Questions received from around the country and Israel included: Are there halachic issues with cruise ship departures on Erev Shabbat, How does a Shabbat observant Jew run an internet business? Can “implants” of genes from non kosher species render food forbidden? What is Tznius? Do weddings cost too much? Can I invite an intermarried relative for a Shabbat meal?
