The mishna brura gives a general guideline of how ones attire should be when davening 90:1 Specifically that one should see themselves standing in front of a king and with awe and dress accordingly. These days, due to the pandemic, it is perfectly normal to visit the president of the U.S. or the prime minister of Israel with a mask and probably it is ...

Aruch HaShulchan Orach Chaim 233:7 writes that ideally, one ought to pray mincha between mincha ketana (9:30) and plag hamincha (10:45). This is based on Rambam Hilchot Tefilla 3:4. Aruch HaShulchan understands that practically the tamid was always offered before plag hamincha, because they needed time for the ketoret, nesachim etc. afterwards. However, bedi'...

The Talmud in Berachot 30b explains why we do not repeat Shemoneh Esrei on Rosh Chodesh evening: אמר רב ענן אמר רב טעה ולא הזכיר של ר"ח ערבית אין מחזירין אותו לפי שאין בית דין מקדשין את החדש אלא ביום אמר אמימר מסתברא מילתא דרב בחדש מלא אבל בחדש חסר מחזירין אותו א"ל רב אשי לאמימר מכדי רב טעמא קאמר מה לי חסר ומה לי מלא אלא לא שנא R. 'Anan said in ...

The bracha that starts יוצר אור ובורא חושך doesn't end with עושה שלום ובורא את הכל. It ends with ברוך אתה ה' יוצר המאורות, probably a few pages later in your siddur. It's the first of the "Birchot Shema".

While this text is usually read as talking about how to approach prayer, it seems to answer your question as well. Gemara in Berakhot 31a says: תָּנוּ רַבָּנַן: אֵין עוֹמְדִין לְהִתְפַּלֵּל לֹא מִתּוֹךְ עַצְבוּת, וְלֹא מִתּוֹךְ עַצְלוּת, וְלֹא מִתּוֹךְ שְׂחוֹק, וְלֹא מִתּוֹךְ שִׂיחָה, וְלֹא מִתּוֹךְ קַלּוּת רֹאשׁ, וְלֹא מִתּוֹךְ דְּבָרִים בְּטֵלִים,...

For Mincha The Sheilot utshuvot haRadvaz (Rav David Ben Zimra Rav in Egypt 16th century) 1,676 says that ideally Mincha should be done after Mincha Ketana (2.5 Halachik hours before night time when dividing daylight into 12 hours) when possible because that was the time of the Korban Tamid. Ideally, only if one is certain he won't miss the time for Davening ...

I think you may have a mistaken assumption. It seems like you are assuming that Karaites have an entirely different tradition than we do. But the reality is that Karaites broke off from Rabbinic Judaism. Karaites are not the direct descendants of the Sadduccees (anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong), but are a group of Rabbinic-ish Jews who felt "...

As much as I wish we could have tosefes Rosh Chodesh, Rav Doniel Schreiber writes quotes the Magen Avraham (OC 419:1) saying that there is no such thing. He continues by quoting the Mishnas Ya'avetz (OC 12) explaining that the reason we can say Ya'aleh Veyavo during an earlier Ma'ariv is because the tefillah relates to the next day and is enough to justify ...

I don't have a definitive source for my answer, but I believe it is correct. The passage to which you refer from the siddur is actually a direct quote from the gemara. So your question is really on the gemara- why did the gemara choose to use that language intead of writing it more simply? I believe the answer is based on the whole context. The gemara is ...

In answer to your 2nd question, the following is taken from the Weekly Parsha titled "From the Orchards of Jerusalem" by Daneal Weiner: When would have been the most appropriate time for Moshe to pray for entrance to Erets Yisrael? That would have been the last Rosh Hashanah (R"H) he experienced. Moshe knows that B"Y is going in to E'Y ...
