comment Does salad require al netilat yadayim?
@Jake That sounds highly suspect.

comment May I rely on the shaliach tzibur to fullfill my mitzvah of tefilah, even if I know how to pray?
@IsaacMoses So what? It's a proper subset. Any valid answer to the other question would necessarily deal with that issue (ie who can use the Shatz).

dupe? judaism.stackexchange.com/q/48698/759 You just asked this. Also, the accepted answer there gives four reasons not two, none of which is "minhag".

@Jake That doesn't make it incorrect. I said the details are essentially correct.

@Jake That is really a separate question. The details of this answer are essentially correct AFAICT. Perhaps it could be organized and presented better.

comment minhag means law? when in shulchan aruch
@hazoriz That is obviously preposterous fundamentally, even if it is correct that it is unlikely Ashkenaz will ever completely abandon its Minhagim.

comment minhag means law? when in shulchan aruch
@hazoriz user6591 I think custom and law were being clearly contrasted in the question. Hence, law are things which are not determined by custom. Law may obligate me to not violate a custom, but when a custom changes the practical application does too. But no custom can allow eating pig, for instance.

I don't see how this answers the question. Customs can be halachically binding but not law.
