Question
The Chanukah miracle: A flask with one night’s oil burned for eight nights. But being that there was oil for one night, the miracle actually lasted only seven nights. So why is Chanukah eight nights and not seven?

Question
I know it is unusual to do so, but is there any halachic prohibition or even minhag against having the El Rachamim prayer recited for a deceased family member on what would have been his birthday, and not just on his yahrzeit? Thank you!

Question
Shalom aleichem Rabbi Lauffer. Thank you for answering my last question. In Rabbi Avigdor Miller’s latest q and a email he says “So you might think that the college boys and girls come carrying philosophical books under their arms and Chabad comes to greet them with sefarim like Chizuk Emunah and Kuzari and Moreh Nevuchim and there's a philosophical encounter.” Which sefer is he referring to when he says “Chizuk Emunah”? Who was the author? Thanks a lot.

Question
I believe God is the all possibilities in the universe. If God is all powerful, then He is it and it is Him. Also, this explains God's plan thing, because He needs everything - good or bad - just to exist. I want to know what a rabbi thinks of this thought.
