Isaiah’s stirring words take on incredible meaning in our generation, as the Land of Israel stands at the forefront of the world’s attention like never before. Efforts to vilify the Jewish State seem to expand every day across the globe, as does the growing movement of Biblical Zionists who stand with the nation of Israel as an expression of their commitment to God’s word. In just two months, the Holy Land will be celebrating 50 years since the reunification of Jerusalem in our times, the historic outcome of the 1967 war. With the anniversary only weeks away, Israel365 is already gearing up to rejoice Jerusalem’s jubilee! Now you can join the celebration by bringing Jerusalem into your home and into your hearts with our collection of Jerusalem products.
The lyrics of this beautiful song come from the Book of Psalms 137: 5-6 and are in fact recited at every Jewish wedding so that every bride and groom will remember that Jerusalem should always be at the forefront of our hearts and our minds.
Inside every rectangular mezuzah case is a parchment. On that parchment are two paragraphs of the Torah hand-written by a specialist known as a ‘Sofer’. The ‘Sofer’ is trained for many years in how to properly write the words on the parchment, and also on how to have the proper intention and focus while he is writing the word of God. A ‘Sofer’ is also generally trained in writing Torah scrolls, and the parchments held in the Phylacteries worn by men during prayer.
Sharon Gabay’s image features a snowy day just outside Jerusalem’s Old City walls. The walls were built in the early 16th century by the Turkish Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, with eight gates in its perimeter. Suleiman mistakenly excluded an important site: the City of David and David’s Palace were later discovered close to, but not within, the Sultan’s walls.
