Question
Dear Rabbi, something bad happened to me and I was upset. My friend told me that I was “overreacting” and “being irrational” – which made me even more upset! What right does she have to judge me? Does the Torah address this issue of judging another’s feelings? Thanks.

Question
Hi Rabbi, I have a question that I’m not comfortable about asking my local Rabbi. Once in a while I have thoughts about dying and it frightens me. My wife and friends tell me not to worry about it; that I’m normal and just try to ignore such thoughts and concentrate on happy thoughts. What would you as a Rabbi advise me? Thanks in advance.

Question
Decades ago I read a Jewish scripture that meticulously listed the possible causes, or contributors, of sin, two of which were stipulated and enumerated, among others, as: lack of sleep too much travel among, as I say, other causes or contributors. Do you know which scripture this might have been? I would be grateful to be reminded because I can't for the life of me, recall which book it was. Thank you, kindly, Robert
