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.
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 ?

Tshuva Erases Sin
I have the following question about a seeming contradiction re: teshuva. On the one hand, we are told that tshuva erases sins and that each year we begin 'anew'. On the other hand, we are told that after a person is niftar they are shown their whole life and it is a source of tremendous shame for them. Can you explain please reconcile this for me? If we do tshuva then shouldn't all those aveiros be erased from the 'video'? What's the point of the teshuva? Thank you.

Is the Rebbe from Lubavitch the Moshiach?
I am a bachur from yeshivat Hesder who is now on a trip in Vietnam. I was just sitting in the Beit Chabad and after learning Gemara and Halacha from the Rav, I discussed with him whether the Lubavitcher Rebbe z”l is the Mashiach or not. The list of proofs in the affirmative is long, and I didn’t give the Rav an easy time… I was arguing with him, but in the end I feel I have received my answer. I will list the proofs in short, and then I would greatly appreciate to know what you have to say on this topic. 1. The Rebbe was a descendent of the Maharal from Prague, who was known as a descendent from David Hamelech. 2. The Rebbe learned Torah “like David his father”. The Rebbe’s father z”l was a Rav in the second largest city in Ukraine, who was also a Mekubal and also authored sforim with great Torah depth. 3. The Rebbe was at the forefront to begin the Tshuvah movement. 4. The Rebbe “fought the wars” of Completeness of Torah - by founding Batei Chabad throughout the world; encouraging the Chabad Yeshivot to publish new insights in Torah every number of months; by publishing the largest number of sforim ever by a single person which include great depth and cover all areas of Torah; Completeness of the Jewish nation – The Rebbe was the one who fought against the warped law of “Mi Yehudi”; Completeness of Eretz Yisrael - The Rebbe was the one who begged and warned not to give back even one “foot breath” of Eretz Yisrael. 5. The Rebbe himself strengthened the community when they sang for him “Yechi Adoneinu Moreinu V’Rabeinu Melech Hamoshiach L’olam Va’ed”. 6. When they came to the Baba Sali z”l and asked him whether the Rebbe from Lubavitch is the Moshiach, the Baba Sali stood up and said: “Nu, everything is fitting for him”. 7. The Rebbe called the Beit Knesset in his house at 770 – “Beit Moshiach”! Thank you for your time to answer this question.
