Should America Embrace Israel's School Safety Model?

February 23, 2018

Last Wednesday’s Florida school massacre touched the Jewish community when a mentally unstable former student stepped onto the campus at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and killed 17 students and faculty, including five Jewish victims – four students and the teacher/coach who threw himself into the line of fire to save others. America's national grief soon devolved into finger pointing.

Who are the “Lost Tribes of Israel”?

February 12, 2018

One of the great mysteries of world history is the subject of the “Lost Tribes of Israel.” The disappearance from recorded history of roughly 80 percent of the Jewish population of ancient Israel – in 722 BC – has captivated biblical scholars, historians, rabbis and Christians for centuries. What happened, where did they go – and is there anyone left in the world who can trace their genealogy to these people who seem to have vanished? How did the “Lost Tribes of Israel” become lost? Af...

Stand with us in prayer against the latest anti-Israel U.N. report

February 09, 2018

The United States renewed its charge late last week that the United Nation harbors a deep anti-Israel bias, Time Magazine reports. The accusation comes in response to release of a long-anticipated U.N. human rights office report that says 206 companies – mostly Israeli and American – are on its “blacklist” for doing business in Israel’s West Bank settlements, which it considers illegal under international law. The document doesn’t actually include the names of those companies. The U.N. ...

Celebrate Israel With Us!

February 08, 2018

I am thousands of years old. I have heard the bleating of goats as they were prepared to atone for sin. I heard the High Priest’s prayers on behalf of Israel. I heard a couple’s soft footfalls as they carried a baby up the Temple steps – and the wonder in Simeon’s voice as he received the infant Yeshua (Jesus) in his arms.

Immerse in the Jordan River

January 10, 2018

Here, centuries ago, John the Immerser prepared the way for Yeshua (Jesus). Here, he cried out for people to “Turn! Turn to God and be immersed!” With great anticipation, the crowds listened to John tell of One coming whose sandals he was not worthy to untie. And then, one day, the earth along the Jordan River bowed in honor as it bore the feet of the approaching Messiah. The Jordan’s gentle waters received The Holy One of Israel in immersion and saw the Spirit come down from heaven ...

Drama in the U.N. as U.S. vetoes resolution on Jerusalem

December 29, 2017

The drama surrounding the United States’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital continues. In a show of solidarity with Israel, the United States blocked a U.N. Security Council resolution early last week that would have overruled President Trump’s decision. The 14 other member nations supported the resolution, underscoring America’s lone stand on the controversy. U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley said she cast the veto “in defense of American sovereignty and in defense of America’s rol...

U.S. recognition of Jerusalem may encourage Middle East peace

December 22, 2017

Despite the chorus of criticism, some Middle East experts are saying the United States’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital may actually help promote the peace process. Several respected analysts spoke out saying that, while many have called it a blunder, President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem is instead a shrewd correction in American foreign policy. It has not hurt prospects for peace and is more likely to help, they say. The Times of Israel collected and published th...
