    I would say we were given both the Oxford Comma and two spaces after a period at Mt. Sinai but Torah has neither vowels nor punctuation.

    I once attended a synagogue that had a bronze dedication plaque in the social hall. The plaque contained an erroneous apostrophe. Truly a typo for the ages!:)

    I had to un-learn the two spaces thing. I seem to recall that it's an APA style thing. I wonder if the Oxford Comma is, too?

    Yes to Oxford comma. Meh to two spaces after a full stop, no strong feeling there. But it's interesting that APA is advising against hyphenating prefixes, as I've found myself hyphenating fewer and fewer of them in the last few years.
