"There He Proclaimed in the Name of the Lord" ✡ Shabbat Shalom

He planted an eshel tree in Be'er Sheva, and there he proclaimed in the Name of the Lord, God of the Universe.

GENESIS (21:33)

וַיִּטַּע אֶשֶׁל בִּבְאֵר שָׁבַע וַיִּקְרָא שָׁם בְּשֵׁם יְ-הוָה אֵל עוֹלָם

בראשית כ’’א:ל’’ג

va-yi-TA e-SHEL bi-BAYR sha-VA va-yik-RA sham b'-SHAYM a-do-NAI ayl o-LAM

Shabbat Inspiration

Today we gain beautiful insight into Abraham's generous ways. The "eshel" was a fruit tree that Abraham planted to serve fruits to his guests. Our Sages go even deeper and say that "eshel" is an acronym for three Hebrew words: eating (אכילה  a-khee-la), drinking (שתיה sh'tee-ya) and escorting (לויה levaya), the three types of hospitality that Abraham was famous for offering to his guests. Be’er Sova, which has been operating for 15 years in the southern city of Be’er Sheva, provides food for people who are in need. For the upcoming High Holidays, Be’er Sova has set their sight on distributing 600 family food packages to the surrounding community.

Jerusalem Gardens & Abraham's Tree

More than 10,000 species of plants can be found at the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens, where guests can wander along a Bible Path and learn about the tree planted by Abraham, and other greenery mentioned in the Bible.

Top Goal: Rosh Hashana Meals for All

One Israeli organization has set out on an ambitious goal to ensure that families can celebrate Rosh Hashana in dignity, and has set its sight on distributing 600 family food packages to the southern community of Be'er Sheva.

Shabbat Shalom Book

Today's Israel Photo

Rebecca Kowalsky's photo of "Abraham's Tent" in Genesis Land, a park situated in the heart of the Judean desert. Visitors experience life as it was in biblical times, and are greeted by Eliezer, Abraham's servant, and by a train of camels which lead them down to Abraham's tent for a taste of his legendary hospitality.
