Jewish History

The Spanish cabinet approved a bill which granted religious freedom to Spain's Jews as well as other religious minorities. Since 1492 it had been officially forbidden to practice Judaism in Spain -- though this law had not been enforced for many years before its official abolishment.

Daily Thought

The bravest heroes are also the most humble.

G‑d made the hearts of David and his soldiers strong and brave, so they would win in battle against Israel’s enemies.

He made the hearts of Rabbi Eliezer and Rabbi Akiva stubborn, so they could traverse the highway from ignorance to enlightenment in adulthood.

They were all sensitive, humble men, nothing in their own eyes.

But G‑d put a stubborn courage in their hearts—and that they would not surrender.

Maamarei Admor Hazaken Haketzarim, p. 370.
