Question
Dear Rabbi Becher, Does Gateways plan to offer Torah Study courses, either online or in-person? If not, can you please suggest a few online or in-person courses in NYC or Australia? Many thanks. PS I'm enjoying your book "Gateway to Judaism".

Question
Shalom aleichem Rabbi Lauffer. Thank you for answering my last question. I sort of remember seeing that the Ohr HaChaim HaKadosh discusses the individual characteristics of each Shevet somewhere in his commentary. Can Rabbi Lauffer tell me where in his commentary he discusses this? Thanks a lot.

Question
Moses lived with his wife Tzipporah and 2 sons in Midian for many years. Exodus 4:20 Moses took his family (wife and 2 sons) to Egypt. Did his wife and sons actually reach Egypt? Or did they return to Midian before they reached Egypt? Exodus 18:2-6 Moses' family (father-in-law Jethro, wife, and 2 sons) reunited with Moses. Did this reunion occur after the Exodus from Egypt? In what location was the reunion? Does that mean the family was not in Egypt with Moses? Exodus 18:27 Jethro returns to his home in Midian. Did Moses' wife and children stay with Moses for many years until he died?

Question
Dear Rabbi, please explain why it is said that 'an eye for an eye' that it has something to do with the letter ayin — but I refers to monetary recompense for an injury. I have heard do not know the link.

Question
Dear Rabbi, an 8th grade, 13-year-old student asked me why I accept what Rashi says in his commentary on Chumash. “Couldn’t his commentary be wrong?” Why do we adhere to Rashi so much?

Question
I want to write down the Torah for a deeper understanding about the Torah text. The original Torah is written in Hebrew. Is it OK for a Noahide to write down the Torah text in Hebrew? How about in English or in Korean? Is it permissible?  

Question
My teacher suggested avoiding at least some TV shows and video games because of the violence and immorality. I’m not asking your opinion about TV, but, based on this reasoning shouldn’t one also avoid Torah study since it also tells about historical violent and immoral acts? Thanks, Rabbi.
