Q:Does one need to have friends or does a wife suffice?
Q:Based on what the Rav spoke about tonight, about how Avraham Avinu was careful to take a wife for Yitzchok only from his family and not from any of the converts he had made, would the Rav say that it’s proper to avoid being mishadeich with a gi’yores?
Q: The halacha is that if one has kavanah during the first bracha of Shemonah Esrei but is sleeping through the rest of davening he’s yotzei. But if he has kavanah by all the brachos but sleeps through the bracha of Avos then he’s not yotzei. What’s so special about this first bracha?
