Question
Dear Rabbi, I recently took a college class to better understand my Jewish heritage. Now my question for you is this: Why is the “mitzvah system” of the 613 commandments considered so important? The concept of a “mitzvah system” seems to have a very special place in Judaism. Why, Rabbi? Thanks!

Question
Hi Rabbi, I’m Jewish but never had any formal Jewish education. I want to start studying but also need to work, so I’m wondering if Torah study is meant for someone like me or only for fulltime scholars. Thanks!

Question
Shalom aleichem Rabbi Lauffer. Thank you for answering my last question. If one's Maxwell House haggadah has a sticker on the front advertising a free haggadah if one buys a can of Maxwell House coffee, and further advertisements for Maxwell House coffee in the haggadah itself at the beginning, would he still be able to use this haggadah at the Seder? Thanks a lot.

Question
Shalom aleichem Rabbi Lauffer. Thank you for answering my last question. If an American living in America sold his chametz to a non-Jew before Pesach, but then went and bought chametz from the store on the last day of Pesach (Yom Tov Sheni shel Galuyos), would that chametz be forever assur ba'hana'ah, or would it not be because de'oraisa the Pesach was already over in Eretz Yisrael. Thanks a lot.

Question
BRAND PRODUCT TYPE SYM-BOL STATUS Lipton Teabags-(Decaffeinated) Pareve OU Symbol required. Kosher for Passover without special certification.   EXCERPT from OU Kosher Passover list. Am I correct that the symbol required means OU symbol? If I understand the above excerpt correctly, I may use Lipton Decaf Tea Bags on Passover even though they do NOT have OU-P symbol. They only have OU. Am I correct? Thanks.
