Why do we have a tag and a tag? Is there a difference?


Personally, I've tagged things if they were about hagbaha (raising the scroll before or after the reading), removing the scroll from its cabinet, mi sheberach prayers said around the time of the reading, or the like, and if they were about the reading or the blessings said for the reading. That seems to be their use by others also. Perhaps the split is a good one, but the tags need better wikis?

  • That's how I think of those tags as well. The two have a large area of overlap (the actual reading in the synagogue), but each has its own other areas (hagbaha, etc. for the former; practicing reading, etc. for the latter)

    I added to the tag wikis. They could probably use more attention. Dec 15 '11 at 1:43
  • @MonicaCellio, nicely done; thanks.
