Awesome answer and source reference. So far it has greatly helped me to start with those three as my foundation and to add as much as I can to that. Agreed on hodu as well, of course seeing that it is so beautiful but definitely a difficult piece for starting out. Thanks again

comment What is the “Minimum” of beliefs to be considered Orthodox?
@BabySeal. Thank you. I was actually hoping you might say something to that effect. However, is it possible to live as an Orthodox Jew (performing mitzvot, studying Torah, Talmud, etc.) and yet believing that they are human creations and an aspect of socio-religious development)? As well, in DoubleAA's defense, belief's have consequences and one who doesn't act on his beliefs has a questionable commitment to those beliefs.

comment What is the “Minimum” of beliefs to be considered Orthodox?
@DoubleAA, the way I see the binding of mitzvot is that it is the (active) conclusion resulting from a belief, that belief having to do more directly with Orthodoxy's view of the Talmud, of which I am not fully certain about.

comment How was Moses able to speak to at least 600,000 people?
@GregoryMagarshak. Love the question. Love the insight. It is a really great point, considering the fact that some apologists use the idea of a "national revelation" to defend Judaism as though it is intrinsically a different category of revelation. However, although the argument is great, there is no way to prove it. However, personally, I figured these statements were shorthand and he probably had people "passing the word" back as he spoke. Not sure...

comment Is there a requirement to join a Minyan?
@Daniel, is there a way the question could be reformulated to be clearer? I thought you were asking if there are certain requirements to join a minyan, like being a male, etc.

comment What is a Literal Translation of Asher Yatzar?
I should've though of that, as I already knew about the Torah convention. Thank you for reminding me. I recall someone mentioning this about Isaiah 6.3: קָדוֹשׁ קָדוֹשׁ קָדוֹשׁ as intending not only 3 times holy but triple holy (aka, the holiest)
