A new bike trail will allow bicyclists to ride across the Jewish state. The first 30 kilometers [18 miles] was opened during the holiday of Sukkot [Feast of Tabernacles].

The Bible – Road Map to Israel’s Oil

December 3, 2006

September 10, 2006

For thousands of years, the Land of Israel has flowed with milk and honey, but now it is official: Israeli cows are the biggest producers in the world. How now, proud cow? But sheep and goats can take a bow as well.

Cow’s milk comprised the bulk of production at 94% of the total volume. Sheep produced 3.6%, with goat’s milk at the lowest percentage of volume, 2.3%.

Kanafim – wings of protection

September 10, 2006

“How priceless is Your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of Your wings.” Psalm 36:7.

We hear about the “arm of the Lord,” and we pray that “His face will shine upon us.” We should understand that Israelites were not imagining that God literally had a physical body, but because the Hebrew language does not contain many abstractions, they were using physical imagery to express ideas about God’s nature.
