comment Uman for Rosh Hashanah?
In earlier times, the pilgrimage to Uman was undertaken largely by chassidim, mostly Breslovers. Now, since it has become quite a large pilgrimage, it attracts very diverse group of people. It's become so large that it's almost possible to go to Uman and not have a Breslov Rosh Hashanah. Uman didn't always look like Woodstock on Rosh Hashanah.

comment Polyphasic Sleep and Halacha
@Isaac Moses: of course. This is kind of a big life change and seems complicated from a Halachic point of view, to say the least.

@simchashatorah Indeed! When I found this, everything made sense to me about how the Vilna Gaon was able to do it.

There's a bracha on the wash for tefila? Do you mean al netilas yadayim in the morning?

My Zmanim app for my phone (using the library provided by KosherJava) calculates Chatzos Halayla and Chatzos Hayom as being 12:46 am and pm, respectively.

So, in any case, chatzos halayla would be caculated as being six halachic hours into the night?

I didn't mean to stir up controversy, I was only trying to get something older. I appreciate @Avrohom Yitzchok's answer, as he brings both the Gemara and SA and Mishnah Berurah. Also, so is it necessary to make brich rachamana d'hai before eating and then make brich rachamana d'zan after eating? I'm somewhat confused by it.
