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

Matter and energy are two opposites. To energize a piece of matter requires a constant flow.

Existence and nothingness are two opposites. To keep the world in existence demands a constant renewal.

Heaven and earth are two opposites. To infuse the earthly with spirituality requires a constant effort.

Woman and man are two opposites. And so courtship never ends.

Likkutei Sichot, vol. 5, page 174.
