Question
Why is there an observance of the Sabbatical Year that recently began on Rosh Hashanah? All I know is that we should refrain from working the land in Israel and treat its produce in a special way. Thanks!

Dear Rabbi: Any words of wisdom on last week’s tragedy in Meron? I am having such a hard time processing it. Like, how could such a tragedy happen on the day when so many people stopped dying? The first thought that went through my mind was, "God, You gave us coronavirus and we weren't together all last year. This year, the rabbis who are Your messengers, said it's okay to be together, and this happens?" I just feel numb and I know the Jews are resilient people and we will make it through this, but I am having a hard time processing it now... Thanks and Good Shabbos.

Question
Shalom Rabbi. SHIN MEM RESH VAV NUN Shomron has the word eagle nesher or nshar NUN SHIN RESH . Could there be a Remez (hint) here pointing to America? The bald (bare nakedness pudenda nude place) eagle is symbolic of America . Seeing Shomron is associated with idolatry, harlotry, filthiness & apostasy. Seems it's a PERFECT MATCH. I respectfully regard your wisdom.

Question
Hi Rabbi, why isn’t the Jewish population larger than it is? We recently read in the weekly Torah portion that Abraham was promised by God that his descendants would be countless like the dust of the earth and the stars in the sky. Thanks.
