comment Rambam Epistle to Yemen identification
@ Albert, some of that additional information is directly relevant and deserves to be edited into the question. And the second part of your comment deserves its own question. @Yishai It's not anonymous. It is attributed to Abraham Halkin.

This just got interesting. Are you implying that kahal and k'hila are actually masculine and feminine versions of the same word?

comment “Qof, Qof” What does this mean?
Asking, not complaining. It seems a little misleading to source the phrase thusly when the one that appears there is a different one, albeit with the same initials.

comment “Qof, Qof” What does this mean?
I believe the phrase there is "kahala kadisha", which is an Aramaic translation of @ElShteiger's suggestion. Does "k'hila k'dosha" appear there as well?

comment Is there a term for doing a mitzvah the same way every time?
I'm pretty sure this is an interesting question. Are you sure the source you're thinking of was speaking of mitzvos in general and not that particular mitzva?

comment Source of the word “teva” for nature
@DoubleAA Gesenius has those senses as the same root, implying that the "nature" meaning is related to the part of things that is "embedded" in them.

comment Books on Politics
@Bochur613 The first Wikipedia link is meant to point to this deprecated page, which itself quotes the Abarbanel but gives no citation. Since there are so many books on the topic, maybe you would like to narrow down your specifications to get more satisfying answers.
