Terrorist Attacks Have Doubled in Israel

February 07, 2014

In a move that highlights the growing frequency and severity of terror attacks, the State Department this week issued an advisory warning to US citizens who live in or plan to visit Israel.

Together We Can Stop Them!

February 07, 2014

When I first heard the story I’m about to share with you, I thought it simply couldn’t be true. It is so outrageous and inexcusable, that I didn’t want to believe it. Yet after I investigated, I found it’s even worse than I was originally told. That’s why I feel you need to know about it. As you read these words, some of the most precious historical treasures of the Jewish People are about to be handed over by the United States to bitter enemies of Israel — to the very nation that stole them...

Yeshua Out of the Box - For Israel then...and us now

January 28, 2014

The Pharisees in Israel were always trying to fit Yeshua (Jesus) into the box of their expectations. Luke 6-11 tells us two stories in a row where they questioned and judged Him because of His actions on Shabbat (the Sabbath). Yeshua knew that the purpose of Shabbat was not to restrain or restrict, but to create a specific space of time each week that would act as a vessel, and ultimately an overflowing container, for an experience of God's rest and goodness. Much to the dismay and fru...

January 23, 2014

A new study released yesterday by the Taub Center for Social Policy Studies revealed that Israel's elderly population suffers from the highest poverty rate of any nation in the developed world.
