Jewish History

Passing of the famed Torah scholar and mystic Rabbi Chayim ben Attar (1696-1743), author of the Ohr HaChayim commentary on the Torah. Born in Morocco, he also lived and taught in Algiers, Italy, Acco and Jerusalem, where he settled a year before his passing. Many stories are told of his holiness and greatness, and of the repeated unsuccessful attempts by Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov to reach the Holy Land and meet with him in the belief that together they could bring the Moshiach and the final redemption.

Daily Thought

Remember you are not the body. Neither are you the animal that pounds within the body, demanding its way in every thing. You are a G‑dly soul.

Do not confuse the pain and struggle of the body with the joy and purity of the G‑dly soul.
