Hi, can you settle a debate I have been having with some of my friends? Is it permissible to 'light Shabbat candles' using electric bulbs? If so, would you be able to say the blessing? Thanks and Shabbat Shalom.
Dear Rabbi, a friend is dating “out” and I mentioned to him that I really hope they don’t get married. He asked me “Why not?” I told him because it’s wrong, but I didn’t have any solid arguments. He’s a logical person, and I’m sure will seriously consider what I tell him, so I hope you can help me out here. Thanks.
At what age should my wife and I start making sure our son is observing all the kashrut laws? He is just turning one and since we do keep kosher, we're starting to feel awkward about giving him his milk bottle before bed when he has just finished a dinner consisting of meat.
Since Ishmael was Abraham's first son, then wouldn't he be a Jew also?
When Hashem told Hagar that Ishmael would be a great nation, to what nation was Hashem referring?
Why is it when Isaac was born, Hashem referred to him as Abraham's only son?
