Find the Star of David in Nature ✡ "If You Follow My Statutes"

If you follow My statutes and observe My commandments and perform them, I will give your rains in their time, the Land will yield its produce, and the tree of the field will give forth its fruit.

LEVITICUS (26:3-4)

אִם בְּחֻקֹּתַי בחוקותי תֵּלֵכוּ וְאֶת מִצְו‍ֹתַי תִּשְׁמְרוּ וַעֲשִׂיתֶם אֹתָם וְנָתַתִּי גִשְׁמֵיכֶם בְּעִתָּם וְנָתְנָה הָאָרֶץ יְבוּלָהּ וְעֵץ הַשָּׂדֶה יִתֵּן פִּרְיוֹ

ויקרא כו:ג,ד

im b'-khu-ko-tai b'-khu-ko-tai tay-lay-khu v'-et mitz-vo-tai tish-m'-ru va-a-see-tem o-tam v'-na-ta-tee gish-may-khem b'-i-tam v'-nat-na ha-a-retz y'-vu-la v'-aytz ha-sa-de yi-tayn pree-yo

Shabbat Inspiration

Look closely at today's verse; are the beautiful blessings promised by God material or spiritual in nature, and why? Notice that only material rewards for prosperity are listed, with no mention of earned spiritual merit. Our Sages found this strange and explained it as follows: One who has food and security, and all of his needs met, will find it easier for continue fulfilling God's commandments, which obviously earns spiritual rewards as well. Join Karmey Chesed (Vineyards of Kindness) in bringing down blessings to the world and providing the poor of Israel with all their needs!

New Music Video for Terror Victim

This new music video expresses the beauty of the constantly outstretched hands of a young Israeli woman, Dalia Lemkus, obm, who was a giant in kindness to the sick and infirm. She was murdered by a terrorist last summer.

Jerusalem Day this Sunday!

It was 48 years ago this coming week that the IDF, with great heroism and Divine providence, liberated the Jewish People’s historic holy capital. This led, within a very short time, to its official unification under Jewish sovereignty for the first time in nearly 1,900 years.

Shivat Pomegranate Body Peeling Oil

The pomegranate is a symbol of beauty and fertility, well known for its healing capacity, high antioxidant contents and richness in vitamins and nutrients. This soothing body oil with natural pomegranate is made in Israel by Shivat ("seven") referring to the biblical seven species which all contain healthful nutrients that benefit the body and promote wellness.

Today's Israel Photo

Yehuda Poch's photo of a pomegranate ("rimon") in Israel. At its crown, the pomegranate has a six part star and is the only place the Magen David / Star of David appears in nature. According to Jewish teachings, the numerous seeds in the Pomegranate represent the 613 commandments of the Torah.

"The Month For the Pomegranate: The Fullness of Seeds Maturing" Chuck D. Pierce

"The Month For the Pomegranate: 
The Fullness of Seeds Maturing"

Chuck D. Pierce
Corinth, TX

This is the month for the pomegranate. That is the fruit that matures at the time of the Feast of Tabernacles. This is a heavenly fruit that represents the fullness of seeds maturingThe pomegranate represents overcoming, healing, and success. I declare that every seed that you have planted in the past year, 5774-2014, “The Year of the Door,” will give access into new places.

Prophetic Word of the Lord:

"I have put a SHOUT within My People! The SHOUT of the Lord dwells deep within your inward parts! Shout! My blast through you will cause your enemies to perish! Do not hold back! Loose that shout! By the breath of My nostrils, your enemies will be consumed. Be anointed with the fragrance of the pomegranate. Blow healing into your atmosphere! There is a power of overcoming and a success waiting for you through your door and in your new field.

"The roaring of the enemy is like a lion waiting to see whom he will devour. The voice of the fierce lion is resounding and the teeth of the young lions are gnashing and attempting to find prey to tear. The old lions are perishing for lack of prey! The stout lions are being scattered abroad, searching for victims. The old lions from your past have been rising up and trying to devour you! Old lions which have been guarding the field and its territory!

