Jewish History

The 20th of Sivan is the anniversary of the first blood libel in France. On this date in 1171, tens of Jewish men and women were burned alive in the French town of Blois on the infamous accusation that Jews used to the blood of Christian children in the preparation of matzot for Passover.

Daily Thought

When the spies that Moses sent returned from their reconnaissance of the Land of Canaan, they included in their report these words:

“We felt like ants before them,
and so we were in their eyes.”

Because they felt like ants in their own eyes,
therefore, others saw them as ants as well.
