“Out of the Jordan” ✡ Cool Fact of Hebrew Month of Nissan – ISRAEL365

And the people came up out of the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and encamped in Gilgal, in the east border of Jericho.

וְהָעָם עָלוּ מִן הַיַּרְדֵּן בֶּעָשֹוֹר לַחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשׁוֹן וַיַּחֲנוּ בַּגִּלְגָּל בִּקְצֵה מִזְרַח יְרִיחוֹ

Today’s Israel Inspiration

The Hebrew month of Nissan is called “the first month” in our verse, and “on the tenth day” the Children of Israel ascended from the Jordan onto the holy soil of Israel for the first time. Amazingly, the tenth day of Nissan is also mentioned in the Book of Exodus (12:2-3), as the day, forty years earlier, when the Israelites were instructed to sacrifice the Passover lamb. Thus we learn that the Passover offering gave merit to the nation to enter the Holy Land. Earn merit by supporting the poor of Israel this Passover, and receive a beautiful gift in the mail.
