Question
Why do good people suffer? I heard it can be a kappara atonement for a past life. Is this a Torah perspective? If it is, is there a reason why a person would be punished by having to live again and suffer on Earth rather than be punished in Gehennim?

Question
I have a new friend asking me many questions about Judaism. For example: “Does Judaism specifically say anything about enjoying life?”

Question
Israel recently launched a spacecraft to land on the moon and this got me thinking if Judaism believes there is life on places besides our Earth. I’d appreciate your “Rabbi thoughts” on this topic. Thanks!

Question
Hi Rabbi, what does Judaism teach about what people are doing nowadays by going around with cameras and filming in police stations, city halls, post offices and other public places? They call themselves “first amendment auditors,” claiming to be protecting the peoples’ rights of freedom of speech and freedom of the press. But a lot of people, including me, don’t like being filmed by someone I don’t know. And especially if my picture would be published without permission! Don’t I have a right to privacy? Thanks!

Question
Dear Rabbi, I just came back from my first Orthodox Jewish funeral. I didn’t understand a lot of the service, but I was really moved and inspired by being there. What do you suggest is the message I should take from this experience? Thank you.

Good evening! I recently read the book of Ezekiel Chapters 40-48 and was very surprised to read that there will be animal sacrifices in the New Temple.
