comment From whence do we learn that the Torah does not mince words?
Thanks to the insightful comments (and DoubleAA's link to MonicaCellio's question), I think this question can safely be closed as a dupe of hers. Thank you all and tizku le'mitzwot!

comment From whence do we learn that the Torah does not mince words?
Given the clarification in my previous comment, do you think the question requires rewording?

comment From whence do we learn that the Torah does not mince words?
Perhaps I should reword the question. What I really meant to uncover is how we know that each word/pasuq in the Torah must be meaningful. Sure, it seems logical. But, do we have a source/tradition stating such?

comment Shmitah nowadays?
For one widely accepted poseq's view, see Yalqut Yosef's Qitzur Shulhhan Arukh, Yoreh De'ah 331:9 that "most posqim consider Shemitah today to be Mi'De'Rabbanan"

comment Standing for Kaddish at a shul with a different nusach
I've updated the Rav Jachter source to a more reliable one (the "Jewish Link of Bergen County" archive). It appears he did, in fact, rule in accordance with the bolded text in my answer.

comment Sefardic and Ashkenazic main halacha book for Even Haezer, Yoreh Deah and Choshen Mishpat?
Many Sefaradim today, to my knowledge, derive Halakhah LeMa'aseh from Yalqut Yosef which spans all four turim of Shulhhan Arukh.

comment May one wear a tallit gadol with all four corners in front?
While this is photographic evidence of the minhag, I'm ideally looking for written evidence from an Orthodox poseq.

comment How do we understand Moshe's rebuke
Fair point. I forgot to tie my answer to RaSh"Y. My answer, citing Orahh Hayim, does not really contradict RaSh"Y and, at the same time, dissolves questions #2 and #3 IMHO. Also, I'm assuming the question mark in your comment is commentary on my transliteration scheme. To each his own :)
