comment Jewish source for “blood and money don't mix”?
@DoubleAA, I asked if my question justified SethJ's belittling response, not any response. I appreciate wanting to keep this site to its guidelines. But, that message can and should be communicated in a more friendly manner, which keeps users wanting to improve rather than upset.

comment Jewish source for “blood and money don't mix”?
Assuming that Avot 5:21 means that literally everything is encapsulated in Torah, I wanted to know if such a statement, which IMHO is fairly wise, is also included in Jewish thought. I'm not sure why my question justified such a belittling response, @Seth J.

comment What is the halacha regarding the expulsion of a student deemed a “nuisance student”?
As HaRav Mansour's closing remark conveys, I think the underlying message is that such a decision "be made with the utmost caution and discretion" and not that expulsion from school is equivalent to execution.

comment Waving the lulav
Per my reading of the question, this answer doesn't really address why we shake the Lulav in each particular direction for each particular word.
