Parochet with bells
Question: I went to a small community for shabbat the other week to visit my cousin. They gave me the Kavod of Ptichat Ha’Aron. When I started to open the Parochet I heard a ringing by the floor and I realized the Parochet had little bells at the bottom, I guess like the clothing of the Kohen Gadol. When I moved it made a ringing sound. I wasn’t’ sure what to do but since I did not want to make a scene, I opened it as carefully as possible making minimal sound. Was I correct?
Wafers for dessert
Question: The other day I had lunch, a sandwich, at work. After I finished eating, a friend asked me if I wanted to have some wafers and I agreed. Did I need to make a Mezonot on them or was it exempted by my original bracha?
Peanuts and almonds on Rosh Hashana

Nuts in a Rosh Hashana cake

Religions have always caused dissension among people, wars, destruction and corruption. Within the religions we see only hatred towards infidels and other religions. I am very worried about Israeli society, I see that even within the religious community, there is hatred toward those who are not part of one’s own circle. Isn’t the Torah in a nutshell all about “You shall love your fellow man as yourself.” How will we achieve that?

How do I change a bad atmosphere at home?
Rabbi, I testify to myself that I'm smart, hard-working, good-hearted supportive, giving and friendly to everyone, loving and will apologize when necessary. However I am also critical, impatient and dislike insincerity, disloyalty and divisiveness. My husband is smart, helpful, loving, and dedicated to the children. But he does not change and isn’t moving ahead in life — not getting an apartment, purchases, more involvement in Torah study. He doesn’t see a danger — for instance, if the children are next to something hot, the children climbing up on the couch and jumping, or running wild. Because of this quality, I often am nervous that the children will get burns or fall and harm themselves. I am always devoted and available for the children, he chooses when to be there and when not. Sometimes he lies and shouts curses at me. I want him to spend more time with me and the kids, but he would rather be at work. He tries to stop everything I want to buy or do, and little by little I have to decide by myself. I try be very modest in my talk, dress and behavior, although sometimes I get riled up and want to give up. Once I used to talk a lot with him, today just a little because I feel I’m getting nowhere and it's frustrating. What hurts me the most is that the children feel the atmosphere and they see how we relate to each other, and their own behavior imitates ours. I try to pray and do everything so things will improve, I will try also, G-d willing, to do whatever is necessary ... So what should I do ???????????????

How can the Torah be true? There are some contradictions!
The Torah is full of contradictions, for instance, the flood. There isn’t enough water in the world to make a deluge in half the world. How did the animals come to Noah? How did they have food to eat? How could the Ark hold such heavy cargo? How did they have room for the millions of animal species? And many other questions like these. And do not say it was a miracle; I'm not interested in all sorts of crooked answers. I just want to know the Torah’s simple meaning. If you can not answer, then the Torah is refuted. Thank you.
