comment What is the proper way to wrap a tallis?
@yoel Source? The rama writes that al mitzvas tzitzis was made up so that people wouldn't say a bracha levatalla of lisateif when they wore talis katans that were too small (DM OC 8). Now you say it's a separate mitzva? Which pasuk exactly tells us this mitzva of wrapping? If wrapping is a separate mitzva, why don't we do it for longer than 4 seconds, especially considering we're already doing the wearing mitzva under our shirts? Yours is not at all the response I was expecting.

comment Sitting or Standing for Kaddish - historical divergence between Conservative and Orthodox minhag
@MichaelWeiss It could also make sense (and I think this was the intention) if including all cases of kaddish: those said alone and those said together.

Also, in your linked question, only the lowest voted answer makes any reference to mourning. The question and other answers deal with all kaddishes.

It seems you've never been to a Sephardic Orthodox synagogue.

comment What is the proper way to wrap a tallis?
@ichangedmyid So you mean that there is one mitzva of enwrapping which we say a bracha on but only perform briefly, and another mitzva of wearing which we do not say a bracha on and do for extended periods of time, and coincidentally always after performing the mitzva of enwrapping?

Source for the requirement to wrap differently for the blessing? If you fulfill the mitzva the regular way of wearing it, why can't you say a blessing on that?

@HachamGabriel When I pray, I hope God answers me. When I separate Ma'aser, I expect God to answer me.

Even accepting this as an 'official' publication, can anyone confirm that it actually claims what the op says it does?

comment Is sushi Muktzeh?
@SethJ Isn't all raw fish food then? I don't really do sushi, but would a sushi eater go to order a fresh piece of raw fish from the fish counter at the grocery and eat it? Or at least, find it somewhat enjoyable, though a little bland? Or is sushi fist special somehow?
