Jewish History

On Adar 24, Czar Alexander I of Russia declared the Blood Libel -- the infamous accusation that Jews murdered Christian children to use their blood in the baking of matzah for Passover, for which thousands of Jews were massacred through the centuries -- to be false. Nevertheless, nearly a hundred years later the accusation was officially leveled against Mendel Beilis in Kiev.

Daily Thought

There is no place for worry.

Decide the best course of action, according to your knowledge.
If you do not have the experience to decide,
ask the advice of someone who does
—a parent, a teacher, an expert—someone reliable,
but also someone conscientious of your values and priorities.

Once you have decided what should be done, follow that course,
confident that since you are doing what you believe in,
the Master of All Things will support your decision.
