Question
I have a question about doctors. My friend went to one, saying he had pain from a sprain and was told to take Tylenol. He really wanted a prescription for something much stronger and feels the doctor is not fair and doesn’t care enough. He said that Judaism teaches, “The best of doctors deserve severe punishment in the Afterlife.” Huh???

Question
Hi, from where in the Torah or oral Torah we find that we have to live with the time? And slavery is no longer allowed regardless if it is a Jewish slave or not. Thanks, Jonathan.

Question
There is a middle aged woman in the community I can’t stand. I wish I could have nothing to do with her, but she always turns up at social gatherings where I am and bothers me. At least once a month it seems, she ends up at a Shabbos meal where I am invited. She knows many of the same people I do. How can I avoid her and get her out of my way without speaking lashan hara about her?

Question
I saw you wrote in an earlier answer that it is best to distance yourself from wicked people. But isn’t it a good idea to approach wicked people in order to try to convince them to mend their ways?

Dear Rabbi, I hope you can advise me. Someone in school is constantly insulting me. I’m fat, I’m stupid, I’m a loser, blah blah blah. What does Judaism teach about how I should respond to such insulting behavior? Thank you so much!

Question
Rabbi, I am a 70-year-old fit Jewish divorced woman who has had two heart attacks within a year. I light candles, partake in some study and observe all holidays. I have one son, single, 27, a mature physics PhD student who is now taking a more active role in his mother's life, a good relationship. I am no longer a candidate for stents and bypass and was told that I have 3 years to live. Rabbi, what questions do I ask myself to make each day count more?

Question
Dear Rabbi, I have a neighbor who is an Orthodox Jew who just tested positive for COVID-19, but is asymptomatic. He was told by the local health department that he must quarantine for 10 days, but he is ignoring all guidelines. He is leaving his home, going to supermarkets, shul, and the homes of others for Shabbos, and having others over his house. He acts like rules don’t apply to him. He openly opposes vaccines and I have never seen a mask on his face. What can I do about him in a way I can avoid speaking lashon hara or getting him in trouble with civil authorities?

Question
Is Judaism able to identify the descendants of King David in the modern world? If 'yes,' who are they? If 'no,' when did the line end? Thank you.

Question
In the Torah it states that in Biblical times people lived to be hundreds of years old. How is this possible, given the fact that people don't live nearly as long today even with the advances in medical technology?
