The ancient city of Hebron, said to be the burial site of the prophet Abraham, is the second holiest site in the Jewish world, the fourth holiest site in the Muslim world, and currently the largest Palestinian city in the Occupied West Bank. Besieged by the violence of Israeli occupation and economic turmoil, Hebron has become a pressure cooker of settler aggression and Palestinian resistance—and the human toll has been immense. In this important segment of The Marc Steiner Show, we get an on-the-ground view of the daily reality of Israeli occupation and apartheid from Basil al-Adraa and Oriel Eisner, who say that the violence in Hebron has gotten demonstrably worse over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. Basil al-Adraa is an activist, journalist, and photographer from the village of a-Tuwani in the South Hebron Hills; Oriel Eisner, who currently lives in Jerusalem, is an American-Israeli activist and organizer with the Center for Jewish Nonviolence.Tune in for new episodes of The Marc Steiner Show every Tuesday on TRNN.Pre-Production/Studio/Post Production: Stephen FrankHelp us continue producing The Marc Steiner Show by following us and becoming a monthly sustainer:Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-pod-mssSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/nl-pod-stGet The Marc Steiner Show updates: https://therealnews.com/up-pod-stLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews

It is supernatural Friday and on today's Podcast we share a story of a Jewish man looking for the purpose of life and has an open vision of Jesus and comes to faith. We then release an anointing for us to go into the Harvest field to see more like him come in.
Join us on a journey of discovery into the heart some of Israel's best kept gems of history! Our guest this week, Shakked Beery AKA The Wandering Jewess, spent this episode of the show as our expert tour guide as together we explored some of Israel's most fascinating and least-known secret places – the ones most visitors to the country never get to see. Native to Israel for ten generations, Shakked's family arrived at the land more than 200 years ago and took an active part in reconstructing the Jewish homeland. Following her family's heritage, she combines her love for the land with her passion for storytelling. She is a third-generation tour guide. While guiding people from all over the world, she experienced firsthand the negative views people hold against Israel, and how different they are from reality. Her mission became to deliver Israel to people “as is”, challenges and beauty combined, driven by a strong faith that only truth can bring peace. To better pursue her goal, she earned a Masters in Israel Studies from Haifa University, and a teaching certification from Oxford, specializing in Critical Antisemitism and the Delegitimization of Israel. Today, Shakked is an international speaker, dividing her time between guiding in Israel and speaking around the world, telling stories about the Israel she loves. The halt of incoming tourism caused by the pandemic gave Shakked the time to write her first book: "SECRET ISRAEL – The Israel Most Visitors Miss". After guiding for ten years she seized the opportunity to finally tell the stories of the places she loves most. In the book, she reveals the incredible stories behind ten secret gems most tourists never get to visit.

Friday, 22 October 2021 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. Acts 2:1 With the selection of Matthias noted at the end of Chapter 1, the account immediately turns to the fulfillment of the Feast of the Lord recorded in Leviticus 23:15-22. This is directly referenced by Luke, saying, “When the Day of Pentecost had fully come.” The word translated as “fully come” signifies “to be completed.” The name Pentecost means “fiftieth.” It is the fiftieth day of a particular cycle that was celebrated every year during the time of the law. It is a typological anticipation of an event that occurs at a set time after the crucifixion and resurrection of the Lord. Of this time, Vincent's Word Studies rightly states – “The day, according to the Hebrew mode, is conceived as a measure to be filled up. So long as the day had not yet arrived, the measure was not full. The words denote in process of fulfilment.” Arriving at this fiftieth day, one comes to the pilgrim feast known as Shavuoth in Hebrew and Pentecost in Greek. Each of the Leviticus 23 Feasts of the Lord anticipates the work of Jesus Christ during His first advent or the state/conduct of the believer's lives because of His completed work. The word “feast” is, unfortunately, often used to translate two different Hebrew words. The first is moed, meaning and appointed time. The second is khagag, signifying a pilgrimage/pilgrim feast. There are eight of the “appointed times” listed in Leviticus 23, three of those are “pilgrim feasts.” Pentecost is the fifth of the recorded “appointed times,” and it is the second “pilgrim feast.” The difference is important to understand because the “appointed times” point to something directly accomplished by the Lord in the redemptive process. The “pilgrim feasts” point to the life of believers in Christ as a result of the work of the Lord. The important point of these appointed times is that they all pertain to every believer in Christ – Jew and Gentile alike. Because of what happens at Pentecost in Acts 2 is seemingly directed only to the Jews, the heretics who hold to hyperdispensationalism claim that what occurred only applies to them. This is incorrect. What occurred at Pentecost in the year of Christ's completed work happened to the Jew first, but it pertains to any person in Christ since then, even to this day. This is true with all of the appointed times seen in Leviticus 23. The instruction for celebrating Shavuoth/Pentecost states – “And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering: seven Sabbaths shall be completed. 