"This is a day for them to perish and let go of your field so My transfer of authority can begin. The old lions are the old fears, old insecurities, old wounds, and old traumas that have been keeping you out of your field in past seasons. Decree that they must let go of the field so your field will be a new field to harvest for the future. Strong lions have captured and marked the field in past seasons. They have built a lair and created a stronghold.

"Now, you go into the field! You re-mark the boundaries so they become MY boundaries! You declare that 'My God is now entering my field. The boundaries are marked for the future!'"

Pakistani Christians Protest for Israel Travel - ISRAEL365

[A Psalm] of David: Praise the Lord, my soul; all my innermost being, praise His holy name.

PSALM (103:1)

Today's Israel Photo

A beautiful sunset over Lake Kinneret by Boruch Len. The Kinneret, or Sea of Galilee, is Israel’s largest fresh water reservoir and most important source of drinking water. No wonder that winter rain forecasts and water levels grab the nation's attention and often reflect the national spirit.

Yesterday's Photo Trivia

Yesterday's photo featured the Roman Theatre of Caesarea. Built during the period of Herod in the Second Temple times, it was only recently uncovered in the 1950's. It stands as the oldest theatre discovered in Israel.

I adore my grandmother's Jewish Apple Cake recipe, but I always wondered what it would taste like if I gave the recipe a healthy makeover. This version has less sugar and half the fat of the original. All-purpose refined flour is replaced with white whole wheat flour, which is softer and finer than regular whole wheat flour, but just as full of fiber and nutrients.

In fact, "lightened-up" may be a bit of a misnomer -- like the original, this is a sturdy cake with a dense crumb. It's also still delicious, and since it's so wholesome, it's even easier to justify eating leftover apple cake for breakfast.

Tip: Choose firm, crisp apple varieties that stand up well to baking. I like to use a mix of sweet-tart apples such as Pink Lady or Lady Alice, Galas, and Fujis.

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 55 minutes
Yield: Serves 10 to 12


For the Apples:
4 large or 6 small firm apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
For the Cake Batter:
3 cups white whole wheat flour (or a mix of all-purpose and white whole wheat flour)
1 2/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of mild-flavored oil, such as expeller-pressed canola, grapeseed, or walnut oil
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. (If you are using a dark or nonstick pan, preheat the oven to 325° F to prevent burning.) Grease a tube pan with a removable bottom.

2. Place the apple slices, cinnamon and sugar in a large bowl, and toss together gently, until the apples are evenly coated with the cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.

3. In another large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the oil, eggs, orange juice, and vanilla, and stir with a sturdy wooden spoon just until you have a smooth, thick batter.

4. Pour about 1/3 of the batter into the prepared tube pan. If necessary, use a spatula to spread the batter so it covers the bottom of the pan. Layer about 1/3 of the apple slices over the batter. (If possible, try to avoid touching the sides of the pan with the apples to prevent sticking.) Continue layering the apples and batter so you have 3 layers of each, ending with the apples. For an especially pretty cake, arrange the final layer of apple slices in slightly overlapping concentric circles on top of the batter (the apple slices will spread out as the cake bakes). If there is any cinnamon sugar "syrup" remaining in the apple bowl, drizzle a little over the cake.

5. Place a cookie sheet or piece of foil on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any drips. Place the cake on the center rack of the preheated oven and bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes to 1 1/2 hours, or until a tester comes out clean and the top of the cake is golden.

6. Place the cake on a wire rack and allow to cool in the pan. When it has cooled completely, run a knife or offset spatula around the edge. Carefully remove the outside of the cake pan. Gently run a knife or offset spatula between the cake and the pan bottom to loosen. Invert the cake over a plate and ease it off the pan bottom (the cake will be upside down on the plate). Place a cake plate face down on the bottom side of the cake, and holding both plates, flip the cake, so it is right-side (apple-side) up. Enjoy!
