Q:

Why do you oppose the study of secular subjects? Didn’t the Vilna Gaon study secular subjects?

A:

I didn’t mention secular subjects at all tonight. I did not mention it at all, so I’m innocent. However, on the question of secular subjects, there’s no question at all that knowledge of secular subjects comes in handy. No question at all; very handy. The problem however is where to get it from; that’s something else.

Q:

In regards to tefillah would you say that the prayers of a Jew and l’havdil a non-Jew equally effective?

A:

The answer is no. Because we have a principle that we repeat every day three times, כי אתה שומע תפילת עמך ישראל ברחמים — You Hashem listen to the prayers of Your people Yisroel, with mercy. Which means one of the special privileges of the chosen nation is that Hakodosh Boruch Hu listens to their prayers. That’s a clear cut statement.
