Jewish History

On this day, Ezra the Scribe went up to the Holy Temple and fasted, prayed, and cried in public. While he prayed and confessed, weeping and prostrating himself in front of the Temple, a large assemblage of men, women, and children gathered around him.

At that time, all of the assembled priests and Israelites swore to send away their non-Jewish wives. Ezra then issued a proclamation that all Jews residing in Israel should assemble in three days' time in Jerusalem (see Today in Jewish History for the 20th of Kislev).

Daily Thought

There are no things. There are only words. Not human words, but the divine words of creation telling a story, calling all into being.

The words become scattered and we no longer understand their meaning. They appear to us static and meaningless. As things.

But they are not things. They are words in exile.

If so, their redemption lies in the story we tell with them.

Joy can create one story. Inspiration yet another. Reach to the divine spark within you, and a whole new story emerges.

What story will you tell with the scattered fragments of your life?
