comment Why does Jewish law and tradition specify times for saying Shema?
@DoubleAA Indeed Hakham 'Ovadiah Yosef A"H mentions the same: that, per Maran HaRav Yosef Qaro, the time limit on saying Qeri'at Shema' Shel Shahharit is a Rabbinic enactment and not Biblical in nature. And, that the Biblical time limit on saying Qeri'at Shema' Shel Shahharit is all day.

comment Is there a mention of the Oral Torah in the Written Torah?
The explanation you bring in the name of HaRaMBa"M is actually taken straight from the Talmud Bavli, Masekhet Berakhot 5A.

comment “'Uf” is Torah?
I just realized that a similar question/objection could be raised to Rabbi Yohhanan's statement that "אין טוב אלא תורה שנ' כי לקח טוב נתתי לכם" (just a few lines down on Berakhot 5A). The object of that statement is "לקח" and not "טוב", an example resembling the teaching in the question.

comment If a woman, whose husband is away, becomes pregnant, is she assumed to be adulterous?
Thanks for the answer. You may consider helping our Hebraically-challenged users by translating the Shulhhan 'Arukh's pesaq. Looking forward to more content from you.

comment When a tzaddik dies, does he leave his positive traits in this world?
For example, Rav Eliyahu Mansour SheLIT"A in a derashah on Parashat Haye'i Sarah brings the commentary asking why the parashah is called "Haye'i" (Life of) Sarah when she passes away right at the beginning of the parashah. The answer he brings is that the lessons taught to us, and the impact made on us and the world, by the tzadiqim is never lost such that they are never considered to have truly "died" (i.e. their teachings are never forgotten).

Can you clarify what it means to "leave their positive character traits in this world to be used by others"? I'm thinking of a few different interpretations to such a statement.
