Welcome to the Judaism community on Codidact!

Will you help us build our community of learners? Drop into our study hall, ask questions, help others with answers to their questions, share a d'var torah if you're so inclined, invite your friends, and join us in building this community together. Not an ask-the-rabbi service, just people at all levels learning together.

Search

Advanced Search Options

To further refine your search, you can use additional qualifiers such as score:>0.5. For example, the search score:>=0.5 created:<1y grammar would return only posts mentioning "grammar" that have a score >= 0.5 and were created less than a year ago.

Further help with searching is available in the help center.

Quick hints: tag:tagname, user:xxx, "exact phrase", post_type:xxx, created:<N{d,w,mo,y}, score:>=0.5

This is a test to see if the Sefaria linking works. @ArtOfCode says just make things that look like references. So I suppose Genesis 1:1 should give me the first Pasuk of the Torah. Let's see...

Q&A Is there any davening unique to being said when alone?

The only thing that comes to mind is in K'riat Sh'ma - if an individual is praying alone, they add the three words "ק-ל מלך נאמן" beforehand. The reasoning for this is that when praying with a miny...
