Jewish History

Sir Moses Montefiore was a religious philanthropist who worked tirelessly on behalf of his brethren worldwide, and especially in the Land of Israel. He dispensed large sums toward charitable causes and founded numerous establishments and institutions. Sir Montefiore traveled far and wide to visit Jewish communities and interceded on their behalf before rulers such as Queen Victoria, Czar Alexander the Second, the Ottoman Sultan, and the pope. He lived to the ripe old age of 100, passing away on 16 Menachem Av 5645 (1885).

Daily Thought

Not only is there is no conflict between your work and your time for study, meditation and prayer—on the contrary, they complement one another:

When you start your day by connecting it to Torah, the day shines and all its parts work in synchronicity.

And when you work honestly, carrying the morning’s inspiration in your heart, your work itself rolls out the Torah before your open eyes.
