comment Is there a shatnez concern with cheap unlabeled thread in sewing kits?
@msh210: The bigger problem is linen thread for wool clothing. Wool clothing is way more popular than linen. If one has a linen suit, yes there would be a concern, however in real life that is quite unusual.

The Sefer is not online to my knowledge. However you can google the Hebrew words and see it quoted.

comment Doesn't Yaakov have רוח הקודש
הכוונה ליעקב שלא הוליך אותה למערה כדי שלא יקבור שם שתי אחיות, כי יבוש מאבותיו. ולאה היא הנשאת לו ראשונה בהיתר, ורחל באהבתו אותה בנדר אשר נדר לה לקחתה. (פרק מ"ח, פסוק ז'). לפי דברי הרמב"ן, קבורתה של רחל בדרך לא הייתה במקרה, בגלל מותה בדרך: רחל לא נקברה במערת המכפלה מפני שיעקב הרגיש שאין זה ראוי שהוא ייקבר עם שתי אחיות ששתיהן נשותיו , ורחל נפטרה בכניסה לארץ מפני שבארץ לא ראוי להיות נשוי לשתי אחיות. דווקא רחל היא זו שמתה ולא לאה, כיוון שלאה היא אשתו הראשונה ולכן הנישואין איתה יותר ראויים, ואילו בנישואין עם רחל יש פגם בארץ ישראל. etzion.vbm-torah.org

Regarding point 2 & 3 - some Rabbis will require Giyur Lchumra, which means conversion is required, however the person will remain a Mamzer. I am talking where it can be clearly established whether the boy is Jewish or not.
