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 ?

I'm wondering if you can explain the following: We know that 1-teshuva can erase all sins as if they never existed-and that 2- yom kippur can be mechaper as well. We also know that 3-after 120 years we are shown a 'slideshow' of our lives and it is a source of great shame for us. 4- There is also the concept of gehinom. How do you explain how #s 3 and 4 go with 1 and 2? Is it, or isn't it possible to do teshuva? Thank you.

Why don’t we blow Shofar Erev Rosh Hashana?
Dear Rabbi, Why don't we blow Shofar on the day before Rosh Hashanah? Is it to confuse Satan and make him think that Rosh Hashanah is over? The answer obviously needs some clarification. Does Satan lack a calendar? May we all have a good new Year.

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.
