How to stop a plague
This is not a story about biblical history. It’s a story about us, today, right now.
Nearly 3000 years ago, toward the end of King David’s reign over the kingdom Israel, a mysterious plague began striking down victims in vast numbers. The sages record that David responded with a decree that every person in the land should recite 100 blessings a day and, miraculously, the plague stopped.
What is a blessing? The answer contains the solution to the problems that plague us.
