Jewish History

The 20th of Sivan is the anniversary of the first blood libel in France. On this date in 1171, tens of Jewish men and women were burned alive in the French town of Blois on the infamous accusation that Jews used to the blood of Christian children in the preparation of matzot for Passover. For a detailed account see link below.

Daily Thought

The science of energy allows us to perceive the divine force that sustains the universe. There is a force we call electromagnetism.

It cannot be grasped with any of the five senses—we can know it only from its effects and related phenomena. Indeed, we cannot explain it in any other terms.

Yet it permeates all of our experience, and from it we derive great light and power.

It manifests itself in the pull of a magnet, in the light of the sun, in the waves that carry our network of communication through air and empty space, in the work performed by our machines, and in endless more phenomenon.

Yet it is one.

For its Creator is one.

See Shelach, 5739. Igrot Kodesh, vol. 8, p. 101.
