❓ Questions of the Week:
1. "How do we determine the balance between when Raban Gamliel said that he can't just put on Shabbos begadim to greet his father- as Eisav did- because he wasn't on that level, and he didn't want to look like a faker; and the concept of "Mitoch shelo lishmah, ba lishmah"? (submitted by anonymous)
2. "Wondering if there is anything that can be proven absolutely? Do I just have to believe, or can something be proven? (for example - my existence)" (submitted by anonymous)
3. "How can there be a machlokes on a metzius? Let's say did this and this happen to the yidden in the midbar, etc." (submitted by Daniel Levy)
