comment Is there a time limit for Borei Nefashos and Beracha Me'en Shalosh?
@Scimonster It's also equal to 1/10 of a day. Again, not sure why that would be relevant.

@WhoKnows You can read about setting bounties here. Do note that I am in no need of extra reputation. (The link before was just sharing the other time I was the topic of a question here. Maybe someday I'll get my own tag :))

@Yishai ok, but does halacha recognize that as a valid haarama?

comment Why didn't Noach look out the window?
חרב can mean dry too. That's why חורב is in a desert and the Jews walked through the sea בחרבה.

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?
