Jewish History

After 334 years, the 2nd Holy Temple in Jerusalem (see "Today in Jewish History" for Adar 3) was in disrepair. In the year 19 BCE, King Herod I floated the idea of rebuilding and renovating the Temple. Though many Jews were wary of Herod’s motives, the renovation was completed eight years later. The new structure was magnificent, causing the Talmud to state: "He who has not seen Herod's edifice has not seen a magnificent edifice!"

Daily Thought

We are all prisoners. But we sit on the keys.

Finitude is our cell.
The universe is our prison.
Our jailkeeper is the act of being.

The keys to our freedom are clenched tightly in the fists of our own egos.
