The answer is there are few if any Biblical references. The afterlife is more emphasized in the oral tradition than in the actual Bible. Which is why you had the sadduccees (the priestly Jews who only believed in the first five books of the Bible with no oral tradition) who did not believe in an afterlife at all. To this day there are still many Jews who are ...
Deut. 7:11 states: "You shall observe the commandment, and the decrees, and the ordinances, that I command you, today, to perform them." The Torah writes about Earthly rewards, and not a lot about the world to come (afterlife) or the resurrection (see further in Deut. Ch.7:12-etc.) One reason for this is the word "today" in Deut.7:11. The Torah is meant ...
Yes, at least for some non-Lubavitch, non-Breslov people. The proof is from the myriad great Torah scholars who cannot reasonably be described as Lubavitch or Breslov but who quote their books. As just one example, Mishna B'rura extensively cites the Shulchan Aruch of the first Lubavitcher rebbe.
Some passages that are understood by some to refer to personal resurrection include: Isaiah 26:19: Oh, let Your dead revive! Let corpses arise! Awake and shout for joy, You who dwell in the dust!— For Your dew is like the dew on fresh growth; You make the land of the shades come to life. Job 19:25-27: But I know that my Vindicator ...
I believe this is a work by Rabbi Binyamin Kazis on the Semag available here (note: the print is from the 18th century). The page in question on lavin 258 can be viewed here. The beginning of it is the following:
Proper respect for Jewish Holy books, as documented in Jewish Law: Holy Books are always placed right side up; not upside down. They need to be turned right-side up, if found otherwise. Holy Books are not to be placed - when open - on their print.(A popular way to keep the place when the book is open.) One does not place Holy Books inside other books as a ...
Leviticus is available on hebrewbooks.org. (The listed date there, שנה/1595, is a mistake.)
ArtScroll has a book titled "The Fifth Commandment" that sounds like it might be what you're looking for. http://www.artscroll.com/Books/9781578191918.html
See here for a discussion in the talmud where hints to resurrection of the dead are found in the Torah. http://www.come-and-hear.com/sanhedrin/sanhedrin_90.html#PARTb The mishna on the folio beforehand stated that a belief in the resurrection is not enough, one must believe it is 'from the Torah'. Rashi seems to take this statement very literally. Rambam ...
There are a number of different circumstances that would occur that would allow someone to use a sefer in shul without explicitly asking permission. The question however, seems to imply that someone has taken the sefer from the shul without first asking permission. Thus, using a sefer (that belongs to someone) in the shul is different than taking a sefer ...
