The Book of Proverbs contains the collected wisdom of Shlomo, the wisest king to sit on the throne in Israel. Proverbs 1:7 sets the tone for the entire book of Proverbs. Once King Solomon has set out his purpose – to impart wisdom – in writing, he begins by identifying fear of Hashem as the root of that wisdom. Without awe of God, knowledge is empty and can be twisted for any number of negative purposes. The entire Torah, not just the Book of Proverbs, is packed full of eternal wisdom and knowledge. The Israel Institute of Biblical Studies will help you unlock these holy messages and understand the language of the Bible.
The Book of Jonah is read on Yom Kippur in synagogues in Israel and throughout the world. We can learn life lessons from the prophet Jonah and apply his great journey to our own struggles. On Yom KIppur, synagogues are packed and even worshippers who don’t ordinarily attend are present and accounted for on this holiest of days.
“Sing, O ye heavens, for Hashem hath done it; shout, ye lowest parts of the earth; break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein; for Hashem hath redeemed Yaakov, and doth glorify Himself in Yisrael.” Isaiah 44:23
