comment V'Lo Neivosh in Nusach Ashkenaz
Hi Ezra. Where have you heard of this prayer before? Why would you think it is(n't) in Nusach Ashkenaz? Do you know/suspect approximately where in Nusach Ashkenaz it might be found? Please edit to clarify.

comment Source text behind Rabbinic view on Dinah, Simeon, and Shaul noted in Jewish Encyclopedia
An easy to navigate version of Genesis Rabbah is provided by Sefaria. See a relevant citation here sefaria.org/Bereishit_Rabbah.80.4 An English version is apparently here archive.org/details/RabbaGenesis but I haven't looked at it at all.

comment Source text behind Rabbinic view on Dinah, Simeon, and Shaul noted in Jewish Encyclopedia
I think that one source (at least) has a typo: that should be "B. B. 15b"

+1 This question is clear, precise, well motivated, and shows research effort. Well done.

comment Attending a Super Bowl party where alcohol and Kosher food is provided
I have not met him, but I'm sure his food is very Kosher. That's not really the point, though.

You fail to mention that the "Dog House" in Teaneck is under supervision from Monsey because the local rabbinate deemed it too inappropriate for supervision. Makes me wonder how else you've skewed the data.

comment If G-d does not lack anything what is meant when it says that he desires prayers of the righteous?
so what does it mean that God desires the prayers of the righteous?

comment Drinking coffee using non-kosher utensils
@Loewian There's still almost certainly Linat Layla. And I don't know about your claim anyway. This sounds like the kinda place where there are lots of mugs and people just take one. There could totally be a surplus.

comment Drinking coffee using non-kosher utensils
In the end though it's a chashash derabanan bc the cup is probably eino ben yomo. Plus glazed coffee mugs may have a din of glass (non-absorbent).

comment Is the book of Enoch part of judaism?
@user6591 He may or may not be correct that it shouldn't be studied, but he can't prove that from it's exclusion from Tanakh. So his argument is invalid, even if all the premises and conclusions are correct.

comment What is mekoriism?
@far22 This is all you know? You don't remember where you first heard it, what the context was, who it was from? This is a really bizarre and unlikely set of facts to make up the entirety of your knowledge on the subject.

@danny you can't just change what people said. that's lying

comment Why Pesucha between Lo Sisa and Zachor Es HaShabbos?
I don't have one (though it's perfectly plausible, and the split into 10 Parshiyot is undeniable), but the fact that the Bavli (from the place of origin of the Taam Elyon) uses those examples shouldn't preclude the existance of variant Midrashim of the same type. Just like how the Bavli says that the Samekh in the Luchot floated miraculously, but the Yerushalmi has a variant that says it was the Ayin (because in Ketav Ivri the Ayin looks like a circle). In other words, don't be wedded to the Bavli's example when approaching the Midrash.

comment brushing sheitals on shabbos
Why might you think this is a problem? Any hair pulled out by brushing is certainly Mekalkel, using a brush to pull it out is seemingly a Shinui, and pulling it out is definitely unintentional, which should be enough to permit it, even if you argue it's a Pesik Reishei (which is not obvious).

comment Is it permitted for a couple to have relations during the daytime?
The Talmud (Niddah 17a as understood by Rashi) praises people who, due to being tired at night and not enjoying the experience, have relations during the day time.
