Jewish History

Jacob Frank claimed to be the reincarnation of the false Messiah Shabbetai Zvi. In the mid-1700’s, he sought to create a new religion that would incorporate both Judaism and Christianity, leading to the formation of the Frankist sect, centered in Poland. Many rabbis of the time, including the Baal Shem Tov, battled the new sect and its leader vigorously and successfully halted their influence.

Daily Thought

When things don’t work out, relax. Even if it’s all your fault and you deserve everything you’re getting, trust in G‑d that it is all for the good, and stay calm.

When He sees how much you trust in Him,
He will make it be all for the good.

Is that fair?

Yes. Because trust in G-d transforms you into an entirely different person, no longer the person who deserved the past.

Trust in G-d enables you to receive all good things.

Likutei Sichot v. 36, Shemot 1.
