Question
Hello, I am not Jewish. Please excuse my ignorance. I come here to seek understanding. I am an artist and I am on my own spiritual journey, as I am sure we all are. I want to make a painting with the Tetragrammaton of the Latin alphabet I am currently using as the subject of the piece. It will be elegant and made with the greatest respect I can give to it. My question is if it would be seen as disrespectful to Jews even though my intent is to make something highly spiritual and glorious. More importantly, would you see it as disrespectful to God? I will add that I am agnostic/unsure and searching from a Catholic background. Thanks!  

Question
I wanted to see how the original Hebrew language expresses the phrase in Isaiah 44:5 “unto the LORD” or “belonging to God”. I can’t read Hebrew lettering so could you please write it out with English letters. I had been told it was “Le Adunai Ani” but I don’t know if that is correct. If possible could I get an answer back by in the morning? I’m so sorry to ask. Thank you so much!

Question
Shadchan (rabbitzen) asked me why do I want to get married. I told her that G-d commanded this in Torah to Adam. She asked me a very legitimate question: "Who heard that G-d commanded it to Adam or who witnessed it, if there was no people? Who can prove that G-d ever spoke with him about anything? How do we know that G-d ever spoke to Moses, besides 10 commandments that 3 million people heard it? I think this rabbitzen has a very legitimate questions. I don't know how it relates to shidduch, its more like philosophical venue disscussion, But apparently this is very important thing to find out for shidduch process. P.S. I don't think there any real answers on questions like that... Thank you. With respect. David

Question
hello esteemed Rabbi can you please pray for my wife and I to find success with our job search and a good home for us to have for a long time and to have many children? Please 🙏

Question
Shalom, Rabbi. We have obligation to pray. However, it is obvious that HaShem knows what we need and want before we pray. Then, why do we have to pray? Isn't it heresy to pray because it is an action of denying the fact that HaShem knows what we want before we pray? Isn't it denying omnisience of HaShem?

Question
1) question on genesis: i will just go verse by verse so you can see my thought process 1 - god begins creating the universe 2 - the earth is unformed, but there are waters??? (I can see this being poetic or symbolic) 3 - some form of light is made 4 - light is separated from darkness 5 - light is day, dark is night 6 - water is separated from water (waters from 1:2??) 7 - the sky (atmosphere is created) 8 - the expanse is called heaven 9 - dry land appears from waters ... we know that land came before water, so how could this be? 10 - dry land is called earth 11 - plants come to fruition ... we know that plants need the sun, so how did they grow?? 12 - more vegetation 13 - evening / morning stuff 14 - the sun / other stars are created 2) questions on ages: if the ancient hebrews (such as avraham) followed a solar calender, then how did they live so long? humans couldnt not have physically lived that long. this would naturally lead me to think they measured years differently, but the torah makes it seem like a solar calender is in place (genesis 1:14 for example)
