Today in Jewish History

 

  • Purim Saragossa (1421)

A noxious plot was brewing against the Jewish community of Saragossa, but they were completely unaware of the looming danger. They were spared, however, thanks to a handful of synagogues beadles who acted on a dream they all had. The resulting salvation on the 17th of Shevat was celebrated by Saragossan Jews, and dubbed "Purim Saragossa."

A Hebrew Megillah (scroll) was penned, describing the details of the miraculous story. To this day, this scroll is read in certain communities on Purim Saragossa.

Daily Quote

The times that most profoundly affects the course of a person's soul are the times he struggles with and battling his persecutors and oppressors to uphold and strengthen his faith... Such an experience, though fraught with pain of the body and agony of the soul, is rich with powerful impressions. These are the days of light in the life of man

Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch (1880-1950), writing about his imprisonment by the Soviets in 1927
