I had ILS in EY and needed USD in NY. I found someone that had an opposite need, and we agreed that for USD he would deposit into my account in NY I would transfer to his account in EY ILS at the current rate (usually looked up by Google search entering XXXXX US to ILS).

At a certain point he asked me if I could advance him a larger amount in ILS, which he would repay me about 10 days later in USD, to which I agreed.  In the interim, the exchange rate broke through the key level of 3.40.

What would be the right amount of USD for him to repay me so that neither of us have a problem of ribbis? Would it be the rate at the time I advance the ILS to him, the rate at the time of repayment, or anything else? It should be noted that in the past no attention was paid to a day or two difference due to smaller amounts and smaller swings in the exchange rate.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I lent my car to someone tonight and he drove over some sort of little bracket and popped my tire. He immediately offered to pay for the replacement, but out of curiosity I'm wondering whether he's actually mechuyav- is this an oneis? The bracket that's lodged in the tire looks too small to be visible from a driver's vantage point....

Pashtis it's a case of שואל שחייב באונסין, but ask a Rav of course to be sure.

Make sure the Rov heard of מתה מחמת מלאכה, that a שואל is not chayev... Either way אמר רבי יוחנן: לא חרבה ירושלים אלא... שהעמידו דיניהם על דין תורה, ולא עבדו [=עשו] לפנים משורת הדין (בבא מציעא ל ע"ב).

Went through my mind, I wonder if this can be בגדר ממ׳׳מ but I might be wrong, worth asking.

Is there a inyan to use the knife over Yom Tov or just to buy it ?
Wondering where this inyan came from and found your post.

  How you feeling? Everything alright? You've been really quiet for the past 5-6 months.

 Your missed very much here around the forum.

https://derher.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Tzimtzum-Article-Av-5780.pdf

We've been through quite a lot since this was posted, but since I just came across an essay that was just published explaining concepts and understandings of Tzimtzum, I thought it would be worthy to post as a response to this (and might also respond to some other posts in various threads, just search DDF for Tzimtzum)

In case the link gets taken down, I've cleaned up the PDF a little so it could be small enough to add as an attachment, and it is hereby attached. I hope I didn't delete anything.
Wow I barely remember posting this, surprised you did!
Thank you so much! Will have a look in depth in the am (and may have some feedback) very much appreciated!!

Doubt this is מחמת מלאכה. And  שהעמידו דיניהם על דין תורה does not mean that when 2 people have a question if one owes the other money they can't ask a rav.

If you need to make sure he heard of something taught in elementary school then maybe e is not the right onew to be going to in the first place.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

In Nusach ashkenaz, when we say l'dovid hashem ori
- At Ma'ariv, we add an additional kaddish after l'dovid
- At shacharis, we simply move the kaddish from after the shir shel yom to after l'dovid

Why is that? Why wouldn't we say a second kaddish after l'dovid as we do at ma'ariv?

What would be the right amount of USD for him to repay me so that neither of us have a problem of ribbis? Would it be the rate at the time I advance the ILS to him, the rate at the time of repayment, or anything else? It should be noted that in the past no attention was paid to a day or two difference due to smaller amounts and smaller swings in the exchange rate.

I am not a halachic authority, but let me ask it to you this way:
- If I borrow a cup of sugar from you, and I agree to pay you the price of a cup of sugar in a week from now:
- If the sugar significantly appreciates in value, I still need to return 1 cup to you, a significant loss to me
- If the sugar significantly depreciates in value - I still need to return 1 cup to you, a significant loss to you

Conversely - if sugar is $1/cup, and I borrow $1 worth of sugar, you only get back $1 worth of sugar at the value when I return it to you. It sounds trivial but it makes a difference.

So my question for your transaction - did you view this as a loan in NIS, or a loan in $?

If you viewed this as a Dollar loan, even though you paid him in NIS, he would need to be pay you back the $$ equivalent.

This sounds like sa'ah bisa'ah which is either ribis dirabbonon or michzi kiribis (don't remember which)
