Jewish History

R. Naftali Tzvi Yehuda Berlin (known by his acronym, the Netziv) led the famed Volozhin yeshiva for almost forty years. He authored numerous works, including Ha’amek Davar, Ha’amek She’eilah, Meromei Sadeh, and a collection of halachic responsa titled Meishiv Davar.

Study a thought from the Netziv: Justice or Peace

Daily Thought

First there was One. There was no peace, because there was nothing with which to make peace. There was only One.

Then there was Two. There was diversity. From this point on, an infinite cacophony of conflict extended in all directions and forever.

And on the third day G‑d created peace.

Peace is not homogeneity. Peace does not mean that everyone thinks the same way. Peace is when there is diversity that finds a higher Oneness.
