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.

comment Did the Israelites walk bare foot in the desert, or did they have shoes (comment on Deut. 8:4)?
All of the above. I was studying Miqra'ot Gedolot on the parashah (highly recommended).

I just read this yesterday and was about to post it. Thank you for translating/summarizing for our Hebraically-challenged user base.

It sounds like this question would be better-suited for a Yiddish/Hebrew SE site.

comment If a non-religious person is of Jewish heritage, can one wear the Star of David?
Dear @Maria, welcome to Mi Yodeya and thanks for the interesting question. You might be interested in learning that Judaism is an "identity" passed down matrilineally (through one's mother). Unlike in Christianity, where a child must be baptized to become a Christian, Judaism is an identity one inherits from one's mother (or chooses when converting to Judaism). That makes you a Jew! Congratulations! As such, there are hardly any cases I can think of in which a Jew wearing a Star of David would be forbidden by Jewish law.
