Why are the children of Abraham compared to the stars? Hannah Senesh was a brave heroine who volunteered to leave Palestine to fight with the partisans against the Nazis. In one of her beautiful poems she wrote, “There are stars whose radiance is visible on earth though they have long been extinct. There are people whose brilliance continues to light the world though they are no longer among the living. These lights are particularly bright when the night is dark. They light the way for mankind.” Like the stars in Senesh’s poem, the Jew’s role in this world is to be a “light unto the nations”. Today, the children of Israel have returned to the land. Unfortunately, this return has been accompanied by many hardships and tragedy, especially for communities which have been directly affected by war and terrorism. While the Biblical city of Shiloh has been revived into a modern and flourishing city, many of its inhabitants have been traumatized by acts of terrorism. The Shiloh Israel Children's Fund is working to provide the care and therapy required to the affected children of Shilo.
Now is a critical time for Israel’s future and the complete fulfillment of Ezekiel 36. Christians in particular must make their voices heard and step into action, especially those who say that they pray for the Holy Land.
In the incredible Nano Bible, the spirit and technology of Israel have come together to produce the world’s smallest bible, printed onto a single 5mm x 5mm surface. Now you can take the Bible and the spirit of Israel with you wherever you go.
Boruch Len's breathtaking photo of star trails over British Park in central Israel. This gorgeous setting extends over some 40,000 dunam (approx 10,000 acres) of the Judean plain, including a JNF planted forest, natural woodland, archaeological sites, and of course, great spots for stargazing!
