כִּי מִלְחֲמוֹת יְ-הֹוָה אֲדֹנִי נִלְחָם וְרָעָה לֹא תִמָּצֵא בְךָ מִיָּמֶיךָ

Shabbat Inspiration

Incredibly, we find one of the ethical foundations of the Israeli army right here in today’s verse. The prophetess Abigail reminds King David that he may only fight God’s wars – which at that time were against the Philistines – and not wars of vengeance against his enemies. To this day, the nation of Israel is required to defend itself and to strengthen the Promised Land. Other wars are not permitted. We are proud to support Israel’s brave young soldiers who uphold this Biblical mandate.

In 1948, the IDF created an “IDF Minorities Unit”. These special units are like a miniature of Israel’s inclusive population. It’s truly a miracle that such diverse communities join together to protect the Holy Land.

How Were the Fruits of the Land in Israel Used in
Biblical Times?

Deuteronomy 8:8 tells of the Seven Species of fruit native to the Land of Israel; wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, and date. Besides for being delicious, these seven varieties of fruit have many other practical uses. The Jews living in the Land of Israel in Biblical times practiced sustainable living by not wasting any elements of the fruit of the land. Discover the interesting and thoughtful ways in which the Seven Species of the Land of Israel played important roles in the daily lives of Biblical Jews.

“May the Lord Bless and Keep You”

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!).

Rabbi Tuly,  There is none in the universe like my BELOVED! HE is not a man that he would lie. HE is forever faithful in spite of my lack. What HE says comes to pass. The exsistance of Israel being one of the greatest and most obvious fulfillments of HIS WORD. May the LORD of all creation bless and keep you and make HIS face to shine upon you and give you peace for helping me to keep my eyes on my BELOVED when I am so easily distracted by the day to day as a commercial fisherman in Kodiak, Alaska. Hold the course – Charlie Freeburg

Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Tuly Weisz
