"He Saddled His Donkey" ✡ Donations Matched for a New Ambulance to Save Lives - ISRAEL365

And Abraham arose early in the morning, and he saddled his donkey … and went to the place of which God had told him.

GENESIS (22:3)

וַיַּשְׁכֵּם אַבְרָהָם בַּבֹּקֶר וַיַּחֲבשׁ אֶת חֲמֹרוֹ... וַיֵּלֶךְ אֶל הַמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר אָמַר לוֹ הָאֱ-לֹהִים

בראשית כב:ג

va-yash-kaym av-ra-ham ba-bo-ker va-ya-kha-vosh et kha-mo-ro ... va-yay-lekh el ha-ma-kom a-sher a-mar lo ha-e-lo-heem

Today's Israel Inspiration

We learn an invaluable life lesson from just one Hebrew word in today's verse - awoke earlyוַיַּשְׁכֵּם. Abraham was zealous to do God’s will at the first sign of daybreak, teaching that we too should grab opportunities to do good without hesitation. Fast forward 3,000 years and meet  ZAKA volunteers who follow in Abraham's footsteps. ZAKA is Israel's incredible volunteer terrorism and disaster emergency response organization. Volunteers remain on call every hour of the day ready to rush to any tragic scene to save lives. With the increase in terror, ZAKA is in dire need of 5 new ambulances to carry out their sacred mission throughout Israel. No matter where you live in the world, you can partner with ZAKA for the benefit of mankind. Help save lives, strengthen faith, and strengthen Israel.

Israeli Traffic Behind an Ambulance Gets Interesting

What happens when Israelis are stuck in traffic behind an ambulance at the scene of a tragedy? You must watch their reactions!

As Deaths in Israel Rise from Wave of Terror, Search & Rescue Ambulances Needed

Typically, ZAKA volunteers deal with an average of 30 incidents of unnatural deaths every week. But with the current wave of terror, ZAKA is being swamped with a dramatic increase of incidences throughout Israel.

(Lupin Hill), central Israel.

Yesterday's Photo Trivia

Yesterday's photo featured the Tower of David (in Hebrew, מגדל דוד, Migdal David), an ancient citadel located near the Jaffa Gate at the entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem. Despite its name, the tower has no connection to King David, but rather dates back to the Ottoman empire.
