Hello. I have a few questions to ask:
1) I'm an Orthodox person, yet I do have a non-Jewish Vietnamese friend (purely platonic). My question is; Is it permissible for her to hold the Havdala candle while I make Havdala? Also, can she drink from the Havdala wine (and Kiddush wine / Challa)?
2) Netilat- yadayim after the toilet - only after the hands were dried, is that correct?
3) If I'm having a shower and I happen to soap my feet - my hands will have "Tumah" on them - can I do netilat-yadayim while undressed in the shower first (without a beracha of course), so that I can than scrub the rest of my body with soap? And do I need to dry my hands after the netilat-yadayim, before continuing to soap the rest of my body?
4) If I eat a fruit, for example an orange and say the beracha 'borei pri haetz', and than open the fridge and decide to eat an apple, and after a few minutes I eat a pear - do I need to say 'bore pri haetz' on each fruit separately, even tho they are all fruit and the beracha is the same?
There are many people in the Torah. The righteous are Abraham, Job, and so on. There are many wicked people like Bilaam, Haman, and so on. Who do you think is the most wicked character in Torah? Haman? Esau? Or some other person?
Hi Rabbi, I know that we get light from the moon at night by its reflecting the sun’s light, but is there any special message we learn from the moon’s existence? What I mean is that I assume we could manage without it. Thanks.
If I eat a fruit and say the blessing (“borei pri ha’etz”) for eating fruit, and than open the fridge and decide to eat a different type of fruit, and a few minutes later I choose to eat a third type of fruit: Do I need to say the blessing again before eating each fruit?
