Rabbi Keleman Shiur
Rabbi Kelemen stated (see 21:47) that he admits that it could be possible that initially the future lie was presented to the nation but it could have later segwayed into the past or present lie. Hence, how can he discount the future theory so easily now if this future-explanation is consistent with the sociological phenomenon of the Jews' believing that their ancestors heard G-d speak? Thank you for your time.

Why Keep Kosher?
What are the benefits of keeping kosher? Why do Jews keep kosher? Is the reason for keeping kosher related to health?
Hello. I'm a rabbi jew that converted but the thing is i converted myself because no one in my area is willing to get me through the conversion process. Is this considered ok? I live in a town with very small percentage of Jews. A few rabbis I tried to get a hold of but they were not willing to help me with conversion. So I had no choice but to convert myself. I love Torah. Very much! I followed all of G-D's commandments. Can a conversion just mean that a person is passionate with Torah and loves the jewish people and wants to be part of the Hasidic community good enough? I'm also getting an Aliyah process of me going to live in Israel. And one of the requirements of the Aliyah is to have a letter showing that i covered. If i tell a rabbi that i converted myself due to no one helping me convert, would that be acceptable? I'm also planning to fly to Israel and go to a synagogue over there and learn more Torah. A rabbi doesn't need to go to rabbi school just to learn torah. Because who has $60,000 plus in their pocket? Not many. So could i just learn torah and just be a good rabbi and follow G-D's commandments with zero cost in a Israel synagogue?

Donation of Organs
Bsd. Kewod HaRav, in my country Holland we are faced with a growing popular movement, which wants to legalize physician assisted suicide and euthanasia. On top of it, a law has been made by the House of Representatives, which will make every citizen an automatic donor of his of her organs. What does our Halacha has to say about these related topics? Our fear is that human life will be artificially extended or terminated, in order to harvest the organs of a human being. Kind regards, Meir Schrover.
