Hillel HaZakein

KidzMidrash Stories

In the chronicles of Jewish history, few men have shown as magnificent a soul as the great Hillel. For in order for a leader to qualify for greatness, he must be more than merely a great scholar — although that is, of course, the most necessary attribute. He must also possess depth of character and the sweetness and gentleness of soul that will enable him to under stand the needs and sufferings of his people. Without this sensitivity, he can never truly be a great leader.

The Beginning Of Anti-Semitism

Posted on: March 15th, 2013

KidzMidrash Stories

The story of Bnei Yisrael in the land of Mitzrayim is a tale that has become tragically repetitive in the history of our people.
