Question
Is there any requirement to toss bread in the water during Tashlich? In recent years, I have heard a lot of people say that tossing bread in the water is ecologically bad, and that pebbles or leaves should be substituted.

Question
Gmar chasima tova! All our tzadikim, Avraham, Yitzchok, Yaakov, that are in olam Habah right next to the kisay hakavod. What are they lacking that won’t be fulfilled till mashiach comes and they get tichias hameisim- what is so great about techies hameisim as opposed to olam habah?

Question
Genesis 7:11 In the second (Iyar) month, the seventeenth day of the month the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up,and the "windows" of heaven were opened. Genesis 8:4 And the (Noah's) ark "rested" in the seventh (Tishrei) month on the seventeenth day of the month upon the mountains of Ararat. In these Torah passages heaven's windows opened in the month of Iyar (healing time) and the flood mabbul~ Mem~Bet~Vav~Lamed began. The ark also "rested" in the seventh month [Tishrei "head" of the year ushering in the High Holidays, Rosh Hashanah, the Ten Days of Repentance, Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Simchat Torah]. Both of these extraordinary events occurred on the seventeenth day of the month. Will you connect the dots for me? Why Iyar seventeen? Why Tishrei seventeen? Does number seventeen have spiritual significance? Thanks, for all your invaluable insight.
