comment Sukka - can walls extend past the schach
I was commenting on the words I quoted from your answer, just because I thought the point about the edge needed clarification.

comment Looking for a word with a distinct meaning driven by mesorah
Not sure where you draw the line, but how about k'ruv (the noun) or n-f-sh (the verb)?

comment Sukka - can walls extend past the schach
...**if the wall is at the edge of the schach**... Please note that gud asik allows short walls to extend up to s'chach, but not up to mid-air. It is easier to "connect" s'chach to real walls than to the imaginary extensions thereof by way of lavud. I.e. If real s'chach is very close but not overhanging real walls, lavud says that they connect anyway. Whereas if it is only close but not overhanging gud asik extensions, lavud doesn't work. [Citation needed and all, but please CYLOR.]

comment Sukka - can walls extend past the schach
Although the law won't change, it would help you get a more complete answer if you specify what material you are using for s'chach, how much coverage you already have, and where the beams attach to the walls.

comment What is the best online English translation of Tanach?
Unfortunately, without even scrutinizing the translation, the version linked fails on criterion #2. In between each verse there are HTML formatting elements, containers for translation and commentary, etc. This makes it very hard to copy more than a verse at a time. I guess I didn't know about Sefaria 4 years ago. . .

comment ALL Names of God
@WadCheber 7 out of the 8 lines are just names. Although many of them are very descriptive names, it would be incredibly difficult - and possibly self-defeating - to translate them. It starts off, "...corresponding to the 70 people who entered Egypt, and the 70 nations, and the 70 names of the holy one...".

@IsaacKotlicky If you have a source for your last part that could be a good answer.

comment Does the proximity rule for hand washing water extend to b'racha precedence?
The only reason for delaying the bread is the slight annoyance of walking away and washing. Indeed I would eat the bread right now if I'd already washed. Your question is my question.
