Seeing Inside Opaque Objects
The Talmud states that the Jewish people used the light from the clouds to examine internal bodily organs; a precursor to modern imaging techniques that allow us to view inflammations and diseases within the human body.This is remarkably similar to our own use of X-rays, ultrasound, CT scans and MRI imaging techniques, so familiar to us today

If people were punished for their sins in the Holocaust, then are the Nazis guiltless?
During a lecture I watched, the question was addressed to Rabbi Yosef Ben-Porat: “Where was G-d during the Holocaust?” From watching the video it seems that his view is that the Jewish people were punished during these days of wrath and experienced the horrors of the Holocaust due to their assimilating and deviating from the straight path. The Nazis carried out the punishment and were merely tools implementing the Creator’s punishment. If this is the case, then we have to accept heaven’s decrees, and how can we complain against the Nazis? This sounds absurd and incomprehensible, but there is no other logical conclusion from his well explained and organized lecture. Nevertheless, we say may the Germans and Nazis’ names and memory be blotted out. Isn’t this remark implying defiance of G-d’s Will? His words are incomprehensible. His excellent and coherent explanation and his conclusion seem to completely contradict each other.

Prophecy to be fulfilled in the future
My question is directed to Rabbi Zamir Cohen because it arose after I listened to dozens of his fascinating lectures on the subject of the prophecies in the Book of Daniel and Ezekiel, and I even was present in some of them. After the rabbi gave a thorough explanation about the prophecies written in the Bible, the rabbi stressed that a good prophecy will always come true but a bad prophecy depends on people — as is described in the book of Jonah concerning the people of Nineveh who repented. Rabbi Zamir explained that there are two prophecies about the coming of the Messiah the son of David. One involves a donkey and the other is about the Clouds of Glory — I do not remember the exact words. But the main idea is that one of the ways that the Messiah will come will be glorious and the other way will be the opposite. He emphasized that the way that the Messiah comes depends on the Jewish people. My question is: If there is a prophecy that the Messiah will come on clouds of glory — this is a good prophecy. And if the people of Israel will not be worthy, and the Messiah will come on a donkey, it turns out that the prophecy about the Messiah coming on the clouds of glory will not be fulfilled. It contradicts the fact that a good prophecy must come true. I'd love to get a deep answer. Thank you and have a good month.
