ches. In addition since it is broken into stanzas there was a need for add ons at the end to make it a complete stanza. By Ashamnu there is no such need.

comment תעבנו, תעינו, תעתענו Why three things that begin with a ת?
My question was inspired by Danno's question judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/64140/… and a possible thought was - that perhaps the last 2 words are different somehow.
