comment *Asher Bamayim* (אשר במים) in kashrus halacha
No where in the Parsha that discusses fish does it say the word Dag. > את זה תאכלו מכל אשר במים, כל אשר לו סנפיר וקשקשת במים בימים ובנחלים > אותם תאכלו. וכל אשר אין לו סנפיר וקשקשת בימים ובנחלים מכל שרץ המים > ומכל נפש החיה אשר במים , שקץ הם לכם. ושקץ יהיו לכם, מבשרם לא תאכלו ואת > נבלתם תשקצו. כל אשר אין לו סנפיר וקשקשת במים, שקץ הוא לכם This would seem to indicate that any water living creature requires fins and scales to be Kosher, and that would be the case even if it is not a fish.

comment Just how overpriced was Efron's burial cave anyway?
@user6591: Har Hazeisim was not always that expensive. It only got expensive when it filled up.

@user6591: The correct way to compare in my opinion is to compare to prices in those days.

comment Why is the wording “הערים האל” used? (Deut 4:42)
כל-התועבות האל Vayikra 18:27 Being that there are other instances where this word is used - Why should הֶעָרִים הָאֵל be האלה?

comment Was Zerach really the first born?
Your question is confusing. The Torah clearly says a few verses later that Peretz was born first. This Pasuk is only saying that the midwife was trying to identify who came out first, and placed a string on the hand of Zerach who was later born second.

This does not answer whether an individual may return either by walking and breaking Techum Shabbos or driving.

I sent an e-mail to Yeshayahu Leibowitz asking him for the source. I will post his answer when I receive it.
