Q: If it’s true what the Rav said tonight that a mother can have such an important influence on a child’s spiritual development, why did Eisav turn out so bad? Why didn’t Rivka’s righteousness make Eisav a better person?
Q: Chazal tell us that one of the nissim in the Bais Hamikdash was that the ner ma’aravi always burned longer than it should have. So why was it such a big neis that on Chanukah the oil burned for eight days?
Q: The Rav mentioned earlier that a parent should use the word “please” when speaking to a child. But doesn’t saying the word “please” imply that the fulfillment of the request by the child is really only going to be a favor on the part of the child?
