Lesson from history
I am currently in Israel and had a chance the other day to visit a museum that dealt with the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD, during the Roman Era. Posted on the wall was this plaque with a quote from the Babylonian Talmud. I was struck by its relevance today to so many situations, whether in Israel or elsewhere in the world.
