HOLY THINGS? 4.10 mins

My Little Place In Jerusalem 5Holy Things – 4.10 minutes

 

The opposite of ‘holy’ is not ‘wicked.’ The six regular days of the week, as opposed to Shabbat are not ‘bad’ but are regarded as ‘ordinary’ in contrast to the one that was chosen and set apart by God for His purposes.

When the sacred things of God are scorned this, not surprisingly, carries over and results in the belittling and mocking of other people.

My Little Place In Jerusalem 5To Love And Be Loved – 3.20 minutes

 

At the very heart of life, at the central core of God’s plan of Creation, is the action of loving and of being loved.

The more intimately one knows the other, the deeper and greater the blessings, and the heartaches, become.

Holiness of Time – 5.15 minutes

 

We are defined by who we are and not by the material things we have.

Become attuned to the holiness in time.

To light the Sabbath candles is our way of creating light; and of remembering that He is the Source of Light and that in His light we see light.

What Is Holiness? – 4.45 minutes  

 

God – HaKadosh Baruch Hu, The Holy, Blessed be He, is the Source of holiness.
We can partake of His holiness in relationship with Him, and as we participate with Him in holy actions that are in accord with His will.

WELCOME to My Little Place in Jerusalem

WELCOME – to My Little Place in Jerusalem

Jerusalem has been called many things – the Center of the Universe, the joy of the whole earth, the connection between Heaven and Earth, the Holy City, the City of the Great King. All these are true and are only the tip of the iceberg of all that she truly is. Another well-known attribute, spoken by the prophet Isaiah, is that: “… out of Zion shall go the Torah, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem” (2:3).

He calls, He places and He gives voice.  So, from my little place in Jerusalem, I offer my small voice in His praise and le’ma’an Shmo, be’ahavah – for the sake of His Name, in love.

We come to you, Jerusalem, to build your ruins.

To mend our souls and to seek comfort for God and men.

We, a people of orphans, have entered her walls to greet the widow, Jerusalem, and the widow has become a bride again.

Spiritually, I am a native of Jerusalem. I have prayed here all my life.

My hopes have their home in these hills.
