Israel’s Modern Day Warriors ✡ “And Take With Thee Ten Thousand Men” – ISRAEL365

‘Hath not Hashem, the God of Israel, commanded, saying: Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naftali and of the children of Zevulun?

הֲלֹא צִוָּה יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לֵךְ וּמָשַׁכְתָּ בְּהַר תָּבוֹר וְלָקַחְתָּ עִמְּךָ עֲשֶׂרֶת  אֲלָפִים אִישׁ מִבְּנֵי נַפְתָּלִי וּמִבְּנֵי זְבֻלוּן

Today’s Israel Inspiration

The prophetess Devorah instructs Barak in God’s name  that he is to “draw to Mount Tavor” and take ten thousand soldiers to fight the evil Sisera. “Drawing soldiers” does not mean simply drafting them. Rather, Devorah was instructing Barack to “draw at their hearts” so that they would overcome their fears and fight courageously. Rabbi Shlomo Aviner notes how important it is to pay attention to the emotional state and needs of our soldiers even today. He writes that “The secret weapon of the Israeli Defense Forces is their morale, strength and courage.” With constant threats from all of Israel’s borders, the IDF is never at rest while protecting the citizens of Israel.

The Daily Threat Facing Israel and the IDF

This week, Hamas celebrates 10 years of control over Gaza. The past decade has been filled with violence and attacks on Israeli civilians which has kept the IDF very busy.
