Jewish History

Following the War of Independence, Israel needed to secure its borders against the hostile Arab nations which surrounded it. Ein Gedi, on the western shore of the Dead Sea, was secured on Sunday, March 20, 1949.

War of Independence

Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld played a leading role in the Jewish community of British-Mandatory Jerusalem for almost six decades. He authored the book of responsa Salmas Chaim.

Daily Thought

For a mitzvah is a candle and Torah is light. (Proverbs 6:23)

Every mitzvah shines its particular light into our world. And there will come a time when you will see that light with your eyes.

Except the candles that are lit for Shabbat before sunset. They shine a light you can see right now.

It may seem an ordinary light, just another flame. But there is nothing ordinary about it.

You have ignited the darkness of our world and extracted its secret:

That it too is light.
