Jewish History

Chovot Halevavot, the classical work on Jewish ethics, was authored by Rabbi Bachya ben Yosef ibn Paquda (the first "Rabbeinu Bechayei") on or before 1161, and translated into Hebrew from the original Arabic by the famed translator R. Judah ibn Tibbon in 1167. It was first published on the 25th of Tevet of the year 5319 from creation (1559).

Daily Thought

The holy Zohar tells of a time when we will all study its secret wisdom and truly digest its meaning. It will nurture us and give us life. The final liberation will then come with gentle compassion rather than with harsh judgment.

Now the wisdom is no longer secret. The Baal Shem Tov, the Great Magid, the Alter Rebbe, and others have made it accessible and meaningful to all.

Learn it, teach it, live from it. You will bring divine compassion and spiritual freedom to the world.
