Daniel talks about the Yahrzeit of Rabbi Chayim ben Attar - the Ohr ha-Chayim ha-Kadosh.  It's been 269 years since the death of this great mystic, miracle-worker, saint, and scholar.

Also, Uri Blau, a journalist with the far-left Israeli newspaper Haaretz, was convicted of possession of thousands of classified military documents. Journalists are also accused of spying and harrassing  public figures, musicians and other celebrities. Some of the information they plaster on pages ruin people's lives. Should journalists tell all, even if it is true?

Daniel Pinner is a veteran immigrant from England, a teacher and a Torah scholar who has been active in causes promoting Eretz Israel and Torat Israel.
