comment Ana B'choach - Private prayer or Sing-Along song?
@eramm, Thank you for your concern, and I will take your comment as a polite interest in how I justify not saying "Ana B'koach" while everyone else does. I am of German ("Yekkish") descent, and the German custom is to not say Ana B'koach (among other things, such as B'rich Sh'meih). That I don't say it is similar to an Ashkenazic person not saying the Sefardic additions to various prayers whilst attending a Sefardic shul, which is quite justified according to many poskim.

comment Aside from the days set aside for impurity, what exactly is a man allowed to do with his wife in regards to intimacy?
"The Torah states that if a woman experiences an usual flow, she needs to wait for it to end, and then count seven clean days." -- Actually, if we're calling dam nida the "usual flow", the Torah states (Lev. 15:19) that she merely needs to wait seven days total (assuming she's clean by the end of them). Only for the unusual flow (dam ziva) must she ever count seven clean days (Lev. 19:28).

comment Is the bracha pronounced “ha-MO-tzee” or “ha-mo-TZEE”?
@DoubleAA, That bothers me every single time I hear the song. Also "hu nosein leCHEM l'chol basar..."

Nasog Achor before a shva na is a sometimes-yes-sometimes-no situation.

comment S'feika D'yoma in Niddah
@DoubleAA, I am curious, however, how women in chutz laaretz behaved in the times of the Sanhedrin. I suppose the answer to that question is related to the answer to this one.
