Q:We say Avinu Malkeinu during these days of teshuva and I noticed that in Shemona Esrei, in the bracha of teshuva (השבינו) and in the bracha of selicha (סלח לנו) we use those words. Why is Avinu Malkeinu used in those brachos specifically?
Q: The Rav taught us the principle of הרואה שיסורים באים עליו יפשפש במעשיו – that when we see that troubles are coming upon us we should search out our ways and do teshuva. But how should we react when we see troubles come upon others?
Q: In some seforim they make it sound like doing teshuva is not so hard. It’s a process, but it’s not so hard. But in other seforim it says that it’s a big avodah of changing who you are completely. What’s the truth?
