Israel Photo Trivia ✡ “And Blessed Them” – ISRAEL365

וַיַּשְׁכֵּם לָבָן בַּבֹּקֶר וַיְנַשֵּׁק לְבָנָיו וְלִבְנוֹתָיו וַיְבָרֶךְ אֶתְהֶם  וַיֵּלֶךְ וַיָּשָׁב לָבָן לִמְקֹמוֹ

Today’s Israel Inspiration

In the Book of Genesis we are introduced to the beautiful custom of blessing others. In Judaism it is taught that every person has the power to bestow blessings, if conferred with genuine sincerity. From today’s verse we see that even the blessings of the deceitful Laban were potent, since he gave them to his family wholeheartedly.

Today’s sponsor would like to share the following message:

Israel with Jerusalem as its capital is the centre of the world. The Jews have a special place in God’s Kingdom and always will. As God promised in Genesis 12:3 we will be blessed when we support Israel. Unfortunately the opposite is also true.
