In King David’s beautiful words, God looks down from His heavenly abode to find a ‘reflective person’ amongst mankind. The Lord is looking for those who challenge the conventional wisdom and defend what is right, even if it is unpopular. A truly ‘reflective person’ is one who supports Israel when she is attacked, defends her against discrimination and studies the facts to know how to respond to unwarranted criticism leveled against the Jewish State. The city of Hebron was the crucial location in which the Patriarchs sojourned during their revolutionary start of monotheism and formation of the Jewish Nation; it is also a highly contested and controversial city that receives undue attention and criticism from the media and protesters of Israeli sovereignty. The Hebron Fund supports those who live in the city of our forefathers, enabling the Jewish presence there to continue.
Today's photo features a tranquil Jerusalem at the start of evening; an optimal time for reflection! The Holiday of Hanukkah starts tonight. Do you know when the optimal time to kindle the Hanukkah lights is? Send me your answer or post it on Facebook.
