Topic Wiki

If your video is not embedding, see if your link starts with "https" - if it does, change it to "http" and it will work.

If a video isn't embedded you should assume it may be inappropriate for some people.

How do I embed a Youtube video?
Click the "youtube" button on the second row on the furthermost left side.
You will now have the words: [youtube][/youtube] in your editor.
Now, copy and paste the youtube video id (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0&x=y) in between the middle brackets in order for it to look like this:
    [youtube]oHg5SJYRHA0[/youtube]
and leave out this part of the link: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v="

Or you can paste the you tube link, highlight it, and then click on the "YouTube" button. this will encase the link in the youtube tags,
Now just click "post" and you're done!



How can I search if a video has been posted here before?
This is not foolproof, but it's a good start.
Search for the youtube ID (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0)

It’s not a machzor vitri; it’s a sefer called ספר הקושיות which is a manuscript of completely unknown authorship that was just published in the last few years, dated from the time of the rishonim solely by its content. As the saying goes, the guy who shared a driveway with the Ramban wasn’t a “rishon” so the manuscript is obviously of dubious reliability. Then there is the Eretz Tzvi who posits that the old siddurim actually had “או״ח” which stood for אופנים וחיות, later erroneously assumed to be אדיר וחזק. There are several early sources (I think סידור רס״ג among others) that don’t support these ideas, hence the more likely explanation, that it simply fits better for the chazzanus, despite butchering the meaning.
Interesting to note though that the minhag of shared driveways goes back to the rishonim.
If you don't care why would you comment?

One of the driveway owners wasn’t a Rishon :)

And if that doesn't get prompt resolution it continues with אדיר וחזק.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I heard from r' Yankel Weingarten the one who gave out the sidur/machzur/tehilim/slichos "hameforesh" that he thinks that's a mistake written by "א בחור א זעצער" that thought that או"ח means אדיר וחזק (he claims that it actually is א "בוכער" א זעצער)
I heard from Bobover Rov Shlit"a about 2 כתות מלאכים אדיר וחזק  to explain this. He also mentioned that he showed it to his father ztzl who agreed.
it's definitely a legit מקור

Fascinating interview in English on Israeli TV



The elephant in the room IME is Palestinian education, which rejects the right of Jews to have any state from sea to sea vs. Israeli education which, for the vast majority of Israeli Jews either acknowledges the right of Palestinians to have some sort of state, or ignores the subject altogether.
