Jewish History

On July 15, 1834, the Office of the Spanish Inquisition was abolished by the Queen Mother Maria Christina, after nearly three and a half centuries. However, the right of public worship (including permission to mark places of worship and advertise religious services) was not granted to the Jews until 1967.

The Inquisition

Having become a virtual vassal of Spain, the Republic of Genoa expelled the Jews at the behest of their Spanish overlords.

Daily Thought

Fixing up the world is always an inside job.

What do we fix? That which we need.

When do we fix anything? When we are in need.

Why do we fix anything? Because our destiny is tied to the destiny of that which we repair and improve.

So it is with the food we eat, the bodies in which we live, the business in which we work, and the community in which we live. Nobody can come from the outside, stay outside, and make real, lasting, beneficial change.
