Jewish History

On Adar 24, Czar Alexander I of Russia declared the Blood Libel -- the infamous accusation that Jews murdered Christian children to use their blood in the baking of matzah for Passover, for which thousands of Jews were massacred through the centuries -- to be false. Nevertheless, nearly a hundred years later the accusation was officially leveled against Mendel Beilis in Kiev.

Daily Thought

Sincerity is not enough. You have to do the right thing.

You might be truly sincere about your generosity and your mitzvahs, but if it doesn’t reach the right place, or was not done the right way, it still did not succeed.

Why is it this way? Why can't we be judged by our intentions alone?

So that we will know that we are small, and Truth is very large. It is Truth that stands at the center, and we that orbit about it.

Tanya, chapter 38. Likutei Sichot vol. 15, pg. 247. Maamar V’Shavti B’Shalom 5738.
