Question
I drink some of my coffee from my travel mug before I leave my home. Then I continue to drink it in the car. Do I say borei nefashos prior to leaving the house and make a new brocha?

Answer
This issue is a bit of a controversy. According to Rav Moshe Feinstein, ztl, if you intended to take your drink with you or normally do so, no new berachos are required. [ED. Note: As we prepare to launch our new site, BJL will be partnering with the Star-K on Ask the Rabbi and Kashrus Questions. Rabbi Ari Storch is no longer answering these. This question has been answered by a Star-K Rabbi]

Hilchos Rosh HaShana - Kadish

In every Kaddish said from Rosh Hashana through Yom Kippur,  the word ''above'' is repeated,  that is, one should say ''above, above..''  (and not with (the letter) 'vav', as in ''and above'').  Since the Kaddish must contain twenty-eight words,  and during the rest of the year one says, ''He is beyond any blessing'',  now we say ''He is beyond any blessing''.1 (KSA 129:1)
1) We have added the extra word ''le'eilah'' and so we change from ''min kol birchatah'' to ''mi'kol birchatah'' which has the same meaning but is one word less.
