Question
There is gluten free bread on the market that looks and tastes just like regular bread and the bracha is shehakol. Is a person who does not require a special gluten free diet permitted to use this bread to dodge washing hands and benching when doing so is inconvenient?

Question
If I forget to say a bracha before I begin eating an item, and then suddenly remember, can I say the bracha even though I have already started eating it? I vaguely remember that I cannot say it after the fact, that I've missed the opportunity. What is correct? To say it late, or not to say it? Thanks!

Question
Amidah Facts that I know: (1) The first 3 brachot and the last 3 brachot are the same in all Amidah prayers (Shacharit, Mincha, Maariv), except bracha 7 is Sim Shalom at Shacharit and Shalom Rav at Mincha and Maariv. (2) There is no Kedusha in Maariv Amidah. (3) The middle bracha is one bracha for Shabbat and 13 brachot for weekdays. Questions: (Q1) Are Weekday Shacharit and Weekday Mincha amidahs exactly the same? (Q2) Do the words in the Kedushah change? Weekday Shacharit vs Weekday Mincha, Weekday Shacharit vs Shabbat Shacharit, Weekday Mincha vs Shabbat Mincha Thanks.

Question
I have a degenerative eye condition and want to know what the Torah and Chazal say about disability. I really need some chizuk, as things have been very hard lately, and facing the prospect of totally going blind is terrifying. Also, I kind of recall from high school a Medrish or Gemorrah about the Greeks having a statue of Avraham with a limp, and Yitzchak being blind, and I wanted to know if there was more to that, and where its from. Thank you so much.

Question
Dear Rabbi, would you please send me the blessing for eating bread? I cannot find it. Thank you!

Question

Question
The Artscroll Siddur says it is forbidden to recite any Torah passages prior to reciting Birkat HaTorah in the morning. Suppose for some reason you cannot daven the full Shacharit by the latest time for reciting Shema. You want to recite just the Shema before that deadline and then the other prayers later. Since the Shema is a series of Torah passages, are you also required to recite Birkat HaTorah before you recite Shema?

Question
Shalom aleichem. This video came out in the 80’s. It was an introduction to Judaism. Starts with creation, goes on to discuss all the holidays. It featured a family explaining everything about Judaism. I believe the video was intended for children primarily. The “father” had a mustache. In the seder segment the wife eats grated horseradish for maror, says that if you want to feel what it’s like to have fire in your mouth, this is what it feels like. (Or something along these lines). Do you recognize this video and know the name of it? Thanks.
