A beautiful interpretation of today’s verse hints to the days of Joshua when the Jews entered the Land of Israel. Located near the Jordan River, Ein Gedi is on the border that the Jewish people crossed upon entering the Land. And just like the henna tree was a permanent fixture of this region, God’s presence became a permanent fixture on earth when the Jews entered Israel as a nation for the first time. See if you can find the famous oasis of Ein Gedi on The Israel Bible Map!
Wear a piece of biblical Jerusalem with this earring set, designed based on archaeological finds in the City of David in Jerusalem. These earrings are related to Queen Helene, the Assyrian queen who converted to Judaism during the Temple period. The earrings are fashioned in the style of the Roman era and echo the movements of their rule in Judea during the Second Temple period. Fashion of the time was of a Roman affluence and this earring set is made with silver and turquoise aqua quartz and a pair of white pearls dangling from them.
Shalom, It is my prayer that the miracle that happened in the days of Esther in Babylon will be the same miracle for today, in Israel. Bless you all, Robs
Dear Rabbi Tuly, Thank you for the emails each day which contain many stunning pictures of Israel, and the thoughtful Bible verses that go with them. Would you please add to them, though, the location, since without that information many of them could be anywhere in the world. Some of them of course are obvious, like shots of Jerusalem and the ‘Western Wall’, but it is a shame that many others cannot be identified. I look forward to hearing from you. Yours through God’s grace, Colin Wooden
