Jewish History

R. David ibn Zimra, known by the acronym Radvaz, was a great rabbi and scholar who led the Jewish communities of Egypt and Safed for sixty years. Radvaz was held in high esteem by his contemporaries, and is the author of 3000 responsa, covering a vast array of topics. Among his more famous students are R. Isaac Luria (the Ari) and R. Betzalel Ashkenazi (author of Shitah Mekubetzes). It is said that Elijah the Prophet revealed himself to him.

Daily Thought

“And Abraham was aged, come of days.” (Genesis 24:1)

Abraham, we are told, was not just aged, but “come of days.” Meaning, he entered into his days.

Within each moment of life, whatever it was he needed to do, he invested his entire being.

And so he owned every day of his life. His life was his.
