comment Can you say “Lag Baomer” before counting Sefirah?
@HodofHod I might add the the Shulchan Aruch HaRav (489:7) is mesupak if counting with letters works at all, although my impression is that we (?) generally rule that it does.

@msh210 If you were aware of the issue, have negative kavana! If you were not aware of the issue, see above.

@HodofHod Yes. The 'today is' kula is another issue. Although the more you phrase it like the accepted nussach, the less his last point applies.

comment What do people mean when they say “Kaballah”?
@HodofHod Exactly! One focuses on the active/giving and one on the passive/receiving. It's the old notein/mekabel distinction. (I made a kabbalah reference! Yay!)

comment Why is Lag Baomer celebrated the way it is (or at all)?
@msh210 because...it's not deorayta (or even really derabanan)?

comment Is swimming unclothed ok?
Only Ashkenazios say the bracha in the mikva. Sephardiyot say it in a side room before taking off their last clothing.

Is learning Sefer Yetzira such a proof? Don't lots of kabbalists learn that book? (I really have no idea.)

@Menachem I'm not saying it was wrong to ask! Just that as it's pharsed now there is no good answer, and if you rephrase it to why then it's a dupe of the question I linked to above.

Should I post this ^^ as an answer or should the question just be deleted?
