Jewish History

R Yomtov Algazi was the chief rabbi of Jerusalem from 1773 until his death. During a journey to Europe to raise money for the Jewish community in Israel, he discovered a manuscript of a work of Nachmanides: a compilation of the laws of the firstborn and the separation of challah, styled after R. Yitzchak Alfasi’s codex of Jewish law. R. Yomtov undertook to publish the manuscript, accompanied by a lengthy commentary he authored, which brought him worldwide fame as a brilliant Torah scholar.

Daily Thought

Souls wait up in heaven for thousands of years, longing for their moment upon this earth to do another soul a favor.

Angels burn with jealousy each time a human being turns himself around and creates beauty in this world.

Heaven is nice, but on the best things, earth has exclusive rights.
