Early Shabbath

In our building there is (or there has been since around Rosh HaShannah) a nightly Minyan for Ma'ariv, as well as a weekly Friday night Minyan. Since the start of daylight savings time, however, it has grown increasingly difficult to keep up the nightly Minyan, and the Friday night Minyan has been going through tremendous debate over whether to hold it early or late, the early time generally being quite a bit after Plag (this week it would be 12 minutes after, if it happens at all). For that reason, I decided to look up the rules to bring in Shabbath early by doing a Google search for "Plag Mincha" (I know I broke my own rule regarding transliterating Hebrew, but it's the way everyone else typically spells the word).

I found this article, which I hope will be useful to others reading my blog:

Have a Shabbath Shalom.

you actually broke your own rule back on your pesach post, when you wrote "Heder Ochel."

to be honset, i find your departure from standard transliteration techniques ('ch' for chet, and the hell with it!) pretentious and distracting.

I just wanted to note that "Ochel" is spelled with a Chaf, not a Het.

so, H is only for hets? and a chaf can be written with a 'ch?' is this official ben-yehuda transliteration? i notice that you, like him, also do the q-for-quf substitution. i went throuhg your other posts, and it seems you have been consistent. for now. but i'll be watching you... ready to pounce...
