comment Returning from hospital on Shabbos if it is beyond the Techum
@Shokhet: Please read the answers in the question I linked. Rabbi Moshe Feinstein allowed Hatzala members to drive by themselves to return. I do not know if he allowed a private individual to return. Others held only through a non Jew. I do not know that the Halacha is that an individual may drive back himself. Would appreciate a source for such a contention.

@Shokhet: Driving does not have to be done by the person returning. Perhaps a non Jew is driving the person home?

comment What was the main job duty of Sar Hatabahim?
The word in Lashon Kodesh for cooking is בישול. Modern day Hebrew has many examples of words that are not correct based on Lashon Kodesh.

comment Listening to a woman giving shiur
@DannySchoemann: I imagine this ruling is regarding a non family member, for a public Shiur. However I only know what it says as I did not ask the question personally, so anything beyond my answer would be conjecture.

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.

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
