The Hebrew name for Joseph is Yosef, meaning “he will add,” alluding to his mother Rachel’s desire to be blessed with more children. A deeper meaning relates to Joseph receiving some of the most abundant material blessings in all of the Torah. His ancestral land includes the green fertile Jezreel Valley in northern Israel. Zion Oil has begun exploration in the “deep that lies below” Joseph’s land, searching for valuable oil that may be uncovered in his blessed soil. Dig deeper into Zion Oil’s “Joseph Project” with their fascinating free books.
The Obama administration has for the first time refused to reissue its contract with Israel guaranteeing them an oil supply in a time of conflict, leaving Israel more in need of its own oil supply than ever before.

The Jezreel Valley by Ilan Rosen. For thousands of years, this area was only known for its rich Biblical history. When the Zionist pioneers found it a century ago, it was a malaria infested swampland, yet through their love and labor, this fertile area became rich and productive farmland.
Israel365 has been such an eye opener to the rich history of this nation. The bible verses have led me to many sites to explore of the truth of God. Thank you so much. Maseru Lesotho
I live in London, United Kingdom, but having been visiting Israel from 1966, I have driven over its different borders, and love this superb country and its people, hence my return on a regular basis. Love the open spaces in particular, and the desert all the way to the Dead Sea & Eilat. Its special beauty, silence & special wild life as well as its botany... love it... So appreciate the photos which immediately transport me there in an instant... Keep them coming. Ayee MdC
