At various points, King David refers to God as “my rock.” A rock represents both strength and protection, as rocks can protect travelers from the wind and rain. It is interesting to note that the Declaration of Independence of the State of Israel refers to “placing our trust in the Rock of Israel.” The ability to establish an independent Jewish State in the Land of Israel that would be free, democratic and able to absorb Jews from around the world would indeed require God’s help. Thankfully, the Rock of Israel continues to strengthen and protect the State of Israel. One of the most obvious ways in which God defends the people and the Land of Israel is through the brave men and women serving in the Israeli Defense Forces.
The IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War, has instructed the IDF to only refer to Jerusalem as the “unified” city rather than “liberated” or “occupied” city.
Thousands of people around the world have been blessed by learning their Hebrew names thanks to Israel365. We are thrilled to be continuing our Hebrew Name project through which anyone can discover the Biblical Hebrew origins of their name. New to Israel365 are these beautiful faux-leather display folders for your printed Hebrew Name Certificate. Not only will the cover provide extra protection to your certificate, it also allows for a more convenient display of your certificate to show off your Hebrew name! The new inclusion of these handsome cases really makes a Hebrew Name certificate from Israel365 a perfect and meaningful gift for a loved one.
And he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood over against him; and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed down to the earth,and said: ‘My lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant. Let now a little water be fetched, and wash your feet, and recline yourselves under the tree.” Genesis 18:2-4
