The Talmud describes that all people are descended from a single person, thus saving a single life is as meritorious as saving an entire world. Few merit to fulfill this belief and save lives (entire worlds!) over and over again. The incredible ZAKA rescue organization, whose volunteers are easily identifiable by their bright yellow vests, are often the first rescue workers to appear at the scene of a terrorist bombing or shooting -- and the last to leave. After rescuing and treating the living, ZAKA is well-known for its sacred work of caring for the dead and collecting human remains to ensure a proper Jewish burial.
Dedicated ZAKA volunteers are aware of the gruesome tasks they might face and must have a certain strength of mind to overcome the horrible images they will be exposed to at the scene of a terror attack.
This marvelous Kiddush cup is made of sterling silver and is set on a smooth spreading foot, leading to the body which is decorated with the scenery of the Holy City – Jerusalem.

Marked 925 for sterling silver.
Flags proudly wave at Jaffa Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem. The Old City's eight gates and walls were built in the early 16th c. by the Turkish Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. A popular entrance en route to the Western Wall, Jaffa Gate is so named because at one time, pilgrims arrived through this gate from Jaffa Port.
Did you guess the Bahai Gardens in Haifa? You got it! The democratic State of Israel is the ONLY country in the Mideast where a Bahai Temple is allowed. Just one more reason that we're proud to support Israel.

Hi Just want to say Hello from the UK. New to this subscription but hoping to learn so much. I am almost 60 years old but when I was about 8 years old I remember seeing something on TV (black and white), it was to do with the Holocaust ... I am a Christian but have always since that time had a soft spot for Israel and its people. May your land prosper and be in peace and Blessings from me to You and Yours. Steve Beevers
