Jewish History

Seven months after the beginning of the Great Flood, and 17 days after the waters covering the earth began to subside, the Ark sheltering Noah, his family, and members of all animal species came to rest on the (still submerged) summit of Mount Ararat.

The Hasmonean fighters recaptured Migdal Tzur from the Greek enemy and proclaimed this day a holiday (Talmud, Megilat Taanit).

Daily Thought

Every person needs a mentor. And that mentor needs a mentor. And that mentor as well—you can’t pull yourself up by tugging at your own hair.

Find yourself someone you can rely on for advice and counsel. Someone who understands you and whom you can trust and respect. If that person turns you down, insist and persist.

Don’t wait to be made a student. Be proactive and make someone your teacher.
