Lecture given on a bus in Sarajevo. R Schachter discusses the Chacham Tzvi. Why was he a rabbi in so many different communities? Why did the Ba'al HaTanya feel he was deserving of heaven? Can women use a heated mikveh on shabbos? Can a moat act as a mechitza? Do visitors in Israel keep one or two days Yom Tov? Can a golem be counted to a minyan? Should chasan torah be given only to the rabbi? Why did R Yaakov Emden find it difficult to be matir agunos? Why was R Yaakov Emden zealous regarding Shabtai Tzvi followers? Does Hashem wear tifilin and what is written in them? Does one recite a blessing on the most important food first, or does one go in the order that the food is served? Why does one recite a blessing before performing a mitzva?
