Jewish History

Chassidic Rabbi Yitzchak Meir Altar (1799-1866), author of Chiddushei Harim (a commentary on the Talmud and Shulchan Aruch), was a disciple of the Maggid of Koshnitz and Rabbi Simcha Bunim of Peshischa, and the founder of the "Ger" (Gerer) Chassidic dynasty. All his 13 sons had died in his lifetime, and he was succeeded (in 1870) by his young grandson, Rabbi Yehudah Leib Alter (the "Sefat Emmet").

Daily Thought

Learn to be happy and you will find reasons to celebrate.

Approach a mountain with joy and you will climb over it.

You will break down every wall, you will melt every stone heart.

Happiness is not an outcome; it is a strategy for life.
