Can I make Kiddush on Beer?
Dear Rabbi, What’s the deal with using beer for Kiddush? I hear all types of things about this, from “You’re never allowed to”, to “Some people use beer all the time - like for Havdalah”. Please clarify, thanks.

Is Saying Good Shabbat enough to Fulfill the Torah Mitzva of Kiddush?
Rabbi, I came to learn in Israel and at Yeshiva we had an argument about the Kiddush Friday night, and some of the really big learners were saying that the mitzva of Kiddush today is only D’Rabbanon since we say beforehand “Good Shabbat” and I was arguing that I know for sure Kiddush is a mitzva from the Torah because my father was careful all the years to use only the big becher Friday night and never the smaller ones that he uses during the day, and he said the reason was because you need “ shiur d’oraissa ”. So maybe you could help me explain to these chevra what’s really right?

Olive Oil for Shabbat Candles - How Serious of a Custom is it?
Rabbi, My wife lights candles every week with the regular white paraffin ones they sell in the store. She lights one for each of us and one for each of the children. I now heard from someone that in order to have children who love the Torah, you must light another two just from olive oil - but this was never our custom. Is it something that we should accept upon ourselves from now on?

Shkiyah and Bein Hashemashot in halacha
Rabbi, I heard from some people that the Mishna Brura was machmir to paskin like shitat HaGr”a to say that the beginning of Shabbat is from the shkiyah , but that in Europe some people still did work after the shkiyah . So is it possible nowadays that someone shouldn’t hold like the Mishna Brura on this? Also, if the Mishna Brura is right and the truth is like the Gr”a, then how’s it possible that some people can still hold like Rabbenu Tam and daven Mincha so late after the shkiyah ?

Mikva Erev Shabbat
Dear Rabbi, Why is it that there are many men who go to the mikva every Friday? I learned that mikva is something that a man goes to on Erev Yom Kippur. Is every Erev Shabbat considered like Erev Yom Kippur or something?

Honoring Abusive Parent
Dear Rabbi, Is it ever allowed to distance yourself (as an adult child) from a parent that is very mentally and verbally abusive? If the parent is very destructive and deceitful and no resolution can be found is it permissible to avoid contact? Thank you.

Laws of family purity
I learnt that the reason for hilchos niddah is to 'renew' the excitement between husband and wife and keep the relationship fresh. In that case, why is relations permitted for the whole 9 months of pregnancy? Isn't that a long time to go without breaking it up?
