Jewish History

Kislev 5 is the yahrtzeit (date of the passing) of Rabbi Shmuel Eliezer Eidels (1555-1631), known by the acronym "Maharsha". Rabbi Shmuel authored a highly regarded and widely used commentary on the Talmud and its primary commentaries, Rashi and Tosfot.

Daily Thought

Our sages taught, “G-d only tells us to do that which He does Himself.”

He tells us to open the door on the nights of Passover. It must be that He does the same.

On the nights of Passover, the One Above opens every door and every gateway for every single Jew.

Regardless of whatever you have done over the past year, on these two nights you can attain the highest levels in a single leap.

Second night of Passover, 5711, printed in Likutei Sichot vol. 4, pg 1298.
