Jewish History

Shevat 14 is the anniversary of the passing of Rabbi Yaakov Yehoshua Falk Katz (1680-1755), author of the Talmudic work "Penei Yehoshua." He served as rabbi of Lemberg (Lvov) in 1718, Berlin in 1730, Metz in 1734 and Frankfurt in 1740.

Daily Thought

We do not keep our traditions for the sake of the past. We keep them for their power to create a future, a power that will never end.

For the Torah was not given to this world so that it should return to its pristine glory as it was created. The Torah was given for this world to transcend itself.

Likkutei Sichot, vol. 10, p. 162; Massei 5741:18.
