comment Why Mishna Berurah chooses chesronaM with a M in borei nefashos?
OK but how could someone argue with mishna berachos 44a where the nusach is clearly quoted with a nun ?

comment Bowing at Modim D'Rabbanan
Excuse my bad english but can you explain "Chayei Adam holds that this is primary" ? CA follows the Rama or the Maharshal or hold it it not essential ? thanks

comment Do Briskers use a particular siddur?
Correction : it was not siddur kol peh on the video but siddur kehilos yofi as we can see here at R' Dovid Soloveitchik shlita home s1.kikar.net/th/data/auto/addonsmgr/ts/… Btw still a standard nusach ashkenazi siddur

comment Do Briskers use a particular siddur?
Look at this video of Rav Dovid Soloveitchik shlita, you can see the classic kol peh siddur in the background : youtube.com/watch?v=rxgUCmFRvW4 Also I think Briskers dont respect kol peh nusach word by word, it let me think that there is no "brisker siddur". As many people they may use a siddur but have their own specifics here and there while davening

In fact this question is a duplicate with the link I mentionned so it is why I've just post the link. Both offer good answers.

comment Calculation methods for intermediate time of chanukah lighting
1/ if 4 mil is 50 min, 3/4 mil is (50/4 x 3/4) = 9.375 then rounded up (to the minute) = 10 minutes 2/ see gemara Shabbat 34b, night time is calculated as equal to the time it takes to walk 3/4 of a "mil" after sunset and it's the shitta of the Geonim and the GR"A

comment Why put on Tefillin shel yad halfway?
an interesting point I learn while searching information on the way one wraps the retzuos around the middle finger : the Brisker practice to wrap around the finger before starting on the tefillah shel rosh (see Hilchos HaGra uminhag siman 38, Teshuvot Vehanhagot 1:38 and 4:10 from Rav Sternbuch shlita)

comment Is it better to wear wool tzitzis?
The assertion that some ashkenazim wear cotton tallis katan because of heat always surprise me. It is known that sephardic wear wool talis katan albeit north african / middle east heats beat widely american or european ones. So I really don't understand this argument...
