The context there is Pinchas telling Moshe, didn't you taught us that if one is having intercourse with Aramine women, is to be killed by zealots? and that's Moshe answer to him.

I have asked this question to R Moishe Bane, the president of the OU, and he responded Thanks for the interest. I came across Rav Kook’s thought in an essay of his that I read in a rabbi’s home library in 1979. I have spent hours searching for the journal and have yet to track it down. I recall it was published in the second half of the 1920’s. In ...

מעיד אני עלי את השמים ואת הארץ, בין ישראל בין עכו״ם, בין איש בין אשה, בין עבד ובין שפחה הכל לפי מעשה שהוא עושה - כך רוח הקודש שורה עליו. (Seder Eliyahu Raba 9). And Avoda Zara 3a (Rabbi Meir). See also Rambam, end of Shmita ve-Yovel.

Rav Ro”i Margolit answers the question at yeshiva.org.il. He says: המקור ל"בית נאמן" הוא בשמואל א' כ"ה כ"ח, בדברי אביגיל לדוד: "כִּ֣י עָשֹֽׂה־יַעֲשֶׂה֩ ה' לַֽאדֹנִ֜י בַּ֣יִת נֶאֱמָ֗ן". והמשמעות היא בית נכון וחזק העומד לדורות, כלשון איש האלוקים בדבריו לעלי (לעיל ב לה): ובניתי לו בית נאמן והתהלך לפני משיחי כל הימים. The source for "בית נאמן" is ...

A quick search on Sefaria turned up a piece of §567: כי אז אהפוך אל עמים שפה ברורה לקרוא כלם בשם ה' לעבדו, אמר ליה קיסר לרבי תנחומא תא נהוי כלנו עמא חד דכתיב כי אז אהפוך וגו'. א"ל לחיי מיהו אנן דמהלינן לא מצינן דנהוי כוותייכו, אתון מהולו והוו כוותין, אמר ליה מימר שפיר קאמרת מיהו כל דזכי למלכא לישדיוה לביבר, שדיוה לביבר לא אכלוהו, א"ל ההוא אפיקורוס הא דלא ...

R. Elazar of Kozhnitz is cited as finding an allusion to the idea that one receives power of blessing (requesting) on their birthday in the verse (Ps. 2:7-8): אֲסַפְּרָ֗ה אֶֽ֫ל חֹ֥ק יְֽהוָ֗ה אָמַ֘ר אֵלַ֥י בְּנִ֥י אַ֑תָּה אֲ֝נִ֗י הַיּ֥וֹם יְלִדְתִּֽיךָ׃ שְׁאַ֤ל מִמֶּ֗נִּי וְאֶתְּנָ֣ה ג֭וֹיִם נַחֲלָתֶ֑ךָ וַ֝אֲחֻזָּתְךָ֗ אַפְסֵי־אָֽרֶץ׃ Let me ...

The book in question is called Aharit HaShanim, and was indeed published anonymously by Aderet, with his own approbation. It discusses the topic of vidui ma'aser.

I don't know if this is the exact story you're thinking of, but the first story in People Speak ("The Scar") is quite similar. The first few pages of the story are contained in the Google Books preview. Notably, in this version it was not a bandit that attacked the girl but a group of youths, and the weapon was a wooden beam with a nail sticking out rather ...

There are two inter-related but separate mitzvot here, one of tzedakah and another of maaser, separating from one's income (some opinions dispute if maaser is really a formal mitzva or a highly praiseworthy custom one should follow). R Avrohom Chaim Feuer writes in his book The tzedakah treasury (pp. 122ff) The mitzvah of tzedakah is really only half of ...

The Maharshal siman 92 brings from the Sefer Chassidim(I could not find it ) that one should not go into a fast with meat and wine nor break their fast on meat and wine. I dont believe this is codified in the classical halachic texts. Text of Maharshal:

The source for this is Megillah 21a תנו רבנן: מימות משה ועד רבן גמליאל לא היו למדין תורה אלא מעומד, משמת רבן גמליאל ירד חולי לעולם והיו למדין תורה מיושב. והיינו דתנן: משמת רבן גמליאל בטל כבוד תורה The gemarra says choli, sickness, and not chulsha, weakness. It seems all the manuscripts say choli. However, the Meiri (ad. loc.) quotes (or paraphrases) the ...

The source for putting the wine on one’s eyes seems to be Pirkei d’Rebbi Eliezer ch. 20: רבי אליעזר אומר: לאחר ששותה אדם כוס של הבדלה, מצוה להטיל מעט מים בכוס של הבדלה ושותה כדי לחבב את המצות. ומה שישאר בכוס מן המים מעבירו על גבי עיניו. למה? משום שאמרו חכמים, שיורי מצוה מעכבים את הפורענות.

Ketubot 62b says that Rav Yehuda HaNasi was a descendent of King David. This most likely means his father Rav Shimon ben Gamliel (II) was as well. The Wikipedia entry for Hillel says he also was a descendant of King David: According to the "Iggeret of Rav Sherira Gaon" (a comprehensive history of the composition of the Talmud from the 10th century), ...

Rabbeinu Yonah in Sefer HaYirah 203 Here and Here writes, that there is an obligation to honor your father's brother and your mother's brother. [See footnote in the Mekor HaYirah who questions the source.] The Birkei Yosef YD 240/21 brings this from Rabbeinu Yonah and from the Sefer HaChareidim.

One such book is called Zecher Lemikdash (5649), on the laws of hakhel. You can see his haskama on the first edition here. The second posthumous publication (5706) names him, with additions from his manuscript. (Bibliographic information that helped me find the two editions came from here.)

Not only the tribe of Levi, but any man of all the inhabitants of the earth, whose spirit has moved him and whose mind has given him to understand to set himself aside to stand before G‑d to serve Him, to worship Him, to know G‑d and walk justly as G‑d has created him, and he cast from his neck the yoke of the many calculations that men seek — this man has ...

R. David Luria, ibid., suggested that R. Yehudah’s suspicion (or, precaution) may have stemmed from the fact that in his day, due to penurious conditions, it was common for multiple young rabbinic students to share one blanket (San. 20a).
