Treasure of Jewish History Recovered

{image_1}The Jewish link to the land of Iraq, historically known as Babylon, is embedded in the Bible. According to Jewish tradition, the Garden of Eden was located there, and leaders and prophets such as Daniel, Ezekiel, Ezra and Jonah are believed to be buried there. But by the mid-twentieth century, Jewish life began to unravel and Jews fled the country en masse, stripped of their citizenship and assets. For awhile it seemed that the incredible heritage of thousands of years of Jewish life in Babylon would be lost to the world. But God would miraculously use an oppressive, maniacal dictator and an unpopular war to preserve the history of His people.

With Friends Like That…

{image_1}There is an old saying, “With friends like that, who needs enemies?!” If it ever applied to anyone, it certainly does to Israel. Throughout the short history of this tiny nation, wars have been fought with precious few allies, international pressure handled with minimal partners, and an almost constant onslaught of terror endured with very few supporters. The international community has frequently refused to acknowledge Israel’s right to conduct its affairs in like manner to other sovereign nations, and often countries that seemed like friends one day, turned out to be foes the next. And it all began in 1947.

TORAH: The Center of Jewish Learning

{image_1}Torah is one of the pillars of Judaism: “The world stands on three things: on Torah, worship, and loving deeds of kindness” (Pirke Avot: Ethics of the Fathers 1:2).

As they learn the letters and enjoy the honey, it is an object lesson to teach them that the study of Torah is sweet, which we read in Psalm 119:103: “How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
