comment Is it possible to get a copy of the Dead Sea Scrolls texts?
I think he was asking for the TEXTS of the DSS, not pictures of the scrolls. As far as I know, there is no place online that lets you read those texts for free...

How do you pronounce that name? Shouldn't you give the GET to your wife, not you getting a GET from her?

comment Source for Africans being Caananites?
Afriki in Chazal usually refers to Phrygia, not to Africa. Also, see Radak (to Obadiah 1:20) who writes that some Canaanites fled to Germany ("Almenia") and Yossipon (ch. 1) who writes that some Canaanites fled to Eastern Europe and they are known as slavs (related to the word "slaves").

comment When something is lost, tie a knot
Very interesting. There is definitely a Jewish tradition associating tying of knots with witchcraft and demons, but I never heard this one in specific. I will try to look into it and see what I can come up with.

comment Is there a limit to the number of names you can give someone?
Yes, his name is El. It just seemed strange to write Hashem's name on its own (unlike, for example, in a name like Eliyahu.) Pardon my "frum reflexes." - Rebbetzin HaQoton
