Our Homes Were Scorched, Our Hearts Are Consumed With Grief ✡ “Mouth Wide Against Us” – ISRAEL365

All our enemies have opened their mouth
wide against us.

Today’s Israel Inspiration

Many times in history, the enemies of the Jewish people eagerly awaited the day when the Jews would finally meet their ultimate demise. Alas, their plans have always been divinely foiled. This verse reflects the hatred that Israel’s enemies, both historical and contemporary, have always felt towards her. Less than one month ago, those who despise Israel took to the mountains and forests and set the country ablaze. Approximately 4,900 acres of land, including more than 500 homes in Haifa, were completely decimated, leaving behind only embers. Education Minister Naftali Bennet stated the fires could only be set by “someone who this land this does not belong to.” Weeks later, hundreds of families are still picking up the pieces, trying to put their lives back together, and rebuild the world that was destroyed.

Escaping the Raging Arson With Nothing But Their Lives

Listen as one family documents their narrow escape from their burning hometown of Moshav Beit Meir, just miles away from Jerusalem.

The Divine Consequences
of Forcibly Evicting Jews from the Land

The devastating fires which swept through Israel at the end of last month might very well be God’s punishment upon the Israeli government for planning to dismantle several Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

Today’s Israel Photo

The shocking damage caused to homes from the massive forest fires that plagues the Land of Israel throughout the last week of November is truly devastating. Gone are the homes where families once thrived, and in their place is nothing but ash.

“Stunning Pictures of Israel and the Thoughtful Bible Verse
That Go With Them”

It’s great to hear from you and make new friends from all over the world. Please send me an email and let me know how you are enjoying Israel365 (don’t forget to say where you are from!).

Dear Rabbi Tuly, Thank you for the emails each day which contain many stunning pictures of Israel, and the thoughtful Bible verses that go with them. Would you please add to them, though, the location, since without that information many of them could be anywhere in the world. Some of them of course are obvious, like shots of Jerusalem and the ‘Western Wall’, but it is a shame that many others cannot be identified. I look forward to hearing from you. Yours through God’s grace, Colin Wooden
