Memorial Day of the Mishnaic sage and leading student of Hillel the Great, Rabbi Yonathan ben Uziel. Known for his famous Targum ["Translation"] of The Prophets, it is said [Talmud, Megillah 3a] that he also planned to author a translation-commentary on The Writings, but was prevented by Heaven so that he would not reveal the secrets of the final redemption. His burial place in Amuka, near Safed, is one of the main Jewish pilgrimage sites in Israel, in particular for those seeking Heavenly assistance in finding their true soul-mate.
