comment Onkelos Commentary
@ray, Rabbi Posen is in fact Orthodox (here's a video of him if you'd like to see what he looks like: youtube.com/watch?v=JllL1WQ0Zs8). For earlier authors who understood this statement about Onkelos not necessarily straightforwardly, see my answer to this question: judaism.stackexchange.com/q/34755/489

comment Most original form of the Hebrew Bible/Tanach
@DoubleAA, Koren is quite well-known for their attention to the accuracy of the text (unlike many other chumashim you might find at your local Judaica shop), while also being quite affordable and easy on the eyes. I didn't claim it was the most accurate of texts.

comment How do we know that we have free will?
@Eagel, Not at all. Just that that cannot logically be inferred from the above verse.

comment What are the consequences of Vashti’s dual nature?
@ephraimhelfgot, The quote from Shemos and it's translation as "beast" is not a joke. Check any translation to the Chumash, as well as much of the second chapter of Bava Kamma. Only the comparison to Esther was in jest.

comment Is it proper to supply a picture of a girl prior to dating?
I heard a story about a specific Chassidish rebbe (now I can't remember which) that was asked this question. He responded (in good Chassidish pronunciation): "loi yai-usse ze bimkoimaini lusais es hatzira lifnai habechira"

comment Me'or Einayim Maharal and Sdei Chemed
You are assuming that the Sdei Chemed had access to Maharal's writings. Is there a basis for this assumption? Does he quote Maharal in any other location that you know of?
