A post for Erev Shabbos

For those who have always wondered about the Zoharic passage Kegavnah before Borchu on Shabbos evening, check out the link above.

For those interested in the continuity between East-European and North American traditions, read the link above.

For those who have wanted an answer about something for a long time, the link above has someone in the same boat.

This reminds me of the Rabanan Kaddish problem.
"mezona, revicha, upurkana min kadam d'avuhon" It means that food, profit and salvation come from before our Father.

Many sidurim are printed with U'purkana on a new line so reciters pause there, changing he meaning slightly.
"food, profit; And separate us from before our Father".

I just checked your blog for the first time, and was flattered to see that the very top post on it was an advertisement for a post of mine.

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
