Israel Photo Trivia ✡ “The House Fell Upon the Lords” – ISRAEL365

And Samson said: ‘Let me die with the Philistines.’
And he bent with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead that he slew at his death were more than they that he slew in his life.

וַיֹּאמֶר שִׁמְשׁוֹן תָּמוֹת נַפְשִׁי עִם-פְּלִשְׁתִּים, וַיֵּט בְּכֹחַ וַיִּפֹּל הַבַּיִת עַל-הַסְּרָנִים וְעַל-כָּל-הָעָם אֲשֶׁר-בּוֹ וַיִּהְיוּ הַמֵּתִים אֲשֶׁר הֵמִית בְּמוֹתו רַבִּים מֵאֲשֶׁר הֵמִית בְּחַיָּיו

Today’s Israel Inspiration

Samson’s prayer to die among his Philistine oppressors, taking his own life for the sake of his people, is one of the most stirring moments in the Bible. Samson has served as a model for soldiers of Israel who have been willing to give up their lives to save the Jewish People. A striking modern example is Major Ro’i Klein, who during the second Lebanon War jumped on a grenade, lest it blow up and kill his comrades. Dying with the holy words of “’Shema Yisrael’ – Hear O Israel, the Lord is Our God, the Lord is One” on his lips, he sacrificed his life to save other soldiers who were fighting for the Land of Israel.

This Just In: Scenes of Israel Kippa!

Created by two former lone soldiers, these stunning Kippas are adorned with scenes of Israel that will make you feel closer to home and close to God every moment of the day. Though there is no explicit mention of the Kippa in the Hebrew Bible, the Talmud teaches of the obligation to cover one’s head upon mentioning God’s name in order to exhibit true humility in the face of his Creator. The Kippa, therefore, is a reminder to the wearer of the importance to constantly keep God on one’s mind, enabling one to remain humble and refrain from sin.
