Question
I heard that drinking wine is not good for one's health. Is it compulsory to drink wine during Kiddush? Can the blessings of Kiddush be recited only wine? Can a Jew recite Kiddush over water or honey instead of wine?

Question
Just saw the recent question from someone else about honoring parents. I’ve always wondered if ‘obey’ is a part of honor part of this commandment requires one to obey one’s parents very strictly under all circumstances (with the obvious exception of a parent’s command to violate Torah law). For example, is one strictly required to obey one’s parent asking for a favor or chore, even if s/he is too lazy? Is one required to obey one’s parents’ wishes to enter a certain profession, even if s/he does not wish? Is one required to obey a parent’s command to refrain from engaging in a certain activity that many people normally do that in itself does not violate Torah law? Is one required to obey one’s parents’ command not to associate with a specific person?

Question
Hi, I’m beginning to observe certain Jewish practices, but want to remain “normal” — if you know what I mean. Not too strict but still doing the right thing. Any guidance for me? Thanks!

Question
Two questions: (1)With regard to the mitzvah of shooing away the mother bird and taking her eggs, the reward for which is longevity, is it true that if the nest is on one's own property, it is not eligible for the completion of this mitzvah because it is on one's private property rather than in the public domain? (2) So if a nest with eggs appears several times on one's property and because the reward is longevity just like with honoring one's parents, is it possible that the Divine message within the repeat occurrence could possibly be to remember to honor one's own parents? Seems like a likely connection since Hashem communicates with us always. Please elaborate on this, if you will, in terms of this particular mitzvah and its relationship to longevity. Thank you so much.
