Bring the Holy Land Into Your Home ✡ "Unto Mount Carmel" - ISRAEL365

And Ahab sent unto all Bnei Yisrael, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel.

וַיִּשְׁלַח אַחְאָב בְּכָל בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וַיִּקְבֹּץ אֶת הַנְּבִיאִים אֶל הַר הַכַּרְמֶל

Today's Israel Inspiration

In ancient Canaanite culture, high places such as mountains and hilltops, were often considered sacred and special; Mount Carmel among them. In the book of Kings, we read that there was an altar to God on Mount Carmel, but it had most unfortunately fallen into ruin by the time King Ahab took the throne. Elijah the Prophet pooled his resources and built a new altar which then became the site of one of the Bible's most well-known scenes. It was on Mount Carmel that Elijah offered a sacrifice to God in a request for rain in the Land of Israel. When God answered the prophet's prayer, and rain began to fall, multitudes of Israel's Jews were immediately inspired and once again recognized Hashem as the true God. This was a pivotal moment in Jewish history when the prophet proved God's omnipotence even in the face of countless nonbelievers. Remember the story of Elijah the Prophet, and many others, with this Biblical Israel calendar.

What Are You Worth?


This short, interesting video discusses why each individual only brought a half shekel coin to the Temple in order to be included in the cencus. Why not bring more if you can? In this video, you will discover why you are only worth half a shekel. The half-shekel coin was extremely important in the days of the Temple, and archaeologists have found this precious coin. City of David has replicated it as a stunning piece of Jewelry.
