Jewish History

In 1774, the Spanish General O'Reilly attacked the city of Algiers and was successfully repulsed by the Dey of Algiers, Mohammed ibn Uman. Tradition has it that flames came out of the graves of the great Rabbis Isaac ben Sheshet and Solomon ben Simon Duran and contributed to the Spanish defeat. To celebrate the miracle of having escaped Spanish rule, the Jews of Algiers instituted a "Purim" on the 11th of Tammuz.

Daily Thought

This is how that darkness within us finds its way out: First it agrees with everything good we do.

When we choose to meditate, it tells us,
“Yes! Meditate! That way you will become a great sage!”

When we choose to do a good deed, it says,
“Yes! You are so wonderful! Think what others will do in return for this!”

Slowly, slowly, it convinces us that any good we do requires its approval. And then, you’ve fallen into its trap.

Do good without reason. Then there are no traps.
