Today in Jewish History

• Portuguese Expulsion (1496)

Just four years after the expulsion of the Jews from Spain -- many of whom found refuge in the neighboring country of Portugal -- a decree was issued giving all the Jews living in Portugal one year to either convert to Christianity or leave the country. Over the next 350 years, the infamous Inquisition persecuted, tortured and burned at the stake thousands of "marranos" throughout Spain, Portugal and their colonies for continuing to secretly practice the Jewish faith.

• Prague rescue (1622)

In the yearbook of the Meisel Synagogue in Prague, the 22nd of Tevet is designated to commemorate the escape of Yosef Thein from the gallows in the year 5383 from creation (1622).

Daily Quote

The study of Zohar exalts the soul; study of Midrash arouses the heart; Psalms with tears scours the vessel [of the soul - i.e., the body.]

- Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Lubavitch (1789-1866)
