Beginning Anew in the Land of Israel ✡ "The Tender Branch Thereof Will Not Cease" - ISRAEL365

For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down,
that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.

כִּי יֵשׁ לָעֵץ תִּקְוָה אִם יִכָּרֵת וְעוֹד יַחֲלִיף וְיֹנַקְתּוֹ לֹא תֶחְדָּל

איוב יד:ז
kee yaysh la-AYTZ tik-VAH im yi-ka-RAYT v’-OD ya-kha-LEEF v’-yo-nak-TO lo
tekh-DAL

Shabbat Inspiration

Job contrasts the death of man to the death of a tree. Once a man has departed from this world, he can not be brought back to life. A tree, on the other hand, though seemingly lifeless, can be revived. Similarly, Isaiah writes that though a tree appears dead after it sheds its leaves in the fall, the trunk remains from which the tree will flower again in the spring. Isaiah compares the Children of Israel to the tree. Though at times it appears that they will be annihilated and cease to exist, a holy remnant always remains from which they will grow anew and flourish (Isaiah 6:13). There is no greater example of Jewish survival and renewal than our precious Holocaust survivors. Despite enduring unimaginable loss, pain, and suffering, many survivors of the Holocaust made their way to Israel where they began their life anew. Unfortunately, many of these elderly survivors in Israel are living below the poverty line and are in dire need of assistance procuring basic necessities such as food and medication.

Presenting a Restoration Ring to a Holocaust Survivor

The concept of the restoration ring initially began with Bye who had imagined that people would donate old jewelry they no longer wanted nor needed, or even old trinkets which were broken or out of fashion to create  rings for Holocaust survivors.

"Fear Not"- The most commonly used phrase in the Bible

The words "fear not" appear 80 times in the Torah. This is more than any other phrase in the BIble. God says these words to all three patriarchs; Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as well as to all of the prophets. God also instructs the prophets to relay this message to the Jewish People. By repeating this phrase over and over, God is telling us that we have the power and the capacity to overcome any challenges which we may face in life.
