Jewish History

67 Jewish men, women and children were slaughtered, and scores wounded, raped and maimed, by their Arab neighbors in the city of Hebron, who rioted for three days amid cries of "Slaughter the Jews." The survivors fled to Jerusalem, and the ancient Jewish community of Hebron, which had lived in relative peace in the city for hundreds of years, was not revived until after Israel's capture of Hebron in the 1967 Six Day war.

Daily Thought

What can we learn from the cycle of the moon, how she ever waxes and wanes and waxes again?

That a time of smallness is a time to become great;
And a time of greatness is a time to become small.

For in smallness lies the power to receive
and in receiving lies the power to become great.

And greatness endures only through its power to be small.
