Question
I recently discovered the tombstone of a great uncle that I have been looking for for many years. He died in 1896. His brother bought the stone. At the top of the stone is a crown. It is quite large and seems important. Do you have any idea what this crown means?

Question
Gut Voch Rabbis. I had some disagreements with my Rabbi. For the last 2 Shabbatot, my Rabbi Boruch Hashem has given me aliyos, but they have been the shortest aliyos in each Parashah, including the very short aliya in Parashah Naso, the longest Parashah and a Parashah which has several lengthy aliyos. Why would my Rabbi give me the 2 shortest aliyos in 2 consecutive Parashas over 2 consecutive Shabbatot?

Question
Hi Rabbi, we are new grandparents and have not been told what the newborn will be called at the baby’s naming ceremony. Is it usual to wait until after the ritual to tell the grandparents? Thank you.

Question
Dear Rabbi, My parents got sick with COVID, and on a Thursday afternoon, while driving to do something for them, I said that I’m was going to start keeping Shabbat. So, I stopped driving on Friday and rested on Shabbat, but I feel like it’s really hard for me. I don’t know if I can keep doing this and I’m truly not ready to give everything up and I feel bad. I want to do things on Saturday, but I feel like something bad might happen to my parents if I stop keeping Shabbat. What do I do? How do I best approach this?

Question
Dear Rabbi, what on earth was the wisest of the wise thinking when he said, "There's nothing new under the sun?" I wonder if King Solomon would have said the same thing if he had the Internet! Thanks
