Fasting over one’s sins
In the past I did immoral sins, but now I married a worthy woman and accepted upon myself to avoid sinning in the future, expressed regret, and confessed my sin. Is that enough for my sins to be forgiven or do I have to accept all kinds of extreme measures as mentioned in the holy books, like fasting during a night and a day, redeeming myself with money especially during Elul, the Ten Days of Repentance and the 8 weeks beginning with the week when they read Shemot? Or maybe my sins were forgiven already?

How Do We Relate to G-d after Witnessing Natural Disasters?
Shalom, Rav. I have an important question: Why is it that we see such atrocities happening in the world which seem to be very bad and cause a person to feel far from Hashem? I always hear that whatever Hashem does is for the good, but there seems to be so much suffering in the world, that it is difficult to accept the fact and feel secure that the Creator does everything for the good while at the same time you see such terrible things. Especially now that we see, even among Jewish communities, that everyone thinks Hashem will protect them and nothing will happen, and then in actuality you see that even they are affected by a natural disaster.

On the aftermath of the Jerusalem synagogue massacre
Recently there were a number of tragedies in Israel, including attacks, causing much pain and suffering. Everyone says that the Messiah is truly almost here, and that those who were killed in the synagogue were an atonement before the coming of the Messiah… I ask myself, how different were the disasters and terrorist attacks in our days from those that occurred 70 years ago or 2000 years ago... during the Holocaust and the Inquisition, which were much worse. Probably then they also said that the Messiah was at the door and would soon come. They did not know that even after 70 years and more, the Messiah still wouldn’t have come and the exile would still continue. So how are we supposed to be cheered up by such statements? How different is the present from the past ?? I'd love to hear your answer.

An additional questin i was asked following Harav Zamir Cohen’s visit in Baltimore
I was asked an additional question here in Baltimore following Harav Zamir Cohen's visit to our community, and would appreciate if you can answer. There are a few concepts in the Torah that i simply do not understand. The Torah commands us to behave with such care towards animals - to releeve it of a heavy load, to be carefull not to cause it any pain and even to save it if it is in trouble. How then is it possible that this same Torah commands us to do things such as throwing a goat off a cliff " la'azazel," or performing a Brit Millah, which is a painful procedure which is not done under anesthesia, on a tiny baby? I understand that we humans are the crown of creation, but why must thses actions be done with such cruelty?
Difficult to recite Psalms
1. A friend at work undertook several months ago to read 2 chapters of Psalms a day. She mentioned to me that she feels uncomfortable with some of the Psalms, specifically those chapters where David asks G-d to punish his enemies and that bad things should happen to them. She said that some of these verses call for "violence" and it doesn’t seem appropriate to the Torah and that one should love every Jew. How can you ask for bad things to happen to others, even if they are your enemies? I would be grateful for an explanation on the matter because it really bothers her. 2. It says in one psalm “A song, a psalm by Assaf.” Who was Assaf? Thanks.
