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

Self-sacrifice doesn’t mean jumping off a bridge.
Self-sacrifice means surrendering the self.

It means that instead of saying, “I need…”
you ask, “Where and for what am I needed?”

Wherever a sincere, good deed is done, that self-sacrifice breathes within it.

Without it, nothing really changes. With it, everything changes.
