I have my own Noahide Rabbi,
but unfortunately he doesn't like questions. So I want to use this site for my spiritual growth. But I also don't want to vex away Rabbis. So, I want to know how often I can write questions? Is it OK once for a month?
I heard some Reform rabbis say that Monotheism is the religious renovation of Ancient Jews. According to them, Abraham renovated ancient polytheistic religion to Monotheism. Monotheism is an invention of Jews, not the revealation of HaShem. Is it true? If Monotheism is merely a good idea of Abraham, there is no reason to believe in One God.
On Weekday Morning service, Az Yashir is followed by Yishtabach.
On Shabbat and Festival Morning service, Az Yashir is followed by Nishmat and eventually Yishtabach.
Then the following prayers are recited on Shabbat and Festivals:
HaEil B'Ta'AtzUMot (only on Festivals)
Yishtabach, which is the concluding prayer of Pseukei D'Zimra.
1. Where does Nishmat prayer end?
2. Why are the first words of each paragraph said aloud and emphasized (meaning the words listed above)?
Jews have been suffered horribly throughout ages. I firmly believe that HaShem has given suffering to Jews, exactly because Jews are chosen. HaShem gives suffering and chastisement to His beloved. My question is, why does HaShem give suffering and chastisement to His beloved, instead of giving candy corn?
