comment BT emailing non-observant family on Friday afternoon
Makes sense. But I'm still looking for a source that there is, in fact, a problem of "lifnei iver".

comment BT emailing non-observant family on Friday afternoon
The source you provided stated that is permitted. But, your final statement is that it is indeed forbidden. Can you provide a source for your final statement which contradicts the Ohr Somayach source?

comment Do we know more about נבח?
The last sentence is my recap of Rav Mansour's derashah.

comment Do we know more about נבח?
If YEZ prefers, our answers can be merged. Whatever makes the most sense.

comment Do we know more about נבח?
I just realized that, explicitly, this only addresses the second part of the question (i.e. "why does the Torah give so little information"). Implicitly, though, I think it addresses the first part too (i.e. "do we know anything else about Novach").

comment What is the importance of the tallit during prayer?
One practical difference in wearing a tallit gadol, especially over one's head, during prayer is that it blocks out noise and movement thereby allowing the person praying to concentrate better.

comment May one wear a tallit gadol with all four corners in front?
Also, for those interested, I've traced what may be the origin of the above quoted pesaq to Shulhhan Arukh -> Ba'al HaTurim -> Ba'al HaItur. Ba'al HaItur (c. 1190) is, so far, the oldest source I can find supporting the still prevalent custom of wearing two tzitziyot in front and two in back. Sadly, it still doesn't resolve my question. See footnote 46 here referencing this Ba'al HaItur.

Also, I apologize if this is insulting, but I don't see how this answers my question. I'm looking for a source, if one exists, to support the Teimani (and others') custom.

Thanks @MoriDoweedhYaa3qob, those are interesting, but I'm still unable to find any written source permitting such a custom.

FYI, I already included QS"'A Y"Y in the question. So I'm aware of what S"A says.

comment May one wear a tallit gadol with all four corners in front?
My question is if any Orthodox poseq permits wearing a tallit gadol in such a manner. Therefore, I don't think your answer answers the question.

Apologies if it wasn't stated clearly enough (and feel free to edit the question), but I'd like to know if any traditional source considers this type of wearing eligible for fulfilling one's requirement.

Thanks for the creative insights, Dan! Any chance you have a source for the second rationale?

comment Is a convert free to choose his own minhagim?
I recommend adding to the answer the assumption that the person is living in Israel where HaRav 'Ovadiah A"H states that Shulhhan Arukh is the leading authority.
