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.

This is a selection of short MP3 teachings for your enjoyment and edification.
The MP3s are of varying lengths and content. They are downloadable to your listening devices or can be enjoyed on the website. So, pour a coffee, or cuppa tea, relax, listen, and join me in exploring and considering concepts from His amazing Torah (teachings), coming to you from the heart of Jerusalem.
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.
~ Abraham Joshua Heschel
How I would love to be able to travel to Israel and have a Ladies Tour with you as guide and teacher! Just an intimate tour, almost like a slumber party where we sit around with our Bibles and discuss passages pertaining to places we visited during the day, maybe current family/personal problems similar to women of Scripture, ministering to each other as only women can. In my dreams as they say. Blessings on you dear Keren.
Ginny…that truly sounds like a wonderful idea! I would love to do that too. Let’s pray and trust for it to happen – maybe, with His help, next Spring – April/May? Would you be able to get away for 10 days to two weeks? If we can find 10 or so women who would be interested it could work! Let’s keep in touch in this regard. Many blessings in return.
That sounds like a lovely idea Keren (and Virginia) – keep me posted as plans progress!
Will do, Susan!
Well, dear ladies, the dream of five years ago did not materialize and now the skies are closed to travel due to the CoVid 19 virus. However, let’s not give up. It’s good to have a dream!
