comment Learning History on Shabbos
Yossipun is probably not Josephus, but a hebrew compilation made much later: judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/16403/…

comment What is the proper hebrew pronunciation of Rav Hirsch's first name?
I think this is the same kind of question as "How does 'Yosef Dov' become 'Yoshe Ber'"

revised What was Rav's relationship to R' Hiyyah?
link to the relevant talmud. Also, even though it is the same gemara as the question, it should probably explicity cite the masechta and daf

comment Why is Techiyas HaMeisim not explicitly mentioned in the Torah?
A while ago (so the details are fuzzy) I hear a shiur from Rabbi Paltiel. He discussed different Rishonim's views about reward and punishment. If I remember correctly, he says that the Ramban holds that the only rewards discussed in the Torah are physical rewards, since spiritual rewards (including Olam Habah), can't be described and quantified. I think this is the Shiur: insidechassidus.org/spring/29-spring-parshas/…

comment Are you yotzei through accented pronunciation?
@Scimonster: Perhaps a Kal V'chomer. If Kiddush, which is a Biblical obligation, it doesn't matter, then the text of prayer, which is a Rabbinical obligation, shouldn't matter.
