Jewish History

Armies of the Tribes of Israel converged upon the tribe of Benjamin in the aftermath of the "Concubine at Givah" incident, in a war which nearly brought about the extinction of the Benjaminites (as related in the Book of Judges, chapters 19-2). The event occurred during the judgeship of Othniel ben Knaz, who led the people of Israel in the years 2533-2573 from creation (1228-1188 BCE).

Daily Thought

A young man came to the Rebbe to receive his blessing. The Rebbe looked at him and said, "A Jew must be happy!"

The young man replied, "Rebbe, what is there to be happy about?"

The Rebbe answered, "Be happy that you were privileged to wrap tefillin this morning!"

The young man mumbled a few words that made the situation quite obvious.

The Rebbe responded, "Be happy that you have a G‑d who waits every minute for the moment you will return to Him and wrap tefillin!"