16 Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall offer a new grain offering to the Lord. 17 You shall bring from your dwellings two wave loaves of two-tenths of an ephah. They shall be of fine flour; they shall be baked with leaven. They are the firstfruits to the Lord. 18 And you shall offer with the bread seven lambs of the first year, without blemish, one young bull, and two rams. They shall be as a burnt offering to the Lord, with their grain offering and their drink offerings, an offering made by fire for a sweet aroma to the Lord. 19 Then you shall sacrifice one kid of the goats as a sin offering, and two male lambs of the first year as a sacrifice of a peace offering. 20 The priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits as a wave offering before the Lord, with the two lambs. They shall be holy to the Lord for the priest. 21 And you shall proclaim on the same day that it is a holy convocation to you. You shall do no customary work on it. It shall be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations. 22 ‘When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field when you reap, nor shall you gather any gleaning from your harvest. You shall leave them for the poor and for the stranger: I am the Lord your God.” Leviticus 23:15-22 To understand what is being pictured and how it points to both the completed work of the Lord and believer's lives in Christ, the Feast of the Lord series from Leviticus 23 – as presented by the Superior Word – can be read or viewed online. Though the New Covenant was established in Christ's blood almost two months prior to Pentecost, the true beginning of the church occurred at this time. That it pertains to both Jew and Gentile is typologically seen in the two loaves of bread baked with leaven that are presented to the Lord. That it encompasses the entire time of the church age, and even contains provision for those of the tribulation period is seen in not reaping the corners of the field. The reason the account records only Jews at this time is because this was an annual pilgrim feast of the Jews. Of these pilgrim feasts, it is recorded – “Three times a year all your males shall appear before the Lord your God in the place which He chooses: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Tabernacles; and they shall not appear before the Lord empty-handed. 17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you.” Deuteronomy 16:16, 17 That the males are specifically noted does not mean women were not included. Elsewhere, it notes that all in the household were to attend. This means wives, children, and so on. The typology was given to Israel; the fulfillment of the typology pertains to all believers. To deny this fundamental truth of the “appointed times” is to deny that the process of salvation as accomplished by Jesus Christ pertains to all people – Jew and Gentile, male and female, slave and free. For the time being, it is noted that the believers are together at Pentecost (Hebrew: Shavuoth) and “they were all with one accord in one place.” The believers were all together in Jerusalem as required by the law of the feast. This would have been at the temple area, in the presence of the Lord. This is stated in Deuteronomy 16:16 (above). It is at this place, amid all of the people of Israel, that the events to be described will take place. Life application: As noted, there are eight “appointed times” of the Lord recorded in Leviticus 23. Three of them are “pilgrim feasts.” A very brief description of these is listed here – 1) Shabbath (Sabbath). This is fulfilled by the Lord as is recorded in Hebrews 4:3 (and elsewhere) saying, “For we who have believed do enter that rest.” 2) Pesach (Passover). 1 Corinthians 5:7, “Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.” 3) Matsoth (Unleavened Bread; a pilgrim feast). 1 Corinthians 5:8, “Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” 4) Bikurim (Firstfruits).1 Corinthians 15:20, “But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.” 5) Shavuoth (Pentecost/the Feast of Weeks; a pilgrim feast). Ephesians 1:13 (and elsewhere) “In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.” Weeks, or Pentecost, is shown to be fulfilled in Romans 16:5 and 1 Corinthians 16:15 – “Greet my beloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia to Christ.” “I urge you, brethren—you know the household of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia...” The presentation of the two loaves is what those verses are speaking of – one a Jew, one a Gentile, and thus one gospel message. 