Shabbat Shalom ✡ “A People That Shall Dwell Alone” – ISRAEL365

For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from thehills I behold him: lo, it is a people that shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations

כִּי-מֵרֹאשׁ צֻרִים אֶרְאֶנּוּ וּמִגְּבָעוֹת אֲשׁוּרֶנּוּ  הֶן-עָם לְבָדָד יִשְׁכֹּן וּבַגּוֹיִם לֹא יִתְחַשָּׁב

במדבר כג: ט

kee may-rosh tzu-reem er-e-nu u-mig-va-ot a-shu-re-nu hel am l’-va-dad yish-kon u-va-go-yeem lo yit-kha-shav

Shabbat Inspiration

Today’s verse describes an attempt by the wicked Balaam to curse the Jewish people. His plan was foiled by God, and instead he utters a reluctant compliment, “Indeed this is a people that dwells alone and is not counted among the nations.” For better and for worse, the Jews have always been set aside from among the nations and singled out for special treatment. Israel receives an utterly disproportionate amount of coverage by the media, most of it negative, yet there is an inherently positive lesson in this solitude: the people of Israel are singled out for a holy purpose. They are chosen by God to remain faithful to Him and to fulfill the Biblical mandate of teaching His truths to the world. Now you can wear a personal reminder of God’s words and biblical truths. Our beautiful collection of Nano jewelry is engraved with words of Scripture from the Land of Israel.

“Jewish Soul” Music CD

This album of Jewish soul music captures the multifaceted talent of Cantor Deborah Katchko-Gray.

Cantor Deborah’s stirring “Hineni” will haunt and move you, while her folksy English songs like “We Came to Sing in Jerusalem” will leave the listener humming and uplifted. Let her beautiful voice and gifted music inspire you!
