Yasher Koach to Michael Carasik for his very succinct and enlightening Torah Talk this am. It is the first thing I listen to most mornings and I appreciate it very much.Until I heard today's talk I had never even noticed the difference in the two spellings of Kamocha, and I have been saying those words for close to three quarters of a century.

Yes, I too want to thank you for this explanation. It sent me back to my Sim Shalom siddur where the dash in the first instance is omitted. Any thoughts about this?
