Suppose he sees the sword advancing against the country, and he blows the horn and warns the people.

Today’s Israel Inspiration

The ram’s horn, in Hebrew shofar, has been a central symbol of Jewish life since Biblical times. The Bible describes many occasions in which the shofar is sounded. As in the above verse, the shofar was blown as a call to war, and also once every 50 years to announce the Jubilee. Today, the shofar is best known as the central aspect of Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year) as commanded in the Book of Numbers 29:1, “You shall observe it as a day when the horn is sounded.” More than anything, sounding the shofar continues to serve as a call for prayer and repentance in the Jewish world and beyond. The shofar blasts serve as a connection between worshipers to Hashem and to the Torah. For the past few weeks, readers from around the world have been submitting their video entries to participate in Israel365’s first annual shofar blowing contest. Submit your video by the end of the day for a chance to win.

Over the course of history, the verse of Genesis 12:3 has proven to be timeless. Those who bless Israel will be blessed, and the nations of the world will “be blessed in you.” The modern fulfillment of this Biblical promise is the State of Israel which in so many ways is indeed a great blessing and model to the entire world and all of the nations.
