comment Is wasting seed a sin for a gentile ? Especially if he wants to convert in the future?
@loewian yes judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/9077/… for instance. But either way the op isn't referring to gilui arayot (if that's what you were hinting at). Plus there are multiple ways you could imagine measuring worseness. I fail to see how the ops sin ranks on any of them.

comment Teshuva for wasting seed
To repent for any sin: Have remorse. [Ask forgiveness from those harmed if applicable and make financial restitution to them if applicable.] Confess orally to God. Promise not to do it again. (It's a deceptively simple process.)

"I know that wasting seed is the worst sin in Judaism" Actually, that would seem to be Avoda Zara and/or Murder.

comment Why do we say כן יהי רצון in response to each blessing of Birkat Kohanim?
@DanF Now do you understand why some only respond at the very end? It's not a response to three things bc the chazan isn't blessing you. It's one response to the whole paragraph.

@DanF It is not. The predominant custom in Israel is for the Gabbai to call "Kohanim" and the Chazan to do no introductory stuff.

comment Why isn't the nurturing of musical talent and the writing of poetry in praise of Hashem a formal part of Jewish education?
@IsaacMoses Contemporary Jewish practice is actively working towards having that music. It's a very high priority in fact. I don't know what could be more emphasized than that. That's super high level importance.

@IsaacMoses Contemporary Judaism also has a Biblical Mitzva to have music in the Temple. I don't know what could be more emphasized than that. That's super high level importance.

comment How did the water climb so high?
Yes it is. Q: The stated miracle seems unnecessary. So why state it as such? Answer: [some sort of symbolism].

Note the Chazzan's "Kohanim" piece when there is no duchening is not itself a blessing. It is a prayer that God bless us with the blessings that the Kohanim gave, with an accompanying proof-text describing the alluded to blessings.

@msh210 Further, in some customs the practice is only to respond [whatever it is you respond] once after the final line.

@DanF You haven't expressed that there is differences in custom. It may be worth noting that or at least noting what custom you are working in.