6) Yom Teruah (The Day of Acclamation). 1 Corinthians 15:47, “The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven.” 7) Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement) Romans 3:24, 25, “...being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood.” 8) Sukkoth (Tabernacles; a pilgrim feast). 2 Corinthians 5:7, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” All eight appointed times of the Lord are fulfilled by the Lord Jesus and/or are being lived out by His people because of His accomplished work. Each pertains to both Jew and Gentile that is based on the one and only gospel. Note: They are not “Jewish” feasts, nor are they “Feasts of Israel.” They are Feasts of the Lord. They pertain to the one, and only one Church which is the Body of Christ – Jew and Gentile. One gospel. In understanding the typology from the Old Testament, many heresies found in the church today can be avoided. Seventh Day Adventism (mandatory Sabbath observance); Hebrew Roots Movement (observance of the feasts of the Lord, dietary restrictions, and so on are mandatory); hyperdispensationalism (there are two gospels – one to the Jew and one to the Gentile); and so on. Each of these heresies comes about based on a failure to understand the typology from the Old Testament, its fulfillment in the New, and/or the scope of the fulfillment among the people who have come to Christ. Another heresy which is constantly put forth within the church is that only the “Spring” feasts have been fulfilled and the “Fall” feasts picture something coming at the end of the church age. This is heresy because if these feasts are not fulfilled, then Christ did not fulfill the law (because these are a part of the Law of Moses). If He did not fulfill the law, then He is not the Messiah. By understanding the typology and the scope of what occurs, the heresies stated here (and others as well) are clearly identified. Beware of these false teachings and those who espouse them. They will be held accountable for their failure to give God the glory through what Jesus Christ has accomplished for His people. There is one gospel based on the completed work of Jesus Christ our Lord. Hallelujah for JESUS! Lord God, thank You for the surety we possess because of Christ's fulfillment of the types and shadows of the Old Covenant which only pointed to His more perfect work. Thank You that we can participate in what those things only anticipated. Thank You for Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
When Elie Wiesel was fifteen years old, the Nazis murdered his mother and sister and enslaved him and his father in Buchenwald. After the U.S. Army liberated the camp in April 1945, Wiesel went to France, where he studied the humanities and worked as a writer, and then to New York, where he became a professor and an activist for human rights. Wiesel, who died in July 2016, wrote some 60 books, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986, and was counselor to presidents, senators, kings, and prime ministers. Recently, he and his family were honored by the installation of a sculpture of his likeness in the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. The manner of this honoring introduces some particularly vexing Jewish questions, which his son Elisha discussed in a recent Washington Post op-ed. Elie Wiesel was a moral hero, and a particularly Jewish one. His family worried that his memorialization in a church would emphasize the universalist elements of his legacy, and discard particular Jewish elements of his moral persona—including his Jewish observance and his Zionist commitments. Elisha joins Mosaic's editor Jonathan Silver to think about these questions, his father's legacy, and more on this week's podcast. Musical selections in this podcast are drawn from the Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, op. 31a, composed by Paul Ben-Haim and performed by the ARC Ensemble.
Is religious environmentalism new-age, post-modern and, essentially, incompatible with traditional Judaism? Or is it, rather, retro, a return to Biblical ideals, a re-wedding of the earth on which we live and the religion we all strive to observe on that land? In this biweekly course, we will do a close reading of central texts within Rav Kook's own introduction of his seminal work שבת הארץ/Shabbat Ha'aretz, the very translation of which title will be an early focus of our study! Rav Kook (Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook, 1865-1935) was the first Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of the Jewish community of pre-state Palestine. He was a mystic, scholar and communal leader who had the temperament and interest in straddling the two modern Jewish communities growing in the land of Israel: the piously observant Jew and the new secular “Israeli.” His words continue to confound, illuminate and inspire us nearly 100 years after his death, and he has much to teach us about our relationship to this one, precious world that is our home. The class is part of the Green Team initiative at Temple Beth Am Los Angeles. For more information go to https://www.tbala.org/get-involved/green-team. The class was conducted via Facebook and Zoom on October 21, 2021.
