Today’s Israel Inspiration

In ancient times, olive oil was an integral part of the service in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. The olive oil used in the temple was produced from olives grown in groves across the Land of Israel. After recovering the vandalized Temple from the Greeks, the Maccabees fashioned a makeshift menorah, but were able to find only one flask of pure olive oil which had not been contaminated by the Greeks. This flask contained enough oil to burn for one day, but God miraculously allowed the small amount of oil to burn for eight days. During Chanukah, we light the menorah for eight nights to celebrate the miracle of light, the victory of good over evil and the restoration of the temple service. This Chanukah, plant olive trees in Israel and enable a holy light to be spread across the nation.

“I Am Praying for Israel”

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!).

Hello Rabbi Tuly, It is on my TO DO LIST to come to Israel. I have always had a deep love for the Chosen People. I send prayers email wise to the Walling Wall where they put them in. Many prayers have been answered. I am into family ancestry. 2015 I had a DNA test, and to my surprise it revealed my German Ancestors were Jewish. I don’t know who they were at this point, but it made me happy to know this. Also some of my ancestors have the name TULLY! Those are Irish. I searched online and i indicated the royal family in England has Jewish DNA. I watch 2 Jewish Channels  we have on TV. I live in MI in the USA. I am praying for Israel. Wishing you a wonderful day, Carol
