Jewish History

The 19th of Tevet is the yahrtzeit (anniversary of the passing) of American Jewish philanthropist Judah Touro (1775-1854).

R. Aryeh Leib Heller was the rabbi of the city of Stryi, in what is now Western Ukraine. His works—Ketzot Hachoshen, Avnei Milu’im, and Shav Shemateta—are known for their clear, logical analysis of Talmudic texts and ideas, and are staples that are studied in yeshivas throughout the world.

Daily Thought

Everything that occurs comes from Him, and He is only good.

But if you and your world are not open to receiving such good from beyond, it may manifest itself as apparent bad—much as heavy rains upon untilled soil bring floods in the place of abundant produce.

How do you soften the soil and open yourself to divine goodness?

By opening your heart and opening your eyes to see the love and the beauty that surrounds you
—and then the good will sprout forth from the very earth where it was concealed.
