Not just in the Mikdash, but any established (!) Beit Din.

@mevaqesh Consider editing your post to clarify that?

Probably you should find a different Shul with people your age

I'm just saying I dont know where your claim that there is no issue of musical instruments comes from

Your observation of what? It seems to be against normative Halacha.

"It isn't even rabinically forbidden like musical instruments because it can't be fixed." Does the Gemara say this?

Whose translation from the Arabic is that?

comment Why can't we distribute mitzvah obligations around the community?
Sure it is. By having a defined make up date you get a crowd.

They don't complain that they're going to miss bringing the Pesach offering. They complain that their going to miss out on bringing it with everyone. Sounds like they want to be part of the communal thing (למה נגרע לבלתי הקריב...בתוך בני ישראל). I wouldn't say it's so clear there is an individual obligation at play here.

comment Is learning the Tanya dangerous?
Your having learned it is a good source. Its age, though, is irrelevant, as texts which inspire movements by definition predate them.

comment What should one do with Shemittah produce?
@CashCow I don't think that's true... By "Rabbinate" you mean Israel City-Rabbinates?

comment Did the Ramban say that mitzvos d'Rabbanan are only obligatory in the Land of Israel?
I don't think he ever said that...

comment Are there any halachic issues with apologizing to a past shidduch before rosh hashanah?
This is definitely NOT "unnecessarily". This seems about as necessary as you can get.

@msh210 and why only the Zavah herself counts her clean days, I suppose.

Note FWIW the Rambam didn't compose the Ani Maamin formulation.

comment Siddur with metegs? (and preferably markings for dagesh chazak, kamatz katan, shva na, chirik gadol)
@barlop The rule of BGDKPT says that a tav gets a dagesh kal only after a quiescent shva. As for why there can't be a dagesh chazak after a vocal shva, that would mean there's be a syllable opened by a shva and closed by a pseudo-shva (the beginning of the gemination) but without anything in between, and every syllable needs a main sound.

@barlop If that shva (in שכינתיה) was vocal than the tav after would be rafeh. Aramaic is just different sometimes.
