    Questions from London

    1. Lekovod rabbi YY. Keep my name anonymous please. I live with my mother whose remarried. It hurts her and her husband that I talk to my father. What am I supposed to do. London 15years old bochur. 

    2. My babby has asked me to ask, 

    If this epidemic is effecting just older people. Is there a separate message for them whose lives are more at risk. Sheindy Lipschitz 9 years old.

    3. For the last 2 years, my family had to rely on school lunches to feed my family. I am told that Hashem takes everything into account. And you mentioned the bal Shem tov about a leaf. How can me a 9 year old boy has to scrape through life without the basic essentials. Moshe 11 years old. 

    4.i am 14 years old bochur. I have a nisoyon of taking money from my parents without them knowing to buy cigarettes. Don’t tell me to quit cause I have tried numerous times. What can I do to get money a diff way?

    5. I’m 12 years old girl. I’m a quiet girl and find it hard to make friends. During the lock down I have not been in touch with anyone and I’m afraid that when I get back to school I will be left out and have no friends.

    6 Thank you R YY for the advice about trying to speak up on the conference call. It really made me feel a lot more confident after I did that. Shiffy beigel

    7 I’m a chosson. I want to push off my Chasuna date so that I can have my friends and family at my Chasuna. It’s once in a life time for me! My parents though want a small house affair. Please help me. 


    8 Bochur 14 years  Yosef Chaim Landau Every time I get a text to day tehillm, do I have to say tehillim. I sometimes don’t feel connected and if it still active. Should I feel guilty or should I just say one kapitel to be yoitze?

    9 My parents are very strict about social distancing and I’m cooped up in a 3 bedroom flat seeing all my neighbours much more easy about it and having a good time. Please help me cope with this. Baruch Levy 19 years. 

    10 My name is Suri I’m 14 years old. 

    I always feel that girls are talking about me behind my back  and making fun of me. I don’t have courage to stick up for myself and I feel very hurt. 

    How can I overcome my feelings?

    11 we scorn upon the Arabs for their barbaric treatment of people who are criminals when they cut off their hands and when they kill people for various sins yet in the Torah we find the exact same treatment in the time’s of the Sanhedrin etc for chilul Shabbos and many other aveiros?

    Rabbi Jacobson ,

    Your class in Yiddish was wonderful. I hope you may continue. While talking to young people you touched many important topics. I think it would be great outreach for all the new and old Yiddishists. Will you give it next week? I will invite the Yiddish vinkel of Houston to listen. You have a very nice yiddish accent!
