Isn't there some Midrash about Avraham being the first person to age in appearance?

comment Why the difference between Tishrei and Nissan for tachanun?
Are you asking why we don't skip Tachanun during Aseret Yemei Teshuva, or why some do say Tachanun after Sukkot?

@Dude It mentions it. That doesn't mean you should talk about it...

comment Okay to address a rabbi with “you”?
@Dude Thou, thee and thy are actually the familiar forms of the second person pronoun. You and your are traditionally much more formal.

comment Why not say tachanun until 2 Cheshvan?
@NS23 Ok so you should phrase it as "According to the Rambam we should say Tachanun on a few more days than most people do." You make it sound like there is some grand argument going on here.

comment Why not say tachanun until 2 Cheshvan?
We (traditional Judaism) do say tachanun almost everyday.

comment Why not say tachanun until 2 Cheshvan?
Who estimates that it took 5-7 days? The Talmud estimates that it took 14 days. That's why they delayed asking for rain until 7 Marcheshvan.

I have never heard of an "inyan" of adding to shmini atzeret. Has anyone else? What other application does this "inyan" have?

comment When do you say Hashem sefatai?
Everything but your last sentence seems irrelevant. What is your basis for insisting that it be said after the steps are complete?

comment Why the difference between Tishrei and Nissan for tachanun?
@Matt No he isn't. 1,2,9 Tishrei and 11 Tishrei to 23 Tishrei and 30 Tishrei is 17 days.

comment What is the evidence that the Rabbis changed Shabbat from sunrise saturday to sunset friday?
Are you asking or telling? I thought you wanted to know what his evidence was. I certainly don't see any evidence (or scholarship for that matter) in that essay.

I don't what evidence there is for that proposition, but Lev 23:32 certainly seems to oppose it. It is well established in Halacha though that regarding the Temple the night follows the day (Temura 14a, Chullin 83a) but this just means that offerings on a certain day had the through the following night to be consumed/offered. (Note that even though one is permitted to offer them the following night, it is not considered "it's appropriate time" מצוה בשעתה to do so) There is no evidence that I know of that they had a different Temple calendar

comment Age of Universe and Shabbat
There's no "how can" or "how come". It's "how do we understand".

comment I saw someone claim that, “In Zohar of Pinchos, that an Eishes Ish is לזר מותרת if her husband allows.”?
@user6591 I believe there is an entry on Kabbalah but I've never seen one on Kabbalah bashing.
