Tastes of Tel Aviv ✡ “Put Forth a Blossom” – ISRAEL365

Behold the staff of Aaron of the house of Levi
had blossomed; it put forth a blossom,
sprouted a bud and ripe almonds.

וְהִנֵּה פָּרַח מַטֵּה אַהֲרֹן לְבֵית לֵוִי; וַיֹּצֵא פֶרַח וַיָּצֵץ צִיץ וַיִּגְמֹל שְׁקֵדִים

Jerusalem Inspiration

A legendary Israeli storyteller describes three clergymen on a visit to Mount Zion in 1965. When they asked the Jewish curator why the Jews claim Jerusalem as their capital, he replied with a story. When Moses appointed Aaron as High Priest, a man named Korach objected. It was only once Aaron’s staff blossomed that the people accepted him as the High Priest, as the blossoming rod symbolized life and vitality. The curator then pointed and said: “In the old Arab section of the city there is desolation, yet here in new Jerusalem, everywhere you look you see life, growth, and vitality.  Jerusalem belongs to those who make it bud and blossom, to those who make it live and grow.”  Summer heat has caused massive forest fires across Israel. Planting trees is more important than ever!

Summer Forest Fires Hit Israel From North to South

Amidst scorching temperatures, forest fires have repeatedly ignited all the way from Israel’s most northern locations to her most southern cities, with no less than 55 forested areas burned.

Yesterday’s Photo Trivia

Yesterday’s photo featured the courtyard of the Temple Mount, in Hebrew ‘ha-kha-tzayr’.  On the pilgrimage festivals, hoards of people approached the Temple with their sacrificial offerings converging at this very location.

I recently signed up for  your posts and enjoy reading them. Our church people all pray for Israel as we know bad times are ahead. I wish I could move to Israel to help but I am 80 years old so can’t – but I pray for Israel!  Ann Boulden, a listener in the “outback” of New Mexico
