comment How do you understand the Rambam on Free choice in Teshuvah 5:5?
...the person would choose. I know you are trying to side step it by removing time, but the way you are describing it is in a way the describes God's knowledge as lacking.

comment How do you understand the Rambam on Free choice in Teshuvah 5:5?
I am trying to grasp your explanation. However, what I keep getting caught up on by your explanation is that you seem to be describing the way God knows the "results". The Rambam clearly states we do not know how God knows these results "כיון שכן הוא אין בנו כח לידע היאך ידע הקב"ה כל הברואים והמעשים " Furthermore, I am a bit unclear on another point. The way you describe it is that God knows all the anticipated possibilities. So when the actual choice is made it merely so to speak "confirms" one of the routes possible. However, this suggests God did not know the particular outcome...

comment What is the reason for שנים מקרא ואחד תרגום?
Thank you for providing these sources. Did you come across anyone that explains what the perfection is in this Mitzvah that merits the long life? Why more so than any learning Torah? Why this formula of twice mikreh and then once Tirgum?

How about אינו יהודי? or Aeino Yehudi? or perhaps a Bnei Noach, if appropriate?

comment Is it Gezel Sheinah for a teacher to wake up a student in class?
hmmm..could be. Thanks I will take a look at that. That Mishnah would seem to prove the point as well. If you could burn their clothes, I would assume you can wake up a student.
