Protective Torah


"There was a family in Yerushalayim whose members would die at the age of 18. They informed Rabban Yochanan ben Zakkai of their problem, and he said: Perhaps you are from the house of Eli, regarding whom it is written, 'And all who grow from your house will die as young men. (Shemuel I 2:33)' Go involve yourselves in Torah, and live!

"They involved themselves in Torah and survived, and they became known as 'The Family of Rabbi Yochanan' in his name.

(Talmud, Rosh haShanah 18a)

Have a great day,
