Double ring ceremony
Question: I am B’ezrat Hashem going to get married in few weeks to a wonderful girl. We are both Baalei Teshuva and we will B’ezrat Hashem build a beautiful home. There is one issue, our parents insist that we do a double-ring ceremony. They told us is important for the bride to give the groom a ring as well since it shows he is also bound to her. They will be terribly upset if we don’t. I don’t want to cause problems and bad feelings, is there any problem if she gives me a ring afterward just to make them happy?

Is the Rebbe from Lubavitch the Moshiach?
I am a bachur from yeshivat Hesder who is now on a trip in Vietnam. I was just sitting in the Beit Chabad and after learning Gemara and Halacha from the Rav, I discussed with him whether the Lubavitcher Rebbe z”l is the Mashiach or not. The list of proofs in the affirmative is long, and I didn’t give the Rav an easy time… I was arguing with him, but in the end I feel I have received my answer. I will list the proofs in short, and then I would greatly appreciate to know what you have to say on this topic. 1. The Rebbe was a descendent of the Maharal from Prague, who was known as a descendent from David Hamelech. 2. The Rebbe learned Torah “like David his father”. The Rebbe’s father z”l was a Rav in the second largest city in Ukraine, who was also a Mekubal and also authored sforim with great Torah depth. 3. The Rebbe was at the forefront to begin the Tshuvah movement. 4. The Rebbe “fought the wars” of Completeness of Torah - by founding Batei Chabad throughout the world; encouraging the Chabad Yeshivot to publish new insights in Torah every number of months; by publishing the largest number of sforim ever by a single person which include great depth and cover all areas of Torah; Completeness of the Jewish nation – The Rebbe was the one who fought against the warped law of “Mi Yehudi”; Completeness of Eretz Yisrael - The Rebbe was the one who begged and warned not to give back even one “foot breath” of Eretz Yisrael. 5. The Rebbe himself strengthened the community when they sang for him “Yechi Adoneinu Moreinu V’Rabeinu Melech Hamoshiach L’olam Va’ed”. 6. When they came to the Baba Sali z”l and asked him whether the Rebbe from Lubavitch is the Moshiach, the Baba Sali stood up and said: “Nu, everything is fitting for him”. 7. The Rebbe called the Beit Knesset in his house at 770 – “Beit Moshiach”! Thank you for your time to answer this question.
Celui qui doit compter le Omer et qui se trouve dans des toilettes.
Question: Bonsoir, ce soir avant la nuit je me suis rappelé que j'avais pas compté le omer, de toute la journée. Aussi, normalement j'aurais pu avoir le temps de le faire pour ne pas perdre la brakha, mais à ce moment là, je me trouvais dans une salle de bains. En effet, je travaille dans une maison de repos et c'est le moment où on lave les personnes qui ne peuvent le faire seules. Je tiens à noter que ces salles de bains contiennent des toilettes. Aussi, ce n'est pas possible de les laisser seules même pendant quelques instants. Cela ne se finit qu'à la tombée de la nuit, et alors j'aurais perdu la brakha. Alors, je l'ai quand même fait, mais je ne sais pas si j'ai bien fait et si c'est valable. Merci de me répondre rapidement parce qu'entretemps je continue de faire le omer sans brakha.

Said the wrong bracha
Question: On Leil Haseder we made two brachot, on Matzah, Hamotzi and Al Achilat Matzah. I got confused during Chol HaMoed and I thought that since it is Pesach, we say only say the special bracha of Al Achilat Matzah. I didn’t say Hamotzi. When I told my friend, he said it was Shulchan Aruch bracha Levatala and I didn’t make a bracha Rishona the whole Pesach. Is he right?

Reading the Megilla with many people
I pray in a synagogue close to me with about twentysomething members. There is another synagogue close to my house which is much larger, about one and hundred fifty members, but I prefer to pray in the smaller one. Someone told me that on Purim it is important to pray in a big minyan, because the more people there are the greater the Mitzvah is. Do I need to pray in the larger synagogue where Ima not a regular, or can I just pray in my regular small minyan?

how old is the western wall
What is the meaning of animal sacrifices in Deuteronomy. Why reinstitute these instructions now, when the 3rd Temple is not yet built. It seems cruel and unnecessary in the modern age.
