“The mountain of Thine inheritance” is understood to be either the Temple Mount or the entire Land of Israel. When Hashem says that the Jewish people will be planted in the Land of Israel, He means that they will establish roots there and flourish. The Midrash explains that this is a reference to the times of Mashiach, when the Children of Israel will be brought back to the Land of Israel, never to be uprooted again. For two thousand years, Jews have been asking for the fulfillment of this verse each week as part of the Shabbat prayers, “that you should bring us with happiness to our land and plant us in our borders”. Now you can help bring God’s promise to fruition and deepen Judaism’s roots in the Holy Land.
Every commandment fulfilled in the Holy Land is accompanied by a special blessing to mark the significance of fulfilling God’s mitzvot (good deeds). Learn the prayer over planting a fruit tree in Israel!
“Looking Out” over the ramparts of the ancient city of Jerusalem, one can see the Montefiore Windmill. The windmill was erected through the efforts of noted British Jewish banker and philanthropist Moses Montefiore. Today it proudly stands in the midst of the Mishkenot Sha’ananim neighborhood.
If you guessed Rosh Hanikra, you are correct! For thousands of years, the ocean’s waves pounding against the rocks have formed the most beautiful grottoes in the northern city of Rosh Hanikra, which is located near Haifa. Rosh Hanikra’s stunning geological formations are now a popular tourist attraction and a calming place of serenity.

Shalom from Kokomo, Indiana. My wife & I embrace Israel and believe it is the rightful country set aside for the chosen people of God. We are Christians and yet stand firm for the Jewish culture and beliefs. As Gentiles we too love our Holy Father God. We struggle in America because of hatred, violence and cruelty and yet fail in comparison to the enormous struggles of our Jewish friends. May God’s blessings pour in abundance His deep love and mercy for all of Israel. Many Americans stand in solidarity with Israel and will fight along side if the need comes. God bless you and God bless and enrich all of Israel and protect the IDF. Shalom my friend. Ken Rainey
