A Name and a Legacy ✡ “Let My Name Be Named In Them” – ISRAEL365

the angel who hath redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named in them, and the name of my fathers Avraham and Yitzchak; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.’

הַמַּלְאָךְ הַגֹּאֵל אֹתִי מִכָּל רָע יְבָרֵךְ אֶת הַנְּעָרִים וְיִקָּרֵא בָהֶם שְׁמִי וְשֵׁם אֲבֹתַי אַבְרָהָם וְיִצְחָק וְיִדְגּוּ לָרֹב בְּקֶרֶב הָאָרֶץ

Today’s Israel Inspiration

The Hebrew word for name is ‘shem.’ The great master of the Hebrew language, Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, explains that the word ‘shem’ is related to the word, ‘sham,’ meaning ‘there.’ Rabbi Hirsch explains that “in the realm of the mind, by naming and defining something, one puts it in its ‘proper place’.” Here, Jacob blesses his grandsons Ephraim and Manasseh, by placing their ancestors’ names upon them, establishing ‘their place’ within the spiritual legacy of their forebearers.  The legacy of the Patriarchs was one of kindness adn giving.  As the new year approaches please help Meir Panim provide for the needy of the Holy Land.

Make Some Noise and Stand Up for Israel

In a great YouTube video, an Israeli soldier urged people to shout out their love of Israel and overcome the deafening noise of anti-Israel lies. Viewers responded so positively and showered him with fantastic videos from around the world declaring their support for Israel.

The Hebrew Calendar and the Messiah’s Arrival!

A new movement marking the growing ways many Christians are moving closer to their Biblical roots is calling for Christians to switch from the Gregorian calendar to the Hebrew calendar.
