The Book of Genesis describes the inner meaning of the names of each of Jacob's twelve sons. Did you know that all of the sons were named by their mothers, except for Benjamin? Rachel, who died in childbirth, called her son, "Ben-oni" meaning "son of my mourning." But Jacob wanted his son's name to reflect a positive life-calling, and so called him "Benjamin" which means "son of my right side," connoting strength and support. Learn the meaning of your Hebrew name, a hint into your life-calling.
Welcome to new photographers, Grace & Rick Knelsen! A chance meeting in Jerusalem during Rabbi Tuly's tour led us to the Knelsen's stunning photography. You'll feel you are right here, walking the Land, as you view their photo gallery. Today's photo of grazing cows was taken from Mount Carmel.
