Oz vehadar makes no-frills 5 and 6 volume sets. My 5 volume set is about 8 inches tall, and each volume is about 2 inches wide. There are a number of places to get them in the US.

Shadal has two commentaries on Torah: a shorter one called Mishtadel a longer one, with two printings. One of these printings is a censored text, which leaves out e.g. some of Shadal's citations of gentile scholars. This one is available online in plain text.

I quite like the gemara shiurim at Rav Nissan Kaplan's Daf Yomi Review. Many of them also include mar'ei mekomos as a .gif file - such as these ones, from the first and fourth perakim of Gittin. I would consider them to be reasonably high level (for me, certainly) - at least insofar as they look be'iyyun at a variety of different Rishonim.

There are probably thousands of shiurim on Gemara, as many 'maggidei shiur' will upload their lectures on the internet. There are two general ways to find them: by looking for a particular yeshiva or teacher, such as the audio library of Yeshivas Ohr Reuvain, Rav Yitzchok Lichtenstein (both of those are rabbis in Monsey) or Yeshiva Toras Moshe, for ...

One good website: http://shidduchim101.com/writing-shidduch-resumes/ Writing a resume is not a perfect science; you can modify it to fit your personality, background, and hashkafic approach. In general, if you want to put something on the resume, you may; if you don't want to, you don't need to. It may be very helpful to get a hold of several resumes from ...

Full research on the book ...

(I'm french) the siddur used by west european ashkenazi communities here in France is called Sha'arei Tefila. It is similar to the Rodelheim one with french annotations and few asaltian customs. It has been made by an alsatian rav called Rav Yoseph Bloch in 1924 and is still in use and regularly republished (last by Biblieurope ed. in 2013). The other french ...

The best Nusach Asheknaz siddur is AndDaven https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.saraandshmuel.anddaaven&hl=en Tfilon (mentioned above) is not proper Nusach Ashkenaz. For example Psukei D'Zimra has some definite Nusach Sefarad text. For example Yishtabach is not Nusash Ashkenaz.
