Jewish History

On July 15, 1834, the Office of the Spanish Inquisition was abolished by the Queen Mother Maria Christina, after nearly three and a half centuries. However, the right of public worship (including permission to mark places of worship and advertise religious services) was not granted to the Jews until 1967.

The Inquisition

Having become a virtual vassal of Spain, the Republic of Genoa expelled the Jews at the behest of their Spanish overlords.

Daily Thought

Self-sacrifice doesn’t mean jumping off a bridge.
Self-sacrifice means surrendering the self.

It means that instead of saying, “I need…”
you ask, “Where and for what am I needed?”

Wherever a sincere, good deed is done, that self-sacrifice breathes within it.

Without it, nothing really changes. With it, everything changes.