Have you ever wondered why we celebrate the Sabbath on Sunday? Have you asked yourself, what does Jesus mean when he says, “Think not that I have come to abolish the law and the prophets; I have come not to abolish them but to fulfil them." (Mt 5:17) And why does this new covenant change the Sabbath? "...This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood." (Lk. 22:20) Today, Fr. Mike delves into the scriptural roots of the Sabbath and why we as Catholics celebrate it on Sunday and not Saturday as the Jewish people still do today.
Hi this is Steve and welcome back to another segment of Press On.This is called KnotsI started thinking about Christmas and while the weather is still tolerable putting some lights in our Holley Tree. Thinking about it-sparked a memory of a few years back when decorating that same tree…I pulled out the lights to find them all tangled up… After spending what seemed like an hour untangling them I finally had enough…a nearby pair of garden shears completed the task. On the ground lay the carnage of a string of lights cut into 30 pieces.Truth is one of the things I can't stand is knots…things becoming entangled. Ever heard the saying "I feel like I'm all tangle in knots."That includes life and things like faith. Historically humans have done a great job making that which was meant to be simple…complex.For example the Jewish faith, the Torah contained 10 commandments given by God himself. Later 603 additional commandments were added by religious leaders for a total of 613. In time additional commandments were added to clarify the 613. Today there's over a thousand of them.When Jesus came along one of the things that I marvel at is how he began to untangle knots. First he confronted the religious leaders for making believing in God complicated and hard. He said things like my yoke is easy and my burden is light”Found in Matthew 11 He was talking about the heavy burden of the system of works that the Pharisees laid on the backs of the people that Jesus was offering to relieve. Secondly he began to untangle peoples lives one by one whether it was a women at a well whose life was tangled in knots by multiple failed marriages he offed her a living water that would quench the thirst of her soul or man was crippled who had laid on a mat for 38 years trying to get in a pool that he thought would heal him He said to you want to get well…Jesus untangled his knots.Theres much more to this story but for today think about this: Are you all tangled up in knots? Do you want to get untangled Then recall the word Jesus “come to meal who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest." He is the great "untangler" ….maybe its time you ask him to untangle you This is Steve and until we meet get again Press On. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Parashat Vayera opens with the iconic scene of Avraham waiting for guests at the entrance of his tent, in the heat of the day. This scene becomes the model for welcoming guests, which is a key value in Jewish life. In this episode we consider this story with a more critical lens, and discuss how we can take the lessons from it to adapt how we view hosting in a post-covid era.
Establishing a business partnership with a non-Jew poses several complex Halachic issues. One might think that having a non-Jewish partner solves the problem of opening a business on Shabbat. However, on the contrary, it can create more problems than the other permitted arrangements. For example, if one contracts a non-Jew to perform a task on a per-job basis, the employee is not considered the agent of the Jew. The Jew did not require that the employee work on Shabbat, and if he chooses to do so, the Jew does not receive any benefit.This is not the case with regard to partnership. If, for example, a Jew is a fifty-fifty working partner with a non-Jew, both parties are obligated to operate the business. The partners are likely to agree to an exchange of shifts, in which the non-Jew would work on Shabbat instead of the Jew, in return for the Jew working on another day instead of the non-Jew. Such an arrangement is prohibited because, essentially, the Jew has deemed the non-Jew his agent to run the business on Shabbat in his stead.The Shulhan Aruch (Siman 245) rules that the easiest way to solve this problem is by signing a written, legally binding contract before establishing the partnership. The contract would stipulate that all profit earned on Shabbat belongs to the non-Jew and all the profit earned on another specific day of the week belongs to the Jew. The rest of the week they are equal partners. Accordingly, when the partnership was established, Shabbat was never a factor, since, essentially, the business does not belong to the Jew on Shabbat.If the partners did not create such an arrangement, the profit earned on Shabbat is forbidden to the Jew. This is the Halacha even if the partnership was not fifty-fifty.SUMMARYIt is permitted to make a legally-binding condition with a non-Jew, before establishing a business partnership, to give him the profit of Shabbat in return for the profit of a different day.If such an arrangement was not made before establishing the partnership, the Jew is prohibited from benefiting from the profit off Shabbat.
