Today's verse packs a powerful lesson on prayer and the eternal centrality ofJerusalem. Daniel, who was exiled to Babylonia after the destruction of the First Temple, opens his windows to face his beloved, yet distant, Jerusalem, the place where prayer ascends to Heaven. As the holiday season approaches, we reflect on the people and places that mean the most to us, and offer gifts to mark our thoughts, love and devotion to them. What better way to show your love for Israel than buying gifts from the holy land for those whom you cherish.
The Israeli Antiquities Authority is releasing a free app, called “Dig Quest”, meant to help kids get a feel for what archaeologists do, and experience what it is like to discover artifacts from the past.
Our book of inspiring daily devotionals will help you keep focused each day of the year on what is most important - connecting with the Almighty and the Holy Land. Makes a great holiday gift for your loved ones!
Thank you, Rabbi Tuly, for keeping me up-to-date about Israel and the Jewish people, the "apple of God's eye." I love your wonderful country and know G-d is on your side! Psalm 3 says in part, "I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people that have set themselves against me round about,. Arise, O LORD, save me O my G-d, for Thou hast smitten all my enemies upon the cheekbone; Thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. Salvation belongeth unto the LORD; My blessing is upon My people.".....Love and prayers to you, G-d's chosen people, from a Christian friend of Israel. G.Y.
