Is there an Obligation to eat Kugel or Chulent on Shabbat?
Rabbi, please tell me: Is it true that if I don't eat "Kugel" and "Chulent" on Shabbat that I become like the worst possible rasha (wicked person)?
The Cutting of the Omer
Dear Rabbi, I'm studying presenting the Omer offering and have some questions. I hope you can answer (some of) them. Just after sunset before the Omer offering it was harvested by 3 men, during a cheerful ceremony. Why 3? Where there 3 sheafs? Is there any significance in it being 3 instead of another number? It's my understanding that on the day the paschal lamb was prepared the above mentioned sheaves where bound/tied while still in the ground. At what time of the day was that done? Just after sunrise, noon, just before sunset? Another time? Last question, before those sheaves were bound they were selected. Was that selection done on the day the sheaves were bound or X days before that?

Differences of opinion in matters of Halachah and customs
Hello, I was appointed Rabbi of a community in the west coast in America. Last year and last week an elderly man that participates in my Daf Yomi lecture raised a question. He asked that if there is one True Torah, why are there so many differences of opinion when it comes to laws and customs. What can I answer him?
Blue Tzitzit Thread
G-d promises us that the Torah will never be forgotten by the Jewish people, and what we have today was what was given to Moshe on Mount Sinai. Nothing was added or changed. If so, how can it be that the tchelet thread used in tzitzit, which is a mitzvah from the Torah and the method for its preparation was given to Moshe on Mount Sinai by way of the Oral Torah, is any different from other mitzvoth that we can no longer keep, such as those of the Bait Hamikdash? We don’t keep those mitzvoth because the Holy Temple no longer exists, so why don’t we still prepare and use tchelet thread in tzitzit?
