Feeling The Suffering Of Others

Rabbi Chaim Shmuelevitz the late head of Mirrer Yeshiva in Jerusalem said,
 "While we have to work on overcoming the feeling of suffering in our personal lives
, at the same time we should work on trying to feel the suffering of others."

 When Rabbi Shmuelevitz was in the hospital shortly before his death, another patient was put in the same room.
 Rabbi Shmuelevitz, who was very weak himself, wrote down with a shaky hand,

 "When I suffer, it is easier to feel the suffering of others.




Moving map of the country (American history)

A MUST SEE, EVEN IF JUST THE MAP PART. TONS OF OTHER STUFF YOU CAN CLICK ON!!! Best history lesson you've had in a long time - maybe the best ever! Save and enjoy all year! You can click on each state for more about them. This moving map of the country shows it from the beginning of the 13 states and going through the present. It includes the acquisitions from England and Spain, the Slave states, the Free states, a segment on the Civil war, it  includes some mentions of Central and South America, etc. One of the things I especially liked was showing the Indian Nations as they were during the Indian Wars: Modac, Miwok, Mujave, Nez Perce, Flat Head, Crow, Cheyenne, Arapaho, Navajo, Apache, Dakota, Sioux, Kiowa, Wichita and Comanche. I know you'll enjoy this site, especially if you enjoy American history, but have forgotten a lot of what was learned in school. Turn on your sound, as the narration is a significant portion of the presentation. Send this to teachers that you know and older children who would like to watch it. You can click on each state for more about them.

When you open it, click on play at the top.
