Establishing practices as authoritative, by whom, and how? For example: Grafting palm trees on Erev Pesach. Bundling Shema. Trimming hekdesh. Setting aside peah for fields of vegetables. Also: 6 things that Hezkiyahu did, including his famous water tunnel. Plus: A focus on the “bundling of Shema,” the famous story on the placement of “Baruch Shem kavod malchuto le-olam va-ed,” and whether it should be said out loud or under one’s breath. Plus, more on peah, beyond the usual field.
