Jewish History

Rabbi Alexander Sender Schorr was a direct descendant of Rabbi Yosef Bechor Schorr of Orleans, one of the most famous of the French Tosafists. At a young age he was already appointed Chief Justice of the Rabbinic Court in the town of Hovniv which is directly outside of Lvov, Poland.

He authored the classic work on the laws of ritual slaughter called Simlah Chadashah, as well as a deeper commentary on those laws called Tevu'ot Shor.

The Simlah Chadashah has been reprinted more than one hundred times, and is the most widely used book to learn the laws of shechitah (ritual slaughter). Rabbi Alexander Sender Schorr passed away in the town of Zelkava on the 27th of Shevat in the year 5497 (1737).

Daily Thought

There is an outer world and there is an inner world. As deep as you penetrate, as high as you reach, there is always something breathing inside.

The outer world is made of things. Breathing inside the things are words.

Words are the outside. Inside the words are stories.

The story is the outside. Inside the story is a thought.

Thoughts are the outside. Inside the thoughts is a great light.

At the origin of all light is the beginning that cannot be known.

The outside we can touch and come to know.
The inside—we must wait and be still, so that it may speak to us.

As it did at Sinai. As it does whenever we learn Torah with all our heart and soul.
