comment Does Judaism require burial of the dead?
I didn't downvote, but two reasons why this answer is not useful are because it basically consists of just a link (1) to an article in a language that many or most of our users are not fluent in (2). Please consider excerpting and translating the relevant parts here.

@ShmuelBrin Again, why would he need to? What would the goal be?

@Shmuel Then why would you need to argue with them? In other words, what are you hoping to accomplish that the gadol's passing prevents?

@Yehoshua "then they are not a gadol" I think most would argue that Shammai was a gadol, despite being the quintessential person without "the patience of Hillel."

comment Does apocalyptic Judaism still exist?
So, did these "apocalyptic Jews" have any writings? Any famous rabbis? I've just never heard of such a thing, especially the idea that "G-d has abandoned the world" (Ezekiel 9:9) to the forces of evil, which is just about as antithetical a belief to Judaism as they come.

comment How did the Ashkenazi Yom Tov “prayer mode” become so popular?
1) I don't know about other communities, but I've always heard the tunes referred to as "nusach" which isn't really helpful here since it's easily confused. 2) I've wondered about the "amein problem" myself before, and I think it'd be great as its own question (if it doesn't already exist.)
