not sure if there is the right thread but,
anyone know of a sefer that collects a list of meforshim's question's on Chumash and refers you to where they discuss it- similar to the Shabsei frenkel edition of Rambam (and part of Gemoro) ?

Reading a post from @Jellybelly in another thread in which he recounts the famous story of the Netziv and how he almost became a shoemaker, I was reminded of a funny twist on the story.

Rav Avrohom Levi Bresler zt"l, a Westgate resident, was one of the first victims of COVID in Lakewood, having passed away last year at the age of 58. He wrote a sefer called Nachlas Levi, and he concludes the sefer with a funny quip.



Here's a loose translation:
There's a famous story with the Netziv... (he writes the story, and then continues:) I once pondered that perhaps nowadays a mechaber of seforim will go up to Shomayim and they'll show him a room full of beautiful shoes, and they'll say, "Look what you could've made!"
This line was repeated to Rav Avrohom Yehoshuah Soloveitchik, and he said it in his Chumash Shiur.
I hope that my sefer is indeed useful!

Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

Just one more,

ביאור מהיפה תואר למה מכוסה מבני אדם מה בעיבורה של אשה

איתא במדרש רבה פ' תולדות פרשה ס''ה, ''תני שבעה דברים מכוסים מבני אדם, ואלו הן, יום המיתה, ויום הנחמה, ועומק הדין, ואין אדם יודע במה הוא משתכר, ואין אדם יודע מה בלבו של חבירו, ואין אדם יודע מה בעיבורה של אשה, ומלכות הרשעה אימתי נופלת וכו', ואין אדם יודע מה בעיבורה של אשה, דכתיב (קהלת י''א) כעצמים בבטן המלאה''. ועי' ביפה תואר שכותב וז''ל, אם ידע מה בבטן האשה, אז תצטער האב והאם בימי הריונה אם תתעבר בוולד שלא כרצונם. וגם אם ידעו מראש כי היא הרה ללדת זכר אשר זה חפצם, אז תקטן השמחה בלדתה, ולא יהיה לה הגמול על החבלי לידה, עכ''ל.
But is it still מכוסה מבני אדם?

There are many places in medrashim where they are put in the same category. שדים רוחין לילין וקופין

The נתיבות regarding musical instruments by davening. Reminds me of musical slichos.
