Jewish History

R. Mordechai ben Hillel was a prominent scholar who lived in Nuremberg, Germany. He authored a famous halachic compendium known as Mordechai, included in all standard printings of the Talmud. R. Mordechai, his wife, and five children were killed in the notorious Rindfleisch massacres (see entry for 7 Iyar), on 22 Menachem Av, 5058 (1298).

Daily Thought

A king without a queen, the Zohar says, is neither great nor a king. For it is the woman who empowers the man to conquer.

And it is the man who empowers the woman to nurture.

And then the man will learn from this woman that he, too, can reach within others and provide nurture.

And the woman will learn that through nurture, she can conquer.

Shabbat Noach, 5751.
