The Minimum number to start Chazarat HaSh”atz
Shalom to the Rav: We have a Shacharit Minyan in our Bet Haknesset early in the morning. The minyan is very small, sometimes eleven men sometimes twelve. Most of the men attending must run off to work, however there are some people who come who pray Shemoneh Esrei much more slowly, and it takes a longtime to finish Shemoneh Esrei. Many members have to run out and become impatient waiting it creates a lot of tension. Are we allowed to start Chazarat HaShatz with less than ten men who finished and if so, what is the minimum?
Yoeli Klein - Levakesh Rachamim
The original song was composed by Shlomo Carlebach with the moving words from a prayer recited on the High Holidays
I have a question that has been bothering me for some time. Much of the study of Judaism, such as the Talmud is filled with debates. Even in Jewish law there is debates, such as between the Rambam and his colleagues, or the Beit Yosef and Rav Isserlis. But from what I have learned that all makes sense, because there can be truths on different spiritual levels and the origin of the sages souls also matters. But what I really do not understand is how there can be two practical truths, as in, how do Sefardim and Ashkenazim hold differently in actual practice, or how is there different versions of prayer books, I don't mean a minor custom or stringency, rather mean real big differences? Did God want different laws for different Jews, not better or worse, just different?? Where do we see that this was Gods intention? How do we know this is what god wanted, and not some technicality? I understand it is all divine providence, but is there a source for this idea? Can you find these ideas in the Torah? To summarize, how does it make sense that there can be 2 Jews, practicing Judaism, 2 different ways, if we have one god and one Torah?
