comment Is there a mitzva to make known the truth of Judaism to non-Jews
@TamirEvan not as far as i know. maybe because not a binding halacha. more like mida chasidus for special individuals like avraham who he brought as an example

comment What is the logical explanation for קם ליה בדרבה מיניה?
maybe it's from love your neighbor. just like we find in death penalties that we look for least painful forms. ie have pity on the poor guy. the law is for us not him.

comment What's the Jewish equivalent of “crossing your fingers”?
@msh210 we pray to remind ourselves that the results are in God's hands. ex. Asa who trusted in the doctors but did not pray was punished for this.

"Rav Aharon Lichtenstein a'h playing basketball with great zest and joy" - no proof from there. probably he was trying to connect with his students like a father playing blocks with his kids
