comment Why did Rivka consult Shem, and not Avraham or Yitzchok?
I realize that Sifte'i Ḥakhamim does not address why she did not go directly to Yiẓḥaq.

comment What can we learn from the Jews being commanded to put blood on the doorposts of their homes in Egypt?
Rabbi Eli Mansour echoes many of your points in one of his derashot on Yeẓi'at Miẓrayim. B"N I'll find it.

comment What does it mean to qualify Judaism with the term “Orthodox”?
Since whoever downvoted did not leave a comment, I'm not sure how to improve the answer. All I've done is attempted to summarize HaRav Bar-Ḥayim's response.
