comment Why is the Lubavitch custom to have short Peoth?
@avi It is a very old picture. I don't doubt it is not 100% as accurate as a photograph would have been, but I have a hard time accepting that he just happened to have bushy hair around his ears.

comment Why doesn't the hagadah discuss miracles?
Rabbi Yosi the Gallilean said: How do you know that the Egyptians were stricken by ten plagues in Egypt, and then were struck by fifty plagues at the sea? In Egypt it says of them, "The magicians said to Pharaoh This is the finger of G-d.' At the sea it says, "Israel saw the great hand that the L-rd laid against Egypt; and the people feared the L-rd, and they believed in the L-rd and in His servant Moses." Now, how often were they smitten by the finger'? Ten plagues! Thus you must conclude that in Egypt they were smitten by ten plagues, at the sea they were smitten by fifty plagues!

"The L-rd took us out of Egypt," not through an angel, not through a seraph and not through a messenger. The Holy One, blessed be He, did it in His glory by Himself!

comment Bowing during Barechu
Some Ashkenazim remain seated but only rise slightly, although, I believe, most stand upright and then bow fully as in Shemoneh 'Esreh. At least that's what I've observed.
