I have many dreams about demons
As of late, I have been having many dreams about demons, and there is also an angel in these dreams and he helps me and protects me from the demons. In addition there is also a girl that helps me but I do not know her and I've never seen her in real life. The demons all the time want to kill me because they say in the dream that I had ruined their plans (I have no idea what they're talking about). And in my last dream yesterday, this girl was not there, nor was the angel, there were just the demons that in the beginning began to burn me and afterwards cut me with a knife and that's how I died. But the dream doesn’t end there. I appear in the Afterlife with a white light above me. I ask someone to take me with him. But nothing happened after that. I remember that I came back to life as a demon and here ends the dream. What does it mean, and why lately have I had so many dreams about devils who want to kill me? And I also have no idea what’s the reason no one tells me anything in the dreams besides I ruined their plans (of the demons). Thanks in advance.

Shalom, I have been living in Switzerland for a few months, and while it is my husband who is the rabbi, people come to me for advice. I had a friend here who suffers from terrifying nightmares.

In the latest dream, her father is chasing after her with a knife and everywhere she goes there is something that is protecting her from him. Is there a connection?

Is my future husband a cohen
Q. I began the process of converting to Judaism half a year ago and I would like to know if my husband is considered a kohein (Kohanim are Jewish men who are determined to be of direct patrilineal descent from the biblical Aaron (also Aharon), brother of Moses). His grandfather, of blessed memory, on his mother’s side was a kohein, and was even buried according to the customs of the kohein. Would he be considered a kohein based on what we know about his grandfather?
Circumcision - The Day When Blood Coagulation Begins
Dr. Armand James Quick: “It is not a coincidence that the religion of Moses sets its ceremony for circumcision on the eighth day.” In other words, only on the eighth day of life do blood clotting substances reach their all-time high – well beyond the amount that will accompany a normal human being for the rest of his life
