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.
Will gentiles be resurrected from the dead?
Hello Rabbi, since we’ve witnessed reincarnation among the gentiles, and we know that people will be rewarded with resurrection in the future when the Messiah comes, will non-Jews also be resurrected from the dead?
War Before the Messiah
It seems that the coming war will be of a religious nature, that will bring people to spiritual elevation. Before the coming of the Messiah, must the other religions first fall, and if so, won’t the world descend into chaos?
Why does the Tanach end where it ends?
Why doesn’t the Tanach (acronym for Torah, Prophets and Ketuvim) continue on through the Middle Ages and the development of technology? Why does it end where it ends? Thank you!
Organ donation according to the Torah
I want to know if I'm allowed to donate my organs after my death. This is a very sensitive issue in my family because my brother twice needed a liver transplant. I know there is a problem with organ donation, but is it permitted to save a life or several lives instead of letting the body rot in the ground? Does it affect reincarnation in any way? Thanks and hoping for a fast answer.

Prophecy to be fulfilled in the future
My question is directed to Rabbi Zamir Cohen because it arose after I listened to dozens of his fascinating lectures on the subject of the prophecies in the Book of Daniel and Ezekiel, and I even was present in some of them. After the rabbi gave a thorough explanation about the prophecies written in the Bible, the rabbi stressed that a good prophecy will always come true but a bad prophecy depends on people — as is described in the book of Jonah concerning the people of Nineveh who repented. Rabbi Zamir explained that there are two prophecies about the coming of the Messiah the son of David. One involves a donkey and the other is about the Clouds of Glory — I do not remember the exact words. But the main idea is that one of the ways that the Messiah will come will be glorious and the other way will be the opposite. He emphasized that the way that the Messiah comes depends on the Jewish people. My question is: If there is a prophecy that the Messiah will come on clouds of glory — this is a good prophecy. And if the people of Israel will not be worthy, and the Messiah will come on a donkey, it turns out that the prophecy about the Messiah coming on the clouds of glory will not be fulfilled. It contradicts the fact that a good prophecy must come true. I'd love to get a deep answer. Thank you and have a good month.
Messiah, End of Days & Nations of the World
Shalom. It is said that when the Messiah comes, then almost all the nations will die, and only those who helped us will remain as “lower-class” people. We always say that our religion is beautiful, and really unlike other religions; we always pray only for peace and pray not to hurt another person. How do you explain this sensitive subject?
Why are there youths who throw off Judaism in our time?
As we know, everything has a purpose in our world. What could be the Creator’s purpose or reason for so many people who throw off Judaism? After all, we are losing thousands of Jews and it is already the end of the sixth millennium when everyone should be repenting. Our generation unfortunately seems to be the opposite. How does this bring our world to its rectification or atonement?

The generation of the desert
If the generation of the messiah is the generation of the desert and they only numbered 600,000, so how is it that there are now millions of Jews?

Why did G-d create the world?
How do I deal with the following question: Why did G-d create the world? If He created the world for us to enjoy, why? Why does He need us to do that?
What can we do so G-d will no longer give us tribulations? (query sent after the Har Nof synagogue massacre in Jerusalem in November, 2014)
I have a question that arises every time a catastrophe or an attack happens: What does G-d want from us? What should we do so G-d will no longer give us sufferings? I know the verse, "If you follow My laws ... I will give peace in the land ..." Every observant Jew tries to fulfill the will of his Creator, of course he is not perfect and he also fails sometimes, but generally he is serving G-d. Of course a person can always strengthen his observance and do better, but one can not jump too far and undertake many resolutions at once or even one resolution that he is not ready for, so what can be done? Repenting is the work of a lifetime, and we try to do it all the time. We try to get better slowly and surely. So what does G-d want us to do? We are always trying to serve Him better. I'd love to get an answer because I think that G-d does want something, things do not just happen for no reason, but I do not know what can be done beyond what is being done now.