Welcome to The Times of Israel's Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what's happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday. Startup Israel editor Ricky Ben-David and science and health correspondent Nathan Jeffay join the podcast today, hosted by Jessica Steinberg. Jeffay discusses results of two new studies, including one which found that almost one in three ultra-Orthodox Israelis has been infected with the coronavirus, showing that the large, tight-knit communities and close family quarters were some of the factors that brought about the high number of cases. Ben-David takes a look at the agreement signed between Israel and the United Arab Emirates to collaborate on a number of space projects, including the Beresheet 2 space mission to the moon. Both countries have significant research and experience to contribute to the projects, said Ben-David. Jeffay speaks about the advanced 3D technology used to successfully reconstruct the jaw of an IDF soldier who was shot in the face, and Ben-David talks about the new, foldable cars created by an Israeli automotive company that will allow for squeezing into tight spots in busy cities like Tel Aviv. Discussed articles include: 1 in 3 Haredim caught coronavirus, double the national average – study Large Israeli study finds Pfizer COVID shot keeps teens safe from Delta strain New Israel-UAE agreement to promote innovation-based business ties Israel, UAE to launch joint space projects, including Beresheet 2 Moon mission After IDF soldier takes bullet to face, doctors rebuild his jaw in high-tech op Israeli ‘foldable' electric cars to make debut as emergency response vehicles Subscribe to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing on iTunes, Spotify, PlayerFM, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Episode description: Lucie Waldman is the author of The Jots of Becoming, a book that features insights about recovering from anorexia and includes multiple Jewish excerpts. Lucie also runs an eating disorder recovery awareness and support account on Instagram, enjoys speaking for multiple platforms about the intersection between Judaism and mental health, and is deeply passionate about mental health, eating disorder recovery, and equity in the treatment setting. In this episode of Peace Meal, Lucie discusses how Jewish culture and religion should be considered in eating disorder treatment, how sharing your recovery story can be beneficial, and how small steps in recovery add up to a longer and stronger recovery. Reflecting on her own experience, Lucie shares that she had trouble finding recovery content that resonated with her, so she decided to turn her story into such a resource for others. Among the messages she wanted to share is that not everyone has a “magic moment” where they feel ready to start eating disorder treatment. What's more important, she says, is being willing to take small steps toward recovery. Lucie also examines the complex relationship between Judaism and her eating disorder recovery, underscoring the need to take into account intergenerational trauma and other cultural considerations during treatment. She concludes the episode by telling anyone struggling that every time they defy their eating disorder, it adds up to a longer and stronger recovery. We cover: Unhelpful messages to hear in recovery Why refraining from mentioning numbers in eating disorder recovery resources is much better for those in recovery who are consuming the content The importance of considering religion and culture in eating disorder treatment How sharing your eating disorder story can be healing and help others heal Advice to anyone suffering with an eating disorder who thinks that recovery is not possible for them In Lucie's words: On feeling “ready” to start eating disorder treatment: “Having willingness to start recovery is sometimes more important than readiness.” On the importance of personalized eating disorder treatment: “Some of the traditional approaches to family therapy are not as relevant to Jewish clients. There is sort of this aspect of, ‘Oh if a family member is not good for you, you should just cut them out.' But for me, I never resonated with that because the family unit is something that's so highly valued.” On the process of recovery: “It might not happen tomorrow or next week, but all the small steps you're doing towards recovery are adding up. Every meal, every snack, every time you defy the eating disorder once, is adding up to a longer and stronger recovery. It's a long road, but eventually, through all the work, it does pay off.” Follow Lucie Waldman on Instagram (@living.as.lucie).

