    Thank you for all you do!

    Men are not able to doven with a minyan because shuls had to close. Chassidim in communist Russia risked their lives for the frierdiker rebbe to help yidden to do mitzvahs. Does Hashem really want yidden to violate halacha and not doven with a minyan? Will He forgive them?

    from 3/19. The reason why the Yid in Leipzig came to the women is pashut. It was probably cause someone who knew he found the money dragged him to her. 😷

    Why does Hashem want us to stay inside? I am so bored.

    My name is Meir. I am 11 and I live in Russia. I go to online school which, unfortunately, is in Hebrew, which took long for me to learn. I am basically always in quarantine, sitting in front of a screen from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM. I always come late, i hardly ever wake up on time. I feel and think I don't learn in school at all. I feel like I am going insane! It is hard enough to learn in online school especially in Hebrew, my 3rd language. I get distracted a lot so my parents got filters. i figured out how to go around those filters so my parents got better filters, nothing helps. I end up going on YouTube the whole time I belong in class and afterwards, and then sometimes I sneak the laptop into bed and watch videos the whole night. Then I sleep the whole day so i get into trouble and that just makes me angry. I know I am wrong but feel like I need something to do. The city I live in seems to only have girls, especially because i have a bunch of sisters and only 1 toddler brother! what would be your advice for someone in my situation?

    Dear, rabbi YY Jacobson, I have a question. I wanted to know how can I focus more on the רחניות and not the גשמיות?

    Is there a phone like to listen instead of being in then internet?

    Thank you so much for the answer

    Dear, Rabbi YY Jacobson With all that is going on in the world right now I decided its time to grow and bring positivity into my home but every time I try to do so my mothers perspective on the virus and how im choosing to deal with it just always happens to change me and the mood in the home to not such a good one what do you suggest I do about it?

    Eliyahu Age 8 Far Rockaway NY why are our eyes nose ears and mouths in the spot they are in. If they were in different places it would be not as easy to get the virus?

    Dovid age 5 Far Rockaway NY why did the corona virus happen?

    | Hi I always listen to u for anything ! Usually on toura any time but now it doesn't have your new updates do u have a # where its straight for u ?

    Hi Rabbi Jacobson. I have a question. Wasn't the whole world created so that we should serve him? And the rest of the world is there to help us serve him? It seems to be that the whole purpose of coronavirus is here to make the world recognize that there's a God behind everything. But why make the world recognize, in Way that makes it harder for us to serve him? Like no shul, no school etc.? It's harder to bring in pesach with no stores open for shopping. And our lives are being endangered too. Thank you C.S. Landau
