comment What is the longest word in Tanach?
@sabbahillel Thanks. I didn't ask about the shortest because I saw that on this link here: judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/2116/…

comment When was the one time the Jewish people did not fast on Yom Kippur?
@Matt I would have to ask my student. I believe it was for a Yeshiva in Israel.

@DoubleAA You could label it riddle, but I know they don't like riddles here too much. Also it is more of a Trivia question I guess.

revised Does a woman do Tashlumin for an omission in Prayer?
Better...I would prefer not to take a stand on the Rambam issue without doing research into the issue. I am just citing where the position is found without validating or dismissing its authenticity.

@IsaacMoses Good question. He does quote: "כי לא נחש ביעקב ולא קסם בישראל"

comment Palm-reading in Judaism
@IsaacMoses Thanks for the comment. I was struggling with that. It would seem according to the Rambam there are no valid Torah sources that would hold such a thing. So I guess in that sense it is a response to the question "Are there Jewish sources which affirm the validity of the art of palm-reading? If yes..." So technically it is responding to the question asked. The answer according to the Rambam is "NO". Although there are positions that would disagree and say the Rambam is wrong and there are valid Torah positions that hold of Palm Reading. Would that satisfy the posting requirement?

comment Why should God punish the firstborn of another nation that was in Egypt?
Thank you for your thoughtful answer and clear distinction. How would you explain the "justice" of it?

@YeZ Those comments are referring to those that were captives in the prison. Are you suggesting the same answer would apply?

comment Why was it important for the Jews to leave Mitzraim with רכוש גדול?
@user6591 God did not create a random thing that he promised Avraham, just so he could fulfill it. There should be a significance of this command in and of itself. That is why I am asking it from this Parsha.
