comment How did Vashti grow a tail?
+1, nice interpretation. The only problem is, why Gavriel of all angels -- he is, after all, the symbol of middas haDin (or of law and order if you like), and in your interpretation, he seems to be the one breaking the rules.

comment How did Rivkah give Yackov Eisav's clothing? Isn't borrowing without permission tantamount to stealing?
Perhaps indeed they were meant like that, perhaps not. But what gave her the right to take another man's property?

@sam that answer is a machlokes acharonim, there is a strong opinion that stealing from a thief is forbidden.

comment Relationship between Gold and Awe of G-d
interestingly, R' Tzadok haCohen brings in Takanas haShavim the comparison of R' Yochana with a silver goblet - explaining that pure silver when you look into it has a red shade, and so R' Yochanan was a manifestation of middas haDin. Thank you, this was very helpful.

comment Relationship between Gold and Awe of G-d
Thank you very much. Connection of awe to gevurah is straight-forward, but I was wondering if you could list a couple of connections between gold and gevurah that are more drush and less sod. I did upvote and accept your answer already, thank you this is very helpful.

comment May one host irreligious guests on yom tov?
Heard from my rav that as long you don't cook portions - i.e. instead of counting 1 turkey wing per guest, make cholent without count, or just a large number of items without personal count, it's ok to cook like that.
