comment Tefillin right before sunset
@user6591 Right. They could resolve it though in the traditional manner. One Shkiya. Two Tzeits.

comment Tefillin right before sunset
@user6591 I didn't say time zones or france had anything to do with it. He knew the gemaras. He "knew" the world was flat. So he gave "good" pshat.

comment Tefillin right before sunset
@user6591 Is that a joke? There's no way any respectable posek would suggest that. RT himself would already think the Tefillin that bear his name are pasul judaism.stackexchange.com/q/12772/759 The fact that he had a wacky notion of when night starts because he thought the world was flat shouldn't affect his opinions about what order the parshiyot are in.

comment How to carry something with a shinuy
@Bachrach44 No one is talking about Muktza here. The question was about Hotzaah. (And that's not a shinui, per se, as much as kilachar yad.)

comment Variations on Al Hanisim
Textual variants of the Siddur have nothing to do with why Jews should not sing anti-Jewish songs like that, ch"v. Jews sing Psalms 106:2 with pride. We don't bastardize it to erase God from our tradition.

Note Chabad's differences in Nusach are not solely to account for grammar.

@ClintEastwood No. An Eved Kena'ani is obligated in most Mitzvot (but not some) as you noted. They are "half-Jewish" in a sense.
