comment Why not say tachanun until 2 Cheshvan?
@DoubleAA I don't know about others, but Chabad only says Tachanun where it says so in the Machzor. It won't say it By Krias Shma SheAl Hamitta, for example.

comment Has Judaism succeeded or failed at being a light unto the nations?
How many places didn't hear of "The Bible" or of the Koran (both of whom were influenced by us). See Rambam at the end of Hilchos Melachim

comment How do we learn “Taamei HaMitzvos”?
@DoubleAA At least most of the time they admit that the reasons are either spiritual and can't be taken literally, or not the true, not the true and complete reason, or say that one should follow Kabbalah over the Halacha. I understood that the Rambam held the reasons given are the full and complete reasons for the Mitzvos and didn't like "super rational" explanations. I want to know what he did with the contradictions.

comment Why is Rosh Hashana two days in Jerusalem?
The rest of Israel could also have Sefeika Deyoma (They couldn't reach Teverya within a day, even if they were allowed to violate Techum).

comment Why were the Tanayim and Amoraim so easily offended?
It doesn't explain the other two cases (where there wasn't an official vote before ending the dispute)

comment Why don't the kohanim chant in Israel?
Probably because people are running to work, so they don't have time to sing.

But those "insulting" them were the same Torah scholars as them!!

comment Chabad Houses singing Yedid Nefesh before Kabalash Shabbos
I think we do it to accommodate those who do. Proof is that in we don't do it in 770 or Anash minyanim.
