comment Is it necessary to wear kippa to bed or when not moving?
@SethJ I am not sure what you mean. SA says one may not walk four amos with uncovered hair and MB adds from Shaloh that even sleeping with a head covering is Midas Chassidus.

comment Explanation of Avos 2:6?
@vram Everything came from the linked book Vedibarta Bam besides for the source of the Arizal. (I believe that this idea also comes from the Rambam's son but I would have to find the source for that.)

comment The “Miracle” of Hagar's giving birth
@CharlesKoppelman The Ramban says "כל ימי היות בהם הליחה" which I am translating loosely as remaining fertile. The point being that their fertility could naturally continue past age one hundred which is certainly not the case nowadays.

comment Who was R' Avin Nagara
I could not find anything else about him (besides for the Seder Hadoros that @ba linked to), but some seforim include him among Amoraim who had professions so I guess they understand he was also a Rabbi.

comment Who was R' Avin Nagara
Rashi there seems to say that he was actually a carpenter (I don't believe Rashi would just be explaining the meaning of his surname).

comment Why does Rashi say that a hey at the end = a lamed at the beginning so many times?
@DoubleAA I don't think that that would be a good source for the OP as this answer is not consistent with the Lubavitcher Rebbe's approach to Rashi; he learns (as explained in Klallei Rashi Chapter 7) that Rashi assumes the learner is studying in order. Regarding the end of that Rashi about agada, see Alex's comment here.

comment Why does Rashi say that a hey at the end = a lamed at the beginning so many times?
@DoubleAA The sefer כללי רש"י details the Lubavitcher Rebbe's approach to learning Rashi. In Chapter 3 he explains the idea that Rashi is geared to the level of a "ben chomesh l'mikra"; since the Torah is written in a style that is understood to a five year old, and Rashi's objective is explain the simple meaning of the Torah (see Rashi Breishis 3:8 for example), it follows his commentary is written for someone on such a level.

@DoubleAA I guess from Pirkey Avos "Ben Chamesh Lamikra"

@Ariel Though the Lubavitcher Rebbe also says that Rashi assumes the student to be learning Chumash in order
