Jewish History

Sixty-seven 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 killings began on Friday afternoon, 17 Av, and most of the victims lost their lives on Shabbat, 18 Av. The survivors were forced to evacuate 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

Every business is the business of a tailor: to make clothes for the blessings that come your way.

You can’t alter the size of your blessings by putting them in bigger clothes—on the contrary, larger clothes are just clumsier clothes.

But neither must the clothes be too small—meaning, you must go out and work in the real world.

Because that is the whole purpose: that miracles and blessings should not come into the world stark naked, but be clothed in the natural world. And we are the tailors.
