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

Anxieties, worries, feelings of inadequacy and failure—all these smother and cripple the soul from doing its job.

You need to find the appropriate time to deal with them. But don’t carry them around the whole day.

During the day, you are Adam and Eve before they tasted the fruit of good and evil.
