Jewish History

Kislev 5 is the yahrtzeit (date of the passing) of Rabbi Shemuel Eliezer Eidel's (1555-1631), known by the acronym "Maharsha". Rabbi Shmuel authored a highly regarded and widely used commentary on the Talmud and its primary commentaries, Rashi and Tosfot.

Daily Thought

All of Jewish philosophy is but an attempt to fit inside the human mind that which is contained within the heart of a simple Jew.

It will never fit.

But perhaps the mind, once aware of its inadequacy, will awaken the heart from its slumber.
