Jewish History

Asher, the son of Jacob, was born on the 20th of Shevat of the year 2199 from creation (1562 BCE). According to some accounts, this is also the date of his passing.

Daily Thought

When it came time to give the Torah to the Jewish people, G-d told Moses to speak with the women first.

Because that is the order by which Torah enters the world: First the fundamentals, then the details.

The fundamentals—faith, trust, love, awe, sanctity—these are principally the woman’s domain.

Bringing all that into the details of time and space—this is where men come in useful.
