Jewish History

Klonimus Wolf Wissotzky, the son of poor parents, established The Wissotzky Tea company in 1849 and became known as the "King of Russian Tea." He was a great Jewish philanthropist and called for the settlement of Jews in Israel, which initiated the move of Jews to Lod, Nablus and Gaza. In his will he left over a million rubles to charity.

In 1936, Wissotzky Tea became the very first tea company in Palestine and has since been the leading tea company in Israel.

Daily Thought

Does G‑d need you?
No. He desires you.

If He would need you, you would be no more than a utility, a means to an end.
Rather, G‑d desires you—not that which you provide, not that which you fulfill. Just you.

With unbridled, undiluted, pure desire, He awaits you to come close to Him.
