Daily Torah Thought - 2/22


"There are three creatures of particular chutzpah - the dog among the animals, the rooster among the birds, and the Jew among the nations.

"Rabbi Yitzchak bar Redifa said, citing Rabbi Ami: You may think this is derogatory, but it is actually praise for them - we will either live as Jews, or be killed."

(Midrash, Shmot Rabbah 42:9)

Have a great day,
