comment Why did Hashem create the world in such a way that a leap year is needed?
@DanF - you don't think it's possible to create a model that the moon cycles are an exact fraction of the sun's cycle? IOW the lunar cycle could have been 30.4.. days long instead of 29.5... days long.

comment response to barachu vs candles, in bringing shabbat in early?
"Borchu" is the start of Friday night davening. Once you answer Borchu you're essentially saying "it's now Friday night and hence it's Shabbat." Nothing magical or mystical.
