The built-up Jerusalem is like a city
that was joined together within itself.

Today’s Israel Inspiration

Here’s a cool fact about Jerusalem hospitality during Temple times! Three times a year, Jews from all over the nation ascended to the Temple, including on Passover. There was a custom for Jerusalemites to warmly welcome and host all visitors, free of charge. It was this custom that led today’s verse to be interpreted by our Sages as “all Israel are ‘chaverim’ – friends,” a word sharing the same root ח-ב-ר as “joined together.”
Colel Chabad has continued this noble tradition since 1788 by sustaining the most destitute citizens of Jerusalem, especially at Passover time.

Sterling Silver Jerusalem Kiddush Cup

Today, as in the days of old, Jews recite holiday, Sabbath and wedding blessings over a cup of wine. On the Sabbath, the designated cup for the blessing over the wine is meant to be a beautiful vessel and it is often the custom to use silver cups called “Kiddush cups.” This specific Kiddush cup has a motif of Jerusalem, Judaism’s holiest city, where the Temple stood. Made of Sterling silver, and wrapped with a band inscribed twice with the word JERUSALEM – once in Hebrew and once in English on opposing sides of the Kiddush cup. This piece was made in the electroforming method. Marks: 925 for Sterling silver.
