comment Is a Jew allowed to be knighted? Problem with kneeling?
Was there ever an issue of bowing before a monarc? (not one claiming to be g-d). I would think not, because of the bracha one makes when seeing a king.

comment Do any Jewish sources mention Satan talking to a Jew?
@Victor One of the fundamental differences between Judaism and Christianity is in Judaism "Satan" exists to temp. But he did not rebel against g-d. He exist because without bad (evil) there is no free will. (This is just something to keep in mind when asking about "Satan")

@MonikaMichael You're missing all those things that the priests have to give up in order to receive that privilege of working in the temple. Is to say that different people have different jobs discrimination?

comment What is the origin of BS“D / B”H?
Do you know of any origin or is it just a custom. (I learned to do this when I learned to write and I knew this reasoning already)

comment Why did the 40th-year Jews think they'd erred about Av? Sanhedrin had declared it
and there was a whole other celebration on the 15 of Av (see the last mishna in Ta'anis) emishnah.com/moed2/Ta'anit/4.pdf or was this because of what happened to the hidden in the midbar?

Didn't the whole story take place before the Sanhedrin was established?

This is illustrated by our view of hell. That it is not a punishment but a means of cleansing the soul.

comment I heard not to say “Good Shabbos” after mincha. Is it true, and what defines mincha?
I was told that it was because of the status of Bein Hashemashos, since we are not sure whether it is Shabbos or not we wish people ah gutten.

comment Did people ever place actual physical stumbling blocks before the blind?
I would say that although it is primarily there to warn us about acting dishonestly. It can also be taken literally. Just like a Ben soreh U'Moreh which is a case that is nearly impossible yet teaches us about a lot of other cases.
