comment What can we learn from the Jews being commanded to put blood on the doorposts of their homes in Egypt?
Thanks for the reminder, @Monica Cellio. The derashah is "Parashat Bo: The Lesson of the Moon" from 2014 and the segment I recalled when reading your answer is 11:25-30:25. R' Mansour basis this segment of his derashah on the Be'er Yosef (R' Yosef Salant).

This was also my initial inclination. Do you have a source?

comment What is the source for making a bride happy at her wedding?
In a Shelom Bayit pamphlet published by one of my Rabbanim from Yeshivat Aish HaTorah, he cites the same Tur you cited here. He brings down from this Tur (seeing as how the emphasis is on the bride) that the guests' job is, as you say, to endear the bride to her husband thereby helping them enter their marriage with utmost joy.

comment What does the word “Mevoar” mean in “NaKh Mevoar”?
This appears to be off-topic as per the Help Center. You may consider supporting the Hebrew Language Area51 proposal as mentioned here.

comment Example of Solomon's 3000 parables or 1005 interpretations
Are you asking for an example of anyone listing 3000 parables (or interpretations thereof) for a given verse in TaNa"Kh? Or are you specifically asking if any of King Solomon's parables (and interpretations thereof) have survived to the present day?

Which Rabbi Becher? I'm not sure this answers the first part of the question: "what's the meaning of [...]".

comment If the Torah says that Yaakov was blind, how could he see Yosef's sons?
Respectfully, this answer could be greatly improved if formatted and phrased more succinctly.

Or HaHayim HaQadosh on the verse also brings down the Tanhhuma you cite (specifically 48:8).

IMHO RaSh"I does address this as @user6591 points out in his answer.

comment Are you yotzei yedei chovah if you forgot to bow during shemoneh esrei?
@DoubleAA I wrote "spelling", because I'm tired. I've never tried to edit an edit summary, so I'm not sure if it's possible. Also, I've never seen "מידי", so I was trying to give Ani Yodea the benefit of the doubt in my last comment. If "מידי" is indeed correct, I'll gladly revert my edit.

comment Are you yotzei yedei chovah if you forgot to bow during shemoneh esrei?
@DoubleAA Perhaps it's grammatically correct to say "יוצא מידי חובה" in Hebrew; but, the phrase I'm most familiar with is "יוצא ידי חובה". I attempted to transliterate "ידי" according to what I thought is Ani Yodea's shittah.

@GershonGold Why don't you post the Netiv Yashar's commentary as an answer? It's beautiful.

This is a tough one. Neither RaSh"I, RaMBa"N, Ibn 'Ezra, Or HaHayim, Sifte'i Hakhamim, MaLBI"M, Abarbanel, Sforno, RaDa"Q, RaShBa"M, The Rebbe's Sichos, Tarqum Onqelos, Tarqum Yonathan, Midrash Rabbah, Midrash Tanhhuma, Yalqut Shim'oni, The Zohar HaQadosh nor the Talmud Bavli make any comment whatsoever.
