Living in residential towers
I want to buy an apartment in a residential tower. The problems that I am aware of are a Shabbat elevator, and a water pump that provides running water to the faucets. 1. Is a Shabbat elevator acceptable according to all views, and is the approval of the two institutes, Halperin Institute and Tzomet Institute, for the elevator acceptable in this matter? 2. Is there a problem with getting water? 3. Are there any other halachic issues I should be aware of? Have a good week and thank you in advance.
Counselor with a non kosher phone
I'm a counselor for youth in danger, in Brooklyn. I had a non kosher smartphone, but I changed to a kosher one over half a year ago. It's been very difficult for me with this kosher phone; at times I need to go to websites for my job purposes and for my friends. Can I buy a non kopksher phone line and a simple phone? Thank you.

Using a non kosher microwave
I have a slightly complicated question from one of the students here. She converted here in the United States in San Francisco and she is asking as follows: “My parents are not Jewish, and I am a convert. From time to time I go to visit them and when I do, I bring lunch along with me from my home. My question is if I can heat it up in the microwave (which is definitely not kosher). If not, can you suggest a way I can heat it up in this situation?” Thank you, May Farber

Getting out of debt and repenting for a serious sin
I am reading a book called "Garden of Richess" written by Rav Shalom Arush. The problem is that I am in debt (heavy) and even by working hard is still not succeding to pay it off. I got scared today when I read that if one " prevent pregnancy by spilling seed" is transgressing sever prohibition from Torah. Unfortunately, I did do that. It is written that I will be severely punished for it and the greater part of punishment happens in this world by drawning in debt and loosing money. This is exactly what happens to me. Only now I realize how bad what I did really is. I am wondering, what can I do to get Hashem's forgiveness in this world and in the world to come? Can I fix it? I don't want my family to suffer because of my mistakes.
How to fix the personality trait of an evil eye
They always write about how careful one has to be from the evil eye, how to cancel its effect, and how to get away from it, but how does one fix it if one has it?? One who already has an evil eye, and harms people and scares them ... How can he get out of it?? Isn’t it something you can not control? One who has this — is there anything he can do?? Is there no turning back ??

Kosher supervision on vitamins
We are confused about the kosher supervision of vitamins, since we are israelis living in Florida, USA. We do not know the halachah over here, and we wanted to know if vitamins need kosher supervision. I bought vitamin D that has the American seal of O. U. D (D meaning dairy), which, when it comes to food, I don't eat. My question is: when it comes to vitamins or medicins, is there a difference?

What does it mean that the Torah is a blueprint of the creation of the world? Rabbi Gottlieb responds in style
A few years ago, as I was gradually starting to become stronger [in keeping the mitzvoth (commandments)], my daughters were already learning at a local mamlachti-dati (public-religious) school. I wasn't happy with the education there (cursing, hitting, inadequate tzni'ut (modesty). Therefore I transferred them to a Chabad school. At the time, I had heard that it was a school with values and modesty. From 3 rd to 5 th grades, it was really OK; however, this year many girls that come families that do not keep Torah & Mitzvoth (the commandments) and naturally modesty, registered in the school. And even though the Principal talked and wrote a few times to the parents to be strict about modesty, nothing was done and things remained the same. Now, I've been privileged to register my girls (the oldest already going up to 7 th grade and the youngest to 3 rd grade) in a chareidi (ultra-Orthodox) school in Kfar Gideon. And now I'm afraid that my daughters will not find their place there, since they've already tasted the Olam hagashmi (the materialistic world) – T.V., mobile phones and electronic games – since their friends, both in school and at the moshav (village) have no connection at all to the Torah. I want so much for them to be successful in the new school! How can I convince them? How can I teach and instruct them for a life of Torah & Mitzvoth and to love the Torah and love Hashem (G-d)? Unfortunately, I had a TV at home, and I've been privileged to get rid of it and I also took away the not-Kosher cell-phones from them. But the environment has such a strong influence on them; they are so weak. If a friend/neighbor that is not tznu'ah (immodest) comes to us, my youngest daughter always says, "why do I have to put on skirts and long-sleeved blouses?" How can I strengthen them? Can the teachers in school give direction for the weak girls or not? Thank you very much,
