comment Where is “Nachal Mitzrayim”?
@DoubleAA I understand that. My question was: before we took possession of EY, what was the border between Mitzrayim and whichever one of the 7 nations bordered them? Was it Nachal Mitzrayim?

comment Where is “Nachal Mitzrayim”?
@DoubleAA That's a good point, although if we were being given land that was already occupied by other nations maybe a (small) part of Mitzrayim would be given as well. In any event do we know that Mitzrayim's border ended with Nachal Mitzrayim?

comment Laser print Mikraos Gedolos Tanach online?
@NoachmiFrankfurt Thanks for the proper terms. I tried searching for what it's called but couldn't find anything. I called it laser-print because that is how I have heard people refer to that precise type of typesetting.

comment Does learning Torah or doing Mitzvos protect others from enemies?
The question would be: Is it assur/muttar/reshus to put yourself in a place of danger even though you are helping. I don't know why that's such a hard question to comprehend. Putting your feelings aside as to what the yeshiva bochurim should be doing, there's a halachic question to be asked here.

comment Does learning Torah or doing Mitzvos protect others from enemies?
@DoubleAA I agree that everyone must help, and yes I think there is a decision to be made of how many soldiers go in and which ones etc. If the way some people help is by endangering lives I think there should be a discussion... there are halachos that impact these kinds of decisions!

comment Does learning Torah or doing Mitzvos protect others from enemies?
@DoubleAA If one of these sources do demonstrate that learning Torah or doing mitzvos protect others from physical harm and that this works geographically, it would be an interesting question if we should transfer people to an area of active danger and harm. (I.e. that would be an entirely different conversation).
