I have personally heard Rav Osher Arieli and his son recited Mizmor L'Soda with a special tune. I never heard anyone else do it.

comment Is it possible to get a copy of the Dead Sea Scrolls texts?
I think he was asking for the TEXTS of the DSS, not pictures of the scrolls. As far as I know, there is no place online that lets you read those texts for free...

comment What is the source of my father's Hebrew name? It is כלאוונא
How do you pronounce that name? Shouldn't you give the GET to your wife, not you getting a GET from her?

comment How did Pharaoh know that Sarai was Avram's wife?
See Bereishis Zuta which seems to imply that Og worked for Paroah at the time and told him of Sarah's identity.

comment Source for Africans being Caananites?
Afriki in Chazal usually refers to Phrygia, not to Africa. Also, see Radak (to Obadiah 1:20) who writes that some Canaanites fled to Germany ("Almenia") and Yossipon (ch. 1) who writes that some Canaanites fled to Eastern Europe and they are known as slavs (related to the word "slaves").
