The IDF: Joshua’s Spiritual Heirs ✡ “Go With This People” – ISRAEL365

And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel: ‘Be strong and of good courage; for thou shalt go with this people into the land which Hashem hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it.

וַיִּקְרָא מֹשֶׁה לִיהוֹשֻׁעַ וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו לְעֵינֵי כָל יִשְׂרָאֵל חֲזַק וֶאֱמָץ כִּי אַתָּה תָּבוֹא אֶת הָעָם הַזֶּה אֶל הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּע יְהוָה לַאֲבֹתָם לָתֵת לָהֶם וְאַתָּה תַּנְחִילֶנָּה אוֹתָם

Shabbat Inspiration

In today’s verse, Moses encourages Joshua to be “strong and courageous” as he readies himself to lead the people to settle the Land of Israel. Though the battle for the Holy Land will not be easy, it is no doubt well worth the fight. Three thousand years later, Joshua’s spiritual heirs can be found among the ranks of the Israel Defense Forces, men and women who demonstrate strength and courage every single day in serving their country and their nation. With the new Jewish year upon us, the IDF is on call 24/7, more determined than ever to ensure Israel a safe New Year.

Treating the Wounded, Caring for the Injured

The IDF can “build” a clean, safe, well-equipped field hospital where 200 patients can be treated per day – in an incredible 12 hours!

The Iron Dome Goes North!

Earlier in September, the Iron Dome Missile Defense system stopped two projectiles fired from Syria into the Golan Heights, defending Israel’s northern cities from terror!
