Jewish History

R. Yitzchak was a great-grandson of R. Shlomo Yitzchaki, the seminal Biblical and Talmudic commentator commonly known as Rashi. R. Yitzchak and his three uncles—R. Shmuel (Rashbam), R. Yaakov (Rabbeinu Tam), and R. Yitzchak (Rivam)—are among the earliest and most well-known Tosafists. Their comments and explanations, which appear on the outer margin of all classical prints of the Talmud, are vital to any serious student who wishes to properly understand the Talmud.

Daily Thought

It’s easy to fix situations. It’s hard to have a lasting effect.

Easy fixes simply stir the mud, shifting the circumstances so that one problem recedes and another surfaces.

But if you want to make a real change in the world, it has to start from within your own self. Because that’s the only place where you can make a true change.

It’s only once you’ve made that change within yourself that you can bring about change outside of yourself—and be confident that it is real change.
