Here is this week's riddle:

Who am I???
I merited my position due to the organization that I ran,
But that I was still called ‘the smallest & lowest’, was all 'ד‘s plan.
Loads of money to צדקה I gave,
And when the great רשע died, I too was put in my grave.
Besides the special accolades, I also merited a miracle,
And after I died, my kids were also זוכה ,with the same article.
מי אני???


At this point I'm going to assume that the answer is one of the Trei Asar, since the last three weeks featured riddles about Chagai, Malachi and Tzephania.
I will try to see if I could look into the Navi over Shabbos.

Alternatively, the Gemara (Megilla 14a) explains that we don't say Hallel on Purim because קְרִיָּיתָהּ זוֹ הַלֵּילָהּ, the reading of the megilla is its Hallel.

In that sense, Taanis Esther, which ends with krias megilla, ends with the recitation of Hallel.

Im going to print this and try to work on all these questions over shabbos.

There's one more:
Where in our parsha do we find a dibbur, maaseh or shlichus through a malach? (Can be many answers)

Lol. But that's not the answer. The question should really say, how could Avraham send clothing for Rivka if he didn't know what size she would be?
I saw this answer, and it's based on R' Yissocher Dov of Belz.

Correct!

It should have taken 17 days & took only 3 hours! י"רש tells us on the פסוק of (ב"מ ד"כ (העין אל היום ואבא that he had kefitzas haderech .
The Ohev Yisroel brings from sifrei Kabala that the שם for kefitzas haderech is אהו"ה, which comes from the words א ת השמים ואת ה ארץ.
The Shem is merumaz in our פרשה by
העין ל א היום אבא ו & that’s what Chazal mean באתי והיום יצאתי היום !If one uses the שם in the correct order, the person flies to
his destination. But if one uses the שם but not in order, then the grounds moves. So here it was out of order as it was ה"והא ,therefore י"רש said
!שקפצה לו הארץ

(I copied and pasted this...all the Hebrew words need to be reversed. )

Four asked improperly. Three were granted their request in a fitting manner, and the fourth, in an unfitting manner.
Who were these four people and what were their requests?
(hint: one was in last week's parasha)

These are all ttue, but not what the gemara is talking about. (This is from a gemara and also a medresh Rabba.)
Its referring to someone who made some kind of improper condition with Hashem, asking Hashem to make it work out well.

You're talking about Nichush? When Eliezer made a sign as to which girl he would choose for Yitzchak - the girl who would offer him and his camels to drink.

Yes! That's one.
The gemara doesn't use the word nichush but in Eliezer's case it was a form of Nichush. I don't think it was nichush in the other cases.
