comment Using Ethiopian oral law to resolve machloket
@Daniel Why would you think that is indicated...unless you somehow trust their transmission better? My previous comment was charitably designed to make your question sensible. If you are not assuming that then I don't know what you thinking.

Why assume they transmitted the law more perfectly than we did?

comment Learning Torah on Christmas
It is a huge Mitzva (on the order of all other Mitzvot combined) to learn Torah on Christmas (Mishna Peah 1:1). Anyone who says it isn't probably doesn't count in a Minyan.

@Matt Yes, that is what would be seeming if the carts are merely arbitrary.

comment What to do in a case of no siddur available and additions to the Shemoneh Esrei?
He should still do the mila and skip the brachot. But I could not deduce that from logic, nor could I deduce from that what to do in the OP's case where the obligation to pray is also rabbinic and the relevant insert can reasonably be construed as deriving from the very same obligation.

Maybe the obligation to mention chanuka only comes into play once he's praying. So he can avoid mevatelling it by not praying? You're completley making up categories to "derive" the conclusion you want. Nothing you have said is compelling.

I didn't say it was a lechatchilah. Neither is lechatchilah. But how do you know just using logic which is the better bedieved?

I don't know why that is logical. Maybe it isn't worth putting yourself in a bedieved situation of having to skip it. Shev v'al Taaseh.

comment What makes something a chag or not?
So you made up that the friend conflated Yom Tov and Chag, and then criticized him for doing so? Doesn't seem very fair.

Straight forward? Tikkunei Zohar Chadash is basics? Yom Tov is Chag? Where do you come up with this stuff?
