King David likens himself to an olive tree – how so? When enemies of the Jewish people come to destroy and take the Land of Israel, they put their trust in their own physical power. That’s all there is. However, King David reveals the secret to the eternity of the Jewish people: “But I am like a fresh olive tree in the house of God; I trusted in the kindness of God forever and ever.” Bring the blessings of Israel into your own home and enjoy some of Israel’s best extra virgin olive oil!
Recently children visited an ancient olive press to learn how it was done in the “olden days.” An ox or donkey would be harnessed to the beam and turn the grinding stone. But these children had their own ideas.
An olive grove in Yavne’el in the lower Galilee. Yavne’el is mentioned in the Book of Joshua as a border town in the tribal area of Naphtali. This beautiful village overlooks the Sea of Galilee on one side, and sits in a lush valley opposite Mount Tabor.
Hi A blessed day to you Rabbi Tuly. Thank you for the very educational emails you’ve been sending. They help me understand where I am as a Christian as well as the prophecies in the Bible. God bless you more.- Fred Lumba
Hello Rabbi Weisz, Just wanted to let you know that I’m another evangelical Christian who believes that God gave the land of Israel to the Jewish people forever. And now that they’re back in it, there’s no way they will ever be driven out again. You can take that to the bank! Furthermore, I make it my aim to bless the Jewish people, knowing the promise that God made to Abraham and his descendants…So, Blessings and Peace be to you.- David Smith
