Jewish History
Rabbi Eliezer ben Eliyahu Ashkenazi (1512-1585) was a highly regarded Talmudist, as well as a physician. He authored various works, including Ma'ase ha-Shem -- a commentary on the historical portions of the Pentateuch, also including a commentary on the Passover Hagaddah -- and Yosef Lekach, dedicated and named after Don Yosef Nasi, the Duke of Naxos.

Daily Thought

You are G‑d’s sewing needle.

Your mitzvahs are His thread. Now you can understand all these journeys of your life: You are pulling a thread, stitching together the confusion of this world into a single, meaningful story of wisdom and divine truth.

Out of chaos, a beautiful patchwork of many colors.

As a needle, you must be firm and sharp to pierce through this world.

And as a needle, you must also have an opposite side: An opening, a nothingness, an empty place to hold a long divine thread.

Be as a sewing needle. Be tough. Be humble. You are stitching together a beautiful world.

Reshimot 5.
