comment What Other Terms, Besides “Korban,” Mean Sacrifice in Some Form or Another?
@msh210. Just any related to Judaism and its sources. I.e., in English we know the difference between, "he's so sacrificial" and "he sacrificed his cat" because of context (although either, esp. the latter, could have variable meanings). More ambiguous would be the common phrase "he makes daily sacrifices." Does that mean he sacrifices animals daily, gives something up every day, or is selfless, or...? Thus, it would help to have more than one English word. I know very little about Hebrew, but want to learn, and this is a particular subject that interests me.

@DoubleAA. How can I narrow it down? It's a single question?

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.
