comment The Meaning behind the Kaf
Please note: The double yud for Hashem's name is an orthographic "abbreviation" or reference to the Tetragrammaton. There were other old conventions that looked like 3 yuds (or even 2 yuds and a lamed?).

comment What do Jews think angels look like?
@MoriDoweedhYaa3gob (At the risk of sounding Humean,) so are all visual experiences. If you want to argue that they don't have stable physically apparent form that is fine, but the questioner is specifically asking how they are seen and portrayed. I think pinning down forms that angels have been known to appear in is exactly the way to answer this question.

comment What do Jews think angels look like?
@MoriDoweedhYaa3gob That also does not preclude their having shapes or appearances. In fact, what you said lends credence to their having given appearances, and even meaningfulness behind those appearances.

You mean wells? I think that is what מוצא means in the parenthetical pasuk.

comment Why is the blessing of Mezonos not mentioned in the Mishnah?
Could it be categorized like the other b'rachos in that mishna? It seems it would be more complicated.

comment Is there an aversion to having Gentiles in the synagoge and why?
The main question is "Why am I not welcomed?" You make a good point as to why user4579 should be welcomed. This strengthens the question.

I think this is a great corroboration of the question, but not an answer.
