comment How did someone know which portion of 'manna' was his?
@MonicaCellio here's the soncino translation: "Unto the righteous it fell in front of their homes; the average folk went out and gathered, whereas the wicked ones had to go about to gather it" seems like the proximity of the manna was according to level of righteousness not according to got first grabs.

so why didn't it write "the early birds found it at the door of their houses"? why righteous/wicked?

comment Does the existence of punishment remove the possibility of free will?
@YEZ i'm not ignoring your example. I'm saying there would be very few wicked people if the punishment for evil deeds was administered immediately in a miraculous way. of course there would be a few nutcases that would commit suicide but that would be the exception not the mainstream.

@YEZ a normal sane person does not have free will to jump off a roof. necessity compels him not to do it.

@YEZ i disagree. you also have free will whether to jump off a roof but you realize the immediate danger so its not really free will.

comment Should someone who isn't 100% certain of God's existence be considered a kofer?
Marpe Lenefesh commentary on ch.10 of Shaar Yichud: "As we find recorded in books, that most of the early philosophers became insane. And we see even in our generation - those groups which go after their opinions and investigations, either they became crazy or they go out to evil ways..." - not clear from here if actual apikores, but if you rely only on your intellect alone you will likely go off and become a full fledged bonafide apikores.

maybe the rosh yeshiva was just telling people to be content with simple faith and not to think too much due to this: judaism.stackexchange.com/a/5463/1857

comment source for obligation to recite the shema
@TamirEvan in the sefer mitzvos of the chafetz chaim he writesas the source of the shema "vedibarta bam...bshachbecha uvkumecha". so he is learning the mitzva of shema is derived from the whole verse

comment How many approaches to Torah are there?
yes, it's all very similar system. all ligned up. the roots of the souls correspond to the interpretations of the torah. just like the 613 human limbs/gidim correspond to the 613 mitzvot.
