Israel understands all too well that freedom comes at a cost. However, despite the hardships, Israel draws strength and courage from the fact that God stands with His people. He goes with them wherever they go and He does not forsake them, as promised in this verse. As Operation Protective Edge completes its first week of ground combat, we rally around our brave soldiers, providing for their needs and praying for their continued success and well being.
Jerusalem Diaries: In Tense Times, by Judy Lash Balint, paints a vivid picture of life in modern day Israel. Her provoking descriptions piece together a stirring portrait of a people struggling to maintain normal life in the most abnormal of settings.
Dear Rabbi Tuly, Hello from Down Under - New Zealand. We enjoy reading your emails, thank you for them. With all that is happening in and around Israel we just want to tell you there are people like us who pray for Israel, who believe the Jews are God's Chosen people. We pray that your country's leadership will not give any land away. Blessings, Julia and Gavin Brown, Taupo, New Zealand
