King David's First Capital City ✡ "They Anointed David as King Over Israel"

All the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron, and King David sealed a covenant with them in Hebron before God, and they anointed David as king over Israel.


וַיָּבֹאוּ כָּל זִקְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶל הַמֶּלֶךְ חֶבְרוֹנָה וַיִּכְרֹת לָהֶם הַמֶּלֶךְ דָּוִד בְּרִית בְּחֶבְרוֹן לִפְנֵי יְ-הוָה וַיִּמְשְׁחוּ אֶת דָּוִד לְמֶלֶךְ עַל יִשְׂרָאֵל

שמואל ב ה:ג

va-ya-vo-U kol zik-NAY yis-ra-EL el ha-me-le-KH khev-ro-NA va-yeekh-ROT la-HEM ha-me-LEKH da-VID b'-REET b'-khev-RON lif-NAY a-do-NAI va-yeem-sh'-KHU et da-VID l'-me-LEKH al yis-ra-EL

Jerusalem Inspiration

When we think about Hebron we most often recall its connection to our Patriarchs and Matriarchs who sojourned there and were buried there.  But, did you know that Hebron was also the site of the initiation of the Davidic Dynasty? Prior to moving the capital to Jerusalem, for seven years King David solidified his reign and ruled from the city of Hebron. Just another reason to support the continued presence of Jews in Hebron by donating to the Hebron Fund.

My Hebron

Enjoy the sites of Hebron in this inspiring video put to the music of the song 'Hebron She-li', 'My Hebron'.

The Joy of Hebron

In the popular food and travel show “Joy of Israel with Jamie Geller,” a family visits the holy city of Hebron for a spiritually uplifting and delicious trip.

Authentic Shofar from Israel

The sound of the shofar is likened to the wailing of man as he turns to God.  Get your own Shofar, made in Israel, a sure way to evoke a connection to God. Comes with a deeply insightful eBook about the Shofar's significance and history.
