The City of Peace ✡ “A Sacrifice Of Well-Being”- Israel365

If his offering is a sacrifice of well-being—If he offers of the herd, whether a male or a female, he shall bring before Hashem one without blemish
Leviticus 3:1 (The Israel Bible™)

וְאִם־זֶבַח שְׁלָמִים קָרְבָּנוֹ אִם מִן־הַבָּקָר הוּא מַקְרִיב אִם־זָכָר אִם־נְקֵבָה תָּמִים יַקְרִיבֶנּוּ לִפְנֵי יְהֹוָה

v’-im ZE-vakh sh’-la-MEEM kor-ba-NO im min ha-ba-KAR HU mak-REEV im za-KHAR im n’-kay-VAH ta-MEEM yak-ree-VE-nu lif-NAY a-do-NAI

The City of Peace

The sacrifice of well-being is often called the ‘peace-offering’ based on its Hebrew name, korban sh’lamim (קרבן שלמים), which comes from the Hebrew word shalom (שלום), ‘peace.’ According to Jewish tradition, it is so called because the korban sh’lamim symbolizes peace and unity, as it is the only offering that is shared by everyone involved: Hashem(God), the priest and the owner of the sacrifice. It is perhaps not a coincidence that it is also the only offering that is not restricted to the Beit Hamikdash (Holy Temple), but may be eaten anywhere in the city of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem). Yerushalayim, the Hebrew name for Jerusalem, also has the word shalom at its root. It is known as the eer shel shalom (עיר של שלום), ‘city of peace.’ We pray for the time when peace and unity, symbolized by the korban sh’lamim, will return to Jerusalem, and to all of Israel.
