“Come and Celebrate With Us” ✡ Fabulous Chalk Art in Jerusalem – ISRAEL365

“Whoever is in need, let him come and celebrate with us. This year we are here; next year may we be in the
Land of Israel.”

Passover Haggadah
 

וְכָל דִּצְרִיךְ לְפַסַּח יֵיתֵי וִיפַסַּח  שַׁתָּא הָכָא לַשָּׁנָה הַבָּאָה בְּאַרְעָא דְּיִשְׂרָאֵל

הגדה של פסח

v’-khol ditz-reekh l’-pa-sakh yay-tay vee-pa-sakh sha-ta ha-kha la-sha-na ha-ba-a b’-ar-a d’-yis-ra-ayl

Shabbat Inspiration

Today’s verses seem totally unrelated: the first is an invitation to the needy, and the second expresses the eternal hope of the Jewish people to return to Israel. A great Torah commentator, the Hidda, gave a fascinating explanation for the hidden connection between these two verses. He says that one reason why God expelled the people from His land was their failure to provide for the poor (see Lamentations 1:3). Thus by caring for those less fortunate, we are rectifying this error and bringing closer the Ultimate Redemption. For Passover, the incredible non-profit organization, Meir Panim, will be giving 5,300 pre-paid grocery cards and boxes of food to elderly, impoverished and struggling families, while also conducting festive Seders in their dignified soup kitchens.

Even in Wartime, the Poor Aren’t Forgotten

Imagine being confined to a bomb shelter for days on end. This was the reality for thousands of Israelis during the 2006 war with Hezbollah. The huge need for food and supplies was met by Meir Panim on the frontlines.
 

When My Brother Cries Out, I Will Answer

For many less fortunate families throughout Israel who struggle to provide their children with even the most basic necessities, holidays are usually filled with utter disappointment. Hear how one women galvanized her community in Israel to put smiles on the faces of local needy children.

Touch Israel Biblical Map

Touch biblical Israel with this scaled, topographically contoured map of Israel as it was in Biblical times. It is labeled with all of the towns, cities, regions, rivers and lakes mentioned in the Bible. See exactly where each tribe settled in the Land, the locations of the surrounding nations, and the roads that the patriarchs walked. Any place with special Biblical status, such as Cities of Refuge, is marked on the map. Feel the valleys and mountains of Israel under your fingers and understand the Bible in a totally new way!
