00:00 As society gets wealthier, will there be a point when we don’t need to give Tzedakah? 1:30 the Gemara in brachos raises a contradiction wherein HaShem gives over the earth to everyone but also that he owns everything until someone makes a bracha (including non-Jews) 4:16 The rambam says the mitzvo of the building of the beis hamikdash will follow Eliyahu HaNavi but the Temple Institute wants to build it now. How does the Rav respond? 10:48 Regarding Gilgul, can one accidentally learn in the merit of himself? 16:30 What is the status of someone who (medically) died either through CPR or more mystical means as with R’ Zeira? 20:56 is there any halachic ruling that we can follow a minority opinion in extenuating circumstances? 22:53 What’s the difference between saying Torah is G-d because his will and essence are the same and the Christian trinity? 27:30 Why does HaShem allow the Jewish people to continue when maybe 1% are doing what they’re supposed to? 31:43 why did the Mishna Brurah became the main source for Charedim over the Aruch haShulchan? 39:51 it’s brought down that the descendants of Amalek converted to Judaism who taught in Bnei Brak, but why didn’t we kill them? 47:27 What is the sfara of the reform rabbi who doesn’t believe HaShem gave the Torah? 50:07 Why isn’t the 7th of Adar a taanis anymore for Moshe Rabbeinu yohrzeit? 52:50 should one pray for rain in the winter if he doesn’t like rain re: poor kavana?—what if it is societally injurious? 55:22 Are we all like a Cohen Gadol on Purim? 57:38 which of the tribes would a ger end up belonging to?
