Mr. Emunah, The name of the Galilean outlaw: Ben Omri, Simon Ben Omri.

Another question (this one from "The Harp"): Which chapters of tehillim are useful for one who struggles in kedusha inyanim?

Where was the final resting place of Gimli?
And of Samwise son of Hamfast?
And of Sam's wife, Rose?

Are you referring to the famous Gimli Glider? I believe its final resting place is at Mojave Airport in California.

As for Sam(I am)Wise, he did not want to eat Ham so he had to Fast.

I would assume their burial place is in the cemetery- perhaps even the one Obor Mottel and his wife visit to relax...

As for the question about tehillimzugging [if you're allowed to quote yourself, I'd assume you're allowed to answer your own questions...]:
In "The Harp" page 104 Meir Uri Gottesman
He greeted Aharon, who met him near the entrance. “Our teacher Rabbi Tzaddok will give a shiur today,” he announced happily. ־It will be on a very difficult subject, machshavah pesulah — forbidden intent during the altar saciifices — and we must prepare carefully.”

Avigdor, Aharon’s study partner, was already in his place, twirling his thumb and murmuring. Aharon and Yoseph could see him from afar. Watching him, Yoseph could not contain his feelings.

“I don’t think Avigdor cares for me much,” he confided in Aharon. “He not only doesn’t say a shalom aleichem, he also doesn’t even turn in my direction.” He shook his head in vexation and began walking towards their place.

Aharon grabbed him abruptly by the sleeve and held him back. “Yoseph, don’t be so quick to criticize Avigdor.”

“I’m not criticizing, but how hard is it to say a shalom aleichem?”

“Would you believe, Yoseph, that my brother Avigdor is locked in a great battle with himself? His Torah is his only weapon against his own impulses, against his yetzer hara. Only with Torah can he keep himself pure. Believe me, he is a kind person, and he is proud of you — but he is caught in a battle.”

“I don’t understand. What kind of battle? Why is he different from you or me?”

“Levite, do you not sing the Psalms? Some start with the word mizmor, some start with shir, and some start with laminatzeiach — a song of victory! Let him be who he is, as you are who you are!”

What are Herbs?


Are you referring to Herb Paine from "The Morning Star"? [He was one of Rabbi Shtayner's greatest opponents- he even stormed out when the Rabbi brought Jeffery into shul- no way I'm taking herbs!]

D: The ones from seder Kodshim and Taharos

Almost right; Proper answer: Ada and Daru. Why? as he
"Do you need to even ask? This is the Kodshim chamber: Zevachim, Menachos, Bechoros, Tamid. Tell me — where are the zevachim and where are the menachos? Where is the ketores and where are the hazayos? Do you see the kohanim perform the avodah, or the Leviim rise up in shir? The Mikdash is in ruins, the mizbei'ach is destroyed, and we may not step even one foot on the Har HaBayis! How shall we rejoice here?"
