Be a Warrior in the Fight Against Poverty ✡ “They Shall Obtain Gladness” – ISRAEL365

And the ransomed of Hashem shall return, and come with singing unto Tzion, and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy,
and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

וּפְדוּיֵי יְהוָה יְשֻׁבוּן וּבָאוּ צִיּוֹן בְּרִנָּה וְשִׂמְחַת עוֹלָם עַל רֹאשָׁם שָׂשׂוֹן וְשִׂמְחָה יַשִּׂיגוּ וְנָסוּ יָגוֹן וַאֲנָחָה

ישעיהו לה:י

Today’s Israel Inspiration

The Hebrew language has many words to describe happiness. According to Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, ‘osher’ (אשר) refers to the personal happiness that one experiences, such as when listening to music or observing something spectacular in nature. ‘Simkha’ (שמחה), on the other hand, is happiness that is created in the company of others, such as when celebrating at a wedding or laughing as a family. In this verse, Isaiah promises that the ransomed of the Lord will return with an everlasting joy, ‘simkhat olam,’ upon their heads. The collective joy of the redemption, of the nation returning to God and to the Holy Land, will be everlasting. Bring tremendous joy and happiness to the people of Israel who need it most.

Choosing Between a Warm Home or a Hot Meal

As the temperatures in Israel drop and the weather gets colder, Colel Chabad is doing its part to bring warmth to many Israelis who cannot afford to heat their homes.

Beautiful Challah Bread Board

The corners of this simple yet elegant wooden Challah (bread) board are adorned with an articulate Ancient Jerusalem motif, matching the knife’s handle. Engraved at the bottom of the board are the Hebrew words “Shabbat and Yom Tov” (Hebrew for “holiday”) referring to the times of year when the Challah board is typically used. The wooden center, which is uniquely carved with a modern Star of David through which the crumbs will fall onto the plate below, is removable, making the board fun to use and easy to clean.
