Pebbles from heaven

Dear Tzviling,

Thank you for your column. I have a question regarding wealth. I grew up in a home of modest means. I was always taught that wealth can be distractive. And yet, in a recent class I learned about the fabulous wealth that went into the building of the Holy Temple. Wouldn’t G-d be more impressed with simplicity?

Avoiding the wedding ‘plotz’

Dear Tzviling, First, the good news. Mazel Tov! My daughter is engaged to be married. And now, the “bad” news. I’m going meshhuga! [I’m a nervous wreck!] The chasunah [wedding] is taking place next month and I was up a whole night trying to make seating arrangements. Oy, what a mess. I’m ready to plotz! [I feel like I’m going to explode.] Help! Chanchie (Boro Park)

How to meet Elijah the Prophet

Dear Tzviling, I have read many stories of Elijah the Prophet. I was told that great people actually had the privilege to see him. Tell me, how can I have the merit of his presence? Masha, Colorado Springs

Mathematics vs. nachas

Dear Tzviling, My daughter wants to get married and is getting a lot of offers of fine young men. Many friends have told me to make sure to check out the family background. You know, the parents, siblings, uncles and aunts — even cousins. Is this really that important? After all, my daughter won’t be marrying the relatives. We value your opinion. What do you think? Grace (via e-mail)
