Had a Good Time

Tonight we had a good time at our study center.  Had a good message from Baruch and plenty of food and fellowship afterward.  There were several visitors, too.  We hope everyone is enjoying the holiday.

Hanukkah begins tonight!

Today I took our “Hanukkah Box” down from the closet to see what we were missing.  I should restock it after Hanukkah each year, but somehow that doesn’t always happen.  I found the dreidel game shown below.    

Many people do not realize that Hanukkah is mentioned in the New Testament and not in the T’nach.  John 10:22 states, “And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.”  The word ‘dedication’ in Hebrew is ‘Hanukkah’.

Welcome!

I am very excited to be able to connect with you on a regular basis.  My plan is to post information leading up to each Biblical Holiday, post the weekly Parasha commentary and give the video link for the week, as well as post about what is going on here in Israel today.  Sometimes it will be about a city or neighborhood, maybe even a particular cafe; but the intent is to help you feel more connected to Israel and what is going on here.  Shalom!
