In honor of the Mishnah in Pirkei Avos perek Bais - Lo Habyshan Lomed I’d like to start this thread so that people can ask practical questions that they’ve been to embarrassed to ask .
I’ll start- can someone give me the proper procedures of steps to begin and end shmoneh esreh?

The beauty of imamother - that we can ask questions we'd be embarrassed of irl (even if they're not embarrassing!)
I'm the op of this: https://www.imamother.com/foru.....68669
So I get it!

About shemoneh esrei - When taking steps backwards, begin with your left foot. When taking steps forward, begin with your right. I was taught that the three steps are as follows - First step halfway back, second step a full step back, then third step brings your foot together with the other foot. And the same way when taking steps forward.
Hope that was clear!

Thank you. I never knew about the half steps and always had to do a little shuffle after three steps so my feet would end up straight next to each other.

What’s the correct order for cutting nails? For Those that hold that there is an order obviously Smile
I know it’s cutting every second one and then going back and doing the rest but from where do you start on each hand?

Also, what do you do with the match after lighting shabbos candles? Can you blow it out or what?

I’m chabad bt for reference..

L4, L2, L5, L3, L1. R2, R4, R1, R3, R5

Nails I believe are 1, 3, 5, 2, 4- you’re not supposed to cut nails in consecutive order, if you hold by that.

I have a tea light holder that I put my matches into to burn out.

My mother actually just told me that you’re not supposed to take from an already lit candle to light another candle, even if a Bracha hasn’t been made yet. I thought it was only after the Bracha is made, but she said you should strike a new match if you didn’t finish lighting all your candles.

I thought you’re not supposed to do both hands the same day?

Right hand first- ב-ד-א-ג-ה (pointer, ring, thumb, middle, pinky)
Left hand ד-ב-ה-ג-א

About the match- there are diff. shitos. Some hold you cant put it out because you're mekabel shabbos as soon as finished lighting. Others hold you can bec. only mekabel once you make bracha.

I believe you're confusing that; both hands are fine. We don't do hands and feet same day.

This thread is exactly what I intended it to be !
If you were taught anything different , please share and tell us your nusach- maybe different ones have variations and others of the same can clarify.

Your thread was my inspiration - especially after I taught my class Pirkei Avos . I thought this is a great week to ask ! Thanks so much !
