"Woe unto a person who is not aware of his defects, and who does not know what he must correct. But much worse off is the person who does not know his strengths, and who is therefore unaware of the tools he must work with to advance himself spiritually."

I happened upon this article Phillip P. Keene shared on his FB. So really, people, read it well, because this is not about something that’s happened in 1938, it’s happening today in 2014. 

Just like in ‘38, no one says a word. What is wrong with this world? Do we really need to get to the point where people are gassed again before someone thinks this is wrong? Really?

the best feeling in the world is when your teacher says “these essays/papers sucked” and getting yours back with a “nice work!” and a lil smiley bc success is so much sweeter when you know others have failed

Torah Crown
c.1740-1750
Italy

Exceptional for its size and precious material, this Torah crown is a rare survival of 18th-century Italian silver and a testimony to the artistic virtuosity of goldsmithing in Venice. In synagogues the scroll of the Torah, the first five books of the Hebrew Bible, is often decorated with a set of vestments and silver ornaments including a crown or finials, and a shield. The crown augments the Torah’s status as an object associated with royalty and speaks to the centrality of the Torah in Jewish life. The motifs depicted include ritual references such as priestly garments, a miniature temple, a menorah, and the Tablets of the Law, the latter engraved in Hebrew with the Ten Commandments. Such rich embellishment is indicative of the wealth and influential status of the Jewish congregation in the Venetian city state. The maker, Andrea Zambelli, is known to have made a wide range of ritual Judaica as well as religious silver for the local churches. A later inscription in Hebrew documents that this “crown of glory, and diadem of beauty” [Isaiah 28:5], was given by the philanthropist and president of the Jewish community in Padua, Gabriel Trieste, to his congregation in the mid-19th century.

shadowsofwho asked: Once you get this you have to say 5 things you like about yourself, publicly, then send this to ten of your favourite followers :D

Weeeee. :D

1) I’m easily pleased and grateful.

2) I notice beauty absolutely everywhere.

3) I’m stubborn. Obviously this can be both a blessing and a curse, but I wouldn’t want to be any other way.

4) I have a good sense of fashion and can put together pretty outfits from my eclectic, mostly second-hand wardrobe.

5) I’m much better than I used to be at keeping my cool while others lose it.
