comment Why must we acquire Lehhem Mishneh for every Shabbat meal?
You are correct that Shabbat meals are being had thanks to the extra portion. Why, then, the need for two portions of bread at every meal? If we are commemorating the extra portion, should we not need only the one? The other parts of your answer are interesting; but, not immediately pertinent to the question.

comment Why must we acquire Lehhem Mishneh for every Shabbat meal?
FYI - This is brought down as Halakhah by HaRI"F, HaRaMBa"M and HaR"Osh. It is relatively unsurprising, therefore, that it is also brought down as Halakhah by HaShulhhan Arukh. This matter is discussed in Masekhet Shabbat 117B (near the end of the page).

comment Why must we acquire Lehhem Mishneh for every Shabbat meal?
I can see how this answer brings differing opinions, which is important. Nevertheless, "Lehhem Mishneh" (specifically, a double portion) is brought down as Halakhah by the Shulhhan Arukh (HaRav Yosef Karo) Orahh Hayim 289:1 and, respectfully, I don't think this answer sufficiently addresses why that is.

@DoubleAA Did you mean to add to the question by asking why we're not also required to have Lehhem Mishneh when eating on Friday morning? If so, that's an awesome question which I think could stand on its own.

Are there not Rabbinical prohibitions in place as well which include their own punishments for transgressing?

comment Why do Sephardi jews put on the tefillin shel yad while sitting?
Yalqut Yosef, Siman 25, Note 68 writes that the source for this custom can be found in the Zohar HaQadosh, Parashat Hayei Sarah, Page 132 beginning with "תָּא חֲזֵי, צְלוֹתָא דְבַר נָשׁ מְעוֹמֶד..."

comment Genesis 39:20 Potiphar's prison
This appears to be derived from Genesis 39:1 and Genesis 40:3. 39:1 states that Potiphar is Sar HaTabahim. 40:3 states that the baker and cupbearer were placed in the house of Sar HaTabahim where Joseph was jailed. I still don't see any specific hint to Potiphar's basement.

I don't know. That's why I asked, because I thought your answer could benefit from a source. If such an interchange would be better suited as a question and answer, I'm happy to pose it.

How do we know that "Chelev in Halacha refers to certain fats"? The pasuq only says חלב.
