comment Can songs use the words from pesukim?
@CashCow You should ask your rabbi for personal psak and not rely on reports from this website.

comment Using Ethiopian oral law to resolve machloket
"since all the matters in the Babylonian Talmud were accepted by the entire Jewish people." Apparently not. Isn't that the whole premise of the question?

@Daniel "only have a tradition" Did you mean to say "only have a RECORDED tradition"? Why can't that mean that the other opinion was around just not recorded? And then how can you use that as proof of primacy?

@Daniel just because the talmud doesn't record a dissenting opinion doesn't mean it didn't exist. why should ethopians only recording one opinion mean ours didn't exist?

How about including your reasoning explicitly in the question? I'm still not sure why you think "on undisputed points in Talmud, we assume that they are correctly transmitted". We just assume that's how we should paskin.

comment Using Ethiopian oral law to resolve machloket
@Daniel So...their lack of dispute indicates that they transmitted the law better? I don't see why. All it indicates to me is that they paskined differently than we did.

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.

comment What didn't Ya'akov believe when his sons told him that Yosef was alive?
@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?
