Conditioned Patterns and Punishment
Another question i have is this: does a person get punished for his sins while he is working on getting better in that area? Meaning, obviously we can't fix everything at once, we are supposed to work on ourselves slowly. So if say, one works on his anger and 1/10 times he succeeds, is there onesh for the other 9 times? If yes, can you explain? Thank you.
Why focus on repentance only during Elul and the Ten Days of Repentance?
I’m bothered by something that I see repeating itself every year. The month of Elul comes and especially the Ten Days of Repentance and everyone tries to be “big tzaddikim”, getting up early to pray and saying Selichot, learn Torah scrupulously, give a lot of charity, and in general trying to become a better Jew (me too), but what happens during the rest of the year? Of what use is “repenting” for 40 days if there is no continuation to my improvements during the rest of the year? Why can’t we continue being good for the rest of the year too?

An exam cloth, abortion
1. Can one check for purity with a wipee instead of an exam cloth? 2. Is an abortion done within 40 days, before the fetus is formed (since there is no life yet ...) considered an abortion? Is it is permitted or forbidden and why? Thank you.
