The Question I heard somewhere that the Chofetz Chaim was left handed, and when he was 93, he taught himself to be right handed, because he was a Cohein, and being left handed is considered a moom, and in order to serve in the Beis Hamikdash, he needed to be without a moom. Is this story true, and if so, why is being a leftie considered a moom? Thank you very much, and tizke limitzvos! Naftali Tzvi Krochmal

The Question The Talmud often refers to a type of person called an Am HaAretz, or ignoramus.

The Question I am the mother of boys who are beginning yeshiva. I read with interest the question about homosexuals. I have heard that homosexuality is quite prevelant in yeshivas and have heard horror stories of bad things happening between talmidim, and even between rabbeim and talmidim. I am very concerned that my boys should not be drawn into this unfortunate way of life. Does the rabbi have any suggestions?
