Keren Hannah May 16, 2022 Psalms Psalms/Prayers

Artwork -  Israeli artist Baruch Nachshon  Since the time of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, the Psalms have been an inspiration and a source of delight and comfort, as well as a spiritual challenge, to all who read them. The great central subjects of the Book of Psalms are God, Man, Sin and Revelation. All, however, are centred on the praises of God in His transcendence as well as His imminence. The Almighty who is seated in glorious radiance upon His heavenly throne and surrounded by angelic hosts who constantly worship and sing, "Holy, Holy, Holy!", is the God who

CELEBRATE ISRAEL - 5th MAY, 2022 / 4th Iyar 5782 Historic Land of Connection  Israel, although small geographically, is a land huge in historic significance. Biblical history revolves around it. The Bible, however, is not only a history book; it was primarily given by God to teach us about Himself and how we best should live as His children. This indicates that, in the view of the God of Israel, our very lives as His people are somehow connected with His Land – this little land of Israel.  Situated as it is on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean

This is the second of the five steps that are at the heart of this journey. They are essential practices that make it possible for us toreplace unnecessary effort with ease, clutter with clarity, irritating drama with inspirational dreams. Hopefully, after Nissan, we now are more aware of slowing down.

The Omer? – Counting Up to Revelation

Keren Hannah April 19, 2022 Counting the Omer

COUNTING UP TO REVELATION Teach us to number/count our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12 Counting the fifty days from the second day of Passover to the Jubilee day of Pentecost, or Shavuot, is called Sefirat Ha’Omer – Counting the Omer. Two questions immediately spring to mind: “What is the Omer?” and “Why should we count it?” The Hebrew word omer literally means ‘measure.’ Biblically, it is associated with the offering of the first sheaf of the barley harvest in the Temple on the sixteenth day of Nissan, which is the second day of

HASHEM - YHVH In His Name His Name - His signature as an artist, as Creator of all, can be found in everything He has created. His Name is there if you look intentionally and have eyes to see. As His children, as human beings, we carry His name in a very important and special way. YHVH - Yod - Hei - Vav - Hei    We  physically carry the shapes of the Hebrew letters of His Holy Name. The yod neatly fits your head. Your arms fit the shape of the  hei. The elongated vav represents your spine. And the final

Keren Hannah April 18, 2022 All the Rest

AV, in general, is a paradoxical month. It begins with nine days of semi-mourning that conclude with the solemn fast day of Tisha B'Av (9th of Av). During this time we recall the destruction of the Holy Temples in Jerusalem, the occupation by foreign powers, and the exile of the majority of the Jewish people from the Land given them by God. Thereafter, the mood changes. We read the words of consolation given by the prophet Isaiah and remember the promises of God for the redemption and return of His people to restore and rebuild His Land. We, indeed, rejoice as

WONDERS BY MY WAYSIDE # 11                by Debra Elfassy The Israeli folk saying: "The White Squill blooms and the summer ends" perfectly describes the arrival of this messenger announcing that Autumn is on our doorstep. The White Squill, Chatzav in Hebrew, appears without warning. One day there's no sign of it and the next it showcases its full glory. Their appearance provides a welcome sight for eyes weary of the monotony of a landscape mercilessly burnt to a crisp by the blistering heat of a long summer. Its fluorescent stalk shoots up to a

  Gluten Free Chocolate Cake  Recipe ~ Robbie Mason I used this chocolate cake recipe for the first time when a young friend of ours, who was volunteering in Jerusalem, came to our home for an Erev Shabbat meal together with her mother and sister.  I try to remember to ask, when we have visitors for the first time, if they have any food allergies or aversions. It turned out that our friend's mum is gluten intolerant, so I went searching for a yummy dessert. Since I am a dark choco-holic I found this recipe and adapted it a bit to
