Jewish History

The governor of Majorca issued an edict for the protection of the Jewish inhabitants, providing that any citizen who injures a Jew would be hanged.

The advantageous position of the islands, as well as their newly found protection, attracted many Jews from Provence, Sicily, Tunis, and Algiers, amongst other African cities. The Jews even had their own organizations and representatives by sanction of the King.

Laws and Customs

Chabad-Lubavitch Chassidim observe the special customs of the Shabbat prior to the yahrtzeit (anniversary of the passing) of the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn (1880-1950), which occurs next week, on the 10th of Shevat.

Daily Thought

This is all that life is about, why you are here, and why you were created:

To experience every detail of life as a personal affair between you and the Creator of all worlds,

to believe that every step you take is guided by His loving hand,

and to know that you lack nothing, because He is good.
