comment The level of the man is determined by his wife Talmud
Is it possible you're referring to the Talmud Bavli in Sotah 2B where it states in the name of Resh Laqish that a woman is paired with a man according to his deeds (אין מזווגין לו לאדם אשה אלא לפי מעשיו)?

FYI - "Smart" is slang in the UK for "well-dressed" (link)

comment Are the strangers in Deuteronomy 14:21 converts?
This question is a little bloated: it includes three or four questions / sub-questions. If I had the ability, I would vote for clarification from the author.

comment Waiting Less Time on Shavuos
Qitzur Shulhhan Arukh - Yalqut Yosef (Orahh Hayim 494:21) states the same.

And upon which source or precedent did the RaM"A or "those countries" base the founding of such a custom?

comment Is there a mitzva to make known the truth of Judaism to non-Jews
In the way of @DoubleAA, from whence have you learned that it is not a mitzwah to missionize? Why might you think that spreading the truth of Judaism would be a mitzwah?

comment If a woman's voice is considered nakedness, why would he ask to hear it?
I'm still bothered by the pasuq; but, the more I think about @wfb's earlier comments, the interim answers and the rest of what's going on in Shir HaShirim, the more I'm realizing the question might be baseless. She is permitted to him. Despite her voice being her nakedness, the greater context makes it quite clear that they are permitted to one another such that any her nakednesses (sp?) are not forbidden to him. Should I delete the question?

Can you provide any support for your claims?

comment If a woman's voice is considered nakedness, why would he ask to hear it?
@Scimonster I purposely didn't include the pasuq as I cited it twice. If you think it's really necessary, go ahead and leave it. Otherwise, I think it just clutters.

comment Do any Jews, ancient or modern, hold that Michael the Arch-angel is the coming messiah?
@curiousdannii RaSh"I on Daniel 10:13 (Hebrew, English‌​) makes it quite clear that Mikha'el is not human. See also Rabbeinu Sa'adiah Ga'on on Daniel 10:13 (Hebrew).

comment Mirror for Teffilin
While you are right that he is addressing Lo Tilbash, he also clearly states that it suffices for one to check one's tefillin with one's hand and one need not be so stringent as to check them in the mirror.

comment What is the order for putting on a tallis katan in the morning?
This question makes many assumptions, which make it somewhat difficult to answer accurately. I think those assumptions should be delineated. For example, there are those who say one should not make a berakhah on a Tallit Qatan at all if one will be donning a Tallit Gadol shortly thereafter.

comment Who wrote the Toldos Aharon on Chumash?
Can you link to a page of Humash with such commentary? That may help in the search.

comment From where do we know that sexual intercourse with a non-jewish woman is forbidden?
Would the fact that a non-Jewish woman is, by definition, a niddah (as she is unable to purify herself of niddah status while not yet being Jewish) not automatically prohibit relations with her? @Matt, did you mean "isn't voted more highly [...]"?
