Jewish History

R. Avraham was a famous kabbalist who resided in Hebron, Jerusalem, and Gaza. He authored Chesed L’Avraham, and was the great-grandfather of R. Chaim Yosef David Azulai (the Chida).

R. Avraham’s signature had the appearance of a ship, to commemorate the time when the ship he was traveling on capsized along with all his possessions, and he was miraculously saved (Shem Hagedolim).

Daily Thought

There are times to bend like a reed in the wind.
And there are times to act as a stubborn wall against the tide.

There are things that lie at the periphery of life. Then every “I hold like this” and “my opinion is . . .” stands in the way of harmony and peace. Every such “I” is the very root and source of evil.

But when it comes to matters that touch the purpose for which you were placed in this world, that’s when you have to be that immovable wall. That’s when you have to say, “On this, I‘m not going to budge.”

That “I,” that’s not evil. That‘s an “I” fulfilling the purpose for which you were given an “I.”
