Thank you, feels a bit strange not to be able to trust ones family, and very hard in practice. I mean what you are saying is applicable to other prohibitions too. I was reading about Ramban, and the prohibition of selling knifes to goyim. In that way I could not trust my wife with a knife. Although, I see your point.

@Ari A, Yes I have been thinking about an interlinear Siddur. However, I find that if I use a dictionary I learn quicker as I have to work with the text a lot harder. The down point is of cause inflectional morphemes are hard some times, and can change the meaning drastically. Thanks.

I should probably open a new question for the previous comment.

Interesting. I have heard different opinions regarding converts and mitzvos. Some say that it is no benefit or verse for the convert. Other say it is bad for the convert and yet other say that one should keep them but break a few to show that the convert is not Jewish just yet. I know this is a different thing ; Abraham, Isaac and Jakob kept the mitzvos but was not obligated to do so. Did they do it with out gaining merit?

I'm in Australia my Rebbe is i Israel. I wish I could afford going there soon. However, I have contact with an Orthodox Rabbi in Adelaide. I might be able to ask him if I get the opportunity to meet him soon. Thanks!

Excellent! Thank you so much. I have been looking every where, but as you said information overload is problematic.
