Jewish History

Rabbi Yaakov ben Meir Tam, known as the "Rabbenu Tam," was one of Rashi's illustrious grandsons. During the Second Crusade, on the second day of the holiday of Shavuot, the Crusaders entered his hometown of Rameru, and pillaged and massacred many Jews.

They broke into Rabbenu Tam's house, plundered all his wealth, and seriously wounded Rabbenu Tam. On the next day, the 8th of Sivan, Rabbenu Tam escaped Rameru and the clutches of the Crusaders.

Two years later he completed his famous treatise on Jewish ritual and ethics, Sefer Hayashar.

Laws and Customs

The day following a festival is called Isru Chag ("tied to the festival"). Tachnun (confession of sins) and similar prayers are omitted through the 12th of Sivan.

On Isru Chag, It is customary to hold a kinus Torah, a public gathering in which Torah thoughts are shared and discussed.

Daily Thought

What is an alef?
A point above, a point below, and a line between.

Whatever we may understand of Him
is but an infinitesimal point above.

The only way we can join with Him
is as an infinitesmal point below.

And what empowers us to become this zero-point below
that resonates with the infinite-point above?

Our awe of Him,
a line that connects below to above.

Hayom Yom, 8 Adar I; 10 Shevat 5716.
