comment Why eat gebrochts on the 8th day?
"The simple reason for this is that the celebration of the eighth day is of rabbinic origin." This is definitively not a sufficient reason. If the reason is to show that it's only a Chumra, then why don't Israelis eat it on the 7th day? I don't understand this answer

comment No Hallel in the seder?
@Heshy Some say Nishmat and Hallel haGadol is for the optional fifth cup.

comment Are there unnecessary words in torah?
The question didn't ask about essential-ness. The only sense of necessary I can see being derived from the fact that they are all from HaShem is simply that HaShem as a necessary being chose for them to be there. This is not only pretty clearly not what the OP intended by the term, but also exceedingly trivial.

comment Why dont chabad say chasal sidur pesach?
@menachem Probably because the Seder is finished. Yom Kippur should influence everything you do that year, but no one keeps on fasting when it's done.

comment What's the deal with showering on yom tov?
@Dude The issue with the hot water heater is that it heats up new water when you take some out. And not everyone agrees squeezing water out of hair on your head is ever a problem, and especially on Yom Tov when סחיטה might not be Asur Mideoraita.

comment Do you have to eat bread meal(s) on every day of Chol HaMoed?
@Aaron My modern matza with cream cheese is delicious. Perhaps you're confusing "most modern matza" with people who don't eat Gebrokhs. In any event, where does the Rambam say this? And how is "baking" part of Simcha? How would you fulfill that on Shabbat Chol haMoed?

comment Should I follow the congregation if their view on prayers for Yom Ha'Atzma'ut is different than mine?
I don't see why Tachanun is an extra sad prayer. Maybe neutral.
