Jewish History

Chovat 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

Tolerance doesn’t care. Tolerance just looks the other way and goes about its own business. Tolerance is Indifferent.

Caring is blind—the kind of caring that cares for everybody, no matter who they are, but doesn’t allow them to step outside the path your caring believes to be good for them. Caring can suffocate.

And then there is deep love. Deep love recognizes another person’s right to grow, their need to travel along a path and get there on their own—and yet has the compassion to be there for them when they are lost.

Deep love has room for a thousand private journeys.
