Q: People often tell me that I have to be careful not to speak about bad things that might happen because of אל תפתח פה לשטן (Berachos 19a). Can the Rav please explain that concept?
Q: The Gemara says, “Chash bi’chol gufo ya’asok ba’torah” (Eiruvin 54a). If you are sick, then you should learn Torah in order to heal. Would the Rav say that one can overlook this chazal and instead go to sleep in order to get better?
Q: Is it better to be a rebbi in a yeshiva ketana, and have to spend a lot of free time preparing to teach, or is it better to be a business man who has can more easily make time to learn for himself?
Q: What do Chazal mean when they says that, “Kol talmid chochom sh’ein bo da’as, neveilah tovah me’menu”? [Tana Di’bei Eliyahu] What does it mean, “A talmid chochom that doesn’t have da’as”? And why is a dead animal better than him?
