Deepening Our Roots in 5777 ✡ “Bnei Yisrael Came to Her” – ISRAEL365

And she sat under the palm-tree of Devorah between Ramah and Beit El in the hill-country of Ephraim; and Bnei Yisrael came up to her for judgment.

וְהִיא יוֹשֶׁבֶת תַּחַת תֹּמֶר דְּבוֹרָה בֵּין הָרָמָה וּבֵין בֵּית אֵל בְּהַר אֶפְרָיִם וַיַּעֲלוּ אֵלֶיהָ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לַמִּשְׁפָּט

Today’s Israel Inspiration

During the period following Joshua’s conquest over the Land of Israel and his ultimate passing, The Jewish nation was ruled by judges who guided the people and helped them focus on what God required from them. One such judge was Deborah, or Devorah in Hebrew. Unlike many of her predecessors, Devorah chose to settle herself at the base of a palm tree. It was here that the Jews would approach the prophetess, asking her to help settle disputes, clarify decisions, or even to pass judgment. According to one interpretation in the Talmud, Devorah’s choice to sit beneath the palm tree had significant symbolism. Just as the palm tree’s branches issue forth from one source i.e. the heart of the tree, so too the generation living in Devorah’s time were wholly united, beating as one heart, for their Father in Heaven.

Today’s Israel Photo

A single photo featuring both the Hermon mountain and almond blossoms in bloom comes to teach us the dichotomy of wonders in Israel’s nature and a very deep message: that even in the coldest of months, or in the darkest of times, there is always the potential for growth!
