comment The status of Eliezer as a slave
@Danno Why does the Amoni-who-can't-marry-a-Jew's conversion have no lasting value??? He's Jewish!!

comment The status of Eliezer as a slave
@Danno I'm still not sure I follow. The child of a Mitzri convert who marries a Mitzrit convert is still Asur. The child of an Amoni convert who marries a Jewess (b'isur) is still Asur. Why do you think his daughter would be muttar?

comment Why name Yitzchak after something that is perhaps negative?
He was named already in the previous perek... Bereishit 17:19 Do you have any evidence that this story has anything to do with the naming of Isaac?

comment Why are there no Tanaaim or Amoraaim with the names Avraham or Moshe?
Why would you think there would be Tannaim with that name?

comment Why are there so few Jews if God promised Abraham his children would number like the stars?
If God meant "stars" as 10^3 then what did he mean by "sand"? Certainly, Avraham already knew that there were more than 10^3 grains of sand on the beaches.

Interesting. Aside from making that clearer in your post, do you know of any commentator who has suggested this before you? Or is this your own innovation?

@Fred And the answer would probably be that God isn't a mathematician. I mean, it appears He thought that sand is uncountable!

Clemens is not referring to the Jews' population size. I don't see how this answers the question. There are clearly more living people in China now than all Jews ever combined.

comment The Layman's Masechta (Mishnayoth) for a Siyum
1) Why would chapters be a relevant metric? number of mishnayot is correlated higher with length of time required to study it than is number of chapters. 2) You did not write that.

comment The status of Eliezer as a slave
I don't follow the last point. An Amoni who converts still can't marry a Jewess. Why do you think Eliezer's conversion would have allowed his daughter to marry Isaac?
