00:00 If the Baal Shem Tov stresses outreach, how do we see this in Chassidic groups (outside Chabad)? 6:10 When we hear stories of open miracles for rabbonim, how should we consider these? 10:05 How should we utilize our vacation? 14:51 Is it obligatory to have a Jewish name, and why didn’t even amarayin change Greek names? 21:35 Can a Cohen go skydiving, assuming it’s mutter for anyone?—would anyone else be prevented from going? 25:20 What’s the mesora of secular educations ? 34:20 What is the origin for the mesora of chassidic lavush? 37:35 Are all the words from the Zohar from R Shimon bar Yochai? 44:45 Why did Avraham lie about Sara to Pharoh instead of relying on HaShem? 46:42 Would the plane not be an ohel for a Cohen? 50:32 The Gemara in brachos tell us not to learn Torah/tefillin within 4 amos of a corpse even in one house, and yet it also says under a single roof everything is considered 4 amos. 54:20 the Rambam says when HaShem sends forth physical things to replenish the earth, so what is the difference between the spiritual blessing of snow and rain? 54:14 What are the criteria for Gedolim?—Is it just consensus? (Eg young Ovadia Yosef) 1:04:00 Who is Dovid Ruveni? What is this legendary river Sambatyon?
