Q:

From where can I get the courage needed to listen to the Rav even when he says something that doesn’t sound right to me?


A:

Well, if you have a good Rav then it means that you’re the one who’s wrong. Not him. Now sometimes you might choose the wrong man. That could be too. You must choose a good Rav. If you’re careful to choose a good Rav – a ben-torah, a frum Jew – and you don’t like what he said, then most likely the fault lies with you. Most likely. Most likely.

Q:


W
hen we pass by a theater or another place that spreads immorality should we pray that it should burn down?

A:

What’s the question?! I don’t understand what’s the question. Hakodosh Boruch Hu is soneh zimah, He hates immorality.

Q:

What should I do if my Rebbe is in the next world?

A:

It’s a very good idea for you to keep honoring him. Very good. Very good. But in the meantime, find somebody who’s in this world too.

Q:

Is it better to daven a long Shemonah Esrei and to thereby miss kedusha?

A:

Absolutely! But it depends however on what you’re thinking. If you’re thinking that I’m davening a long Shemonah Esrei in order to make a “hit” with those around me, then absolutely not. Some people do that, by the way. I see people doing that. But if you’re doing it because you want more time to think about what the words mean, then there’s no question that it’s a very good investment to daven with kavanah.
