@Shalom - I am searching for the text or a citation, but meanwhile I assume it is whatever they are selling here: rashbbi.com/…

I can't help but note that this is a machlokes tana'im here: hebrewbooks.org/shas.aspx?mesechta=20&daf=37&format=pdf

comment Asher Yotzar - What type of Bracha is it?
Is there any reason to believe a b'racha of the form of asher yatzar would be a birkas hamitzva? I heard a shi'ur once that the context of the text of the prototype for the b'racha, where it appears in maseches Nida relates it to giving birth and it may therefore be linked to shevach and especially hoda'a.

comment Is there a single syntactic class “פעיל” in Biblical Hebrew?
@Dave - Thanks for the link. It looks like the definition I am looking for. Do all of the words listed (even the ones I assume to be nouns) fit Gesenius' definition? I shortened the question in an attempt to make it more clear.

Interesting, but why write Hashem's name out there at all?

comment Wearing a Kittel at the Seder
Not having a copy of the הגדה in question, I was taught in the name of that same נצי"ב that it was specifically the one bringing the קרבן (one per חבורה) who would wear special clothing and therefore only the "leader" (or exactly one other person perhaps) wears one in modern times as well.