In general, the Halacha permits engaging a non-Jew in a task, as long as it was not stipulated that the work be performed specifically on Shabbat and the payment was a fixed price. This is the basis for permitting sending of mail or submitting clothes to the cleaners on Friday. Even though the non-Jew may do the task on Shabbat, it is considered as though he is working for himself. It was his choice to do so for his own convenience. As far as the Jew is concerned, the task could have been performed after Shabbat.However, sending express mail on Friday poses a serious Halachic problem. Since it "absolutely positively has to get there overnight," it is tantamount to the Jew directly instructing the non-Jew to work on Shabbat. There is no way for the letter to arrive at the specified time without non-Jews transporting it on Shabbat at the behest of the Jew.The Shevut Yaakov, in his responsa, discusses a possible leniency to send express mail over Shabbat. He bases his approach on a famous dispute between Rabeinu Gershon and the Havot Yair as to whether Amira L'Amira is permissible on Shabbat. That is, is a Jew allowed to instruct a non-Jew to instruct another non-Jew to perform melacha on Shabbat? While telling a non-Jew to work is certainly prohibited, does the addition of an intermediary render it permissible? According to the Havot Yair (siman 49), Amira L'Amira is permitted for the sake of a misva or in the event of monetary loss. Therefore, if one submits an envelope to a non-Jewish employee or postal clerk who then gives it to the non-Jewish mail carrier, e.g. Staples or a mailbox company gserving as agents to give the letter to UPS, this would constitute Amira L'Amira. Such a case would be permitted for the sake of misva or other urgent need.However, one should be careful not to pre-label the package himself with the address and delivery instructions. This may constitute a directive from the Jew directly to all of the non-Jews engaged in the delivery.This approach is adopted by the Shemirat Shabbat K'hilchata (Ch. 31), Rav Pinhassi in his work V'Daber Davar and Hacham David in his work on Amira L'Akum.SUMMARYIt is permitted to send express mail over Shabbat only for the sake of misva or urgent need, as long as the Jew does not pre-label the package with delivery instructions.
One of the tools which Hashem has given us to help us get through difficult times is being able to hear chizuk from other people. Additionally, working on one's emunah can help immensely. If someone combines emunah with getting chizuk from others, he'll be in a much better position. There are, baruch Hashem, many families who learn emunah together on a daily basis and when an issue arises in their home, they all help each other. Since they are all trained in the principles of emunah, they're able to give each other chizuk. I received an email from one such family and the way they helped each other was truly inspiring. The father of the household, Moshe became observant some years back and as a talented software engineer, he was fortunate enough to work at companies that were accommodating to his keeping Shabbat, kashrut, and holidays. In 2017, Moshe was hired to work at a new company alongside a great team. His manager, who was a gentile, told Moshe that he had worked with orthodox Jews in the past and had a very positive experience with them. He was extremely accommodating in Moshe's taking off on all the holidays as well as any other religious needs that he had. Over the last couple of years, however, this company went through a series of mergers and acquisitions and grew from having only 150 employees to having almost 20,000 employees. In early 2021, Moshe's manager had been demoted and transferred to a new department. A new manager came in his place and this manager was a tyrant, adding additional work to the employees with unrealistic deadlines and expectations. And constantly berating and embarrassing them. When Moshe took off for Pesach he was accused of being an unreliable employee. The working conditions became so miserable, Moshe went home each day from work depressed. He walked with a slouch, looked sad all the time and dreaded the start of each week, having to deal with that toxic work environment. Moshe's wife encouraged him to update his resume and look for a new job. However, being a quiet and shy person with three children to support, Moshe did not feel comfortable with that idea. Moshe's wife began to pray to Hashem to give her husband a job where he would be happy and fulfilled and where he would not be afraid to be a religious Jew. This past Sukkot, Moshe made a request to be off for the holiday. After a back and forth with his manager, which resulted in other issues being brought up, Moshe was laid off effective immediately. Moshe's wife told him, “It's a beracha , Hashem knows you better than you know yourself and He pulled you out of this terrible place.” Although they were certainly concerned about how they would pay their bills, including their children's tuition, they both had a calming feeling, knowing that Hashem was doing the best for them. They were able to go into the holiday with true joy and on Simchat Torah Moshe danced like never before, rejoiced like never before and prayed like never before. After the holiday, Moshe and his wife shared this news with their three sons and decided that together, as a family, they would sit down each night and say Tehillim. After Tehillim, they would go around in a circle and make requests from Hashem out loud. The children would say things like, “Hashem, please let our father find a job where he doesn't need to feel uncomfortable being religious.” The family would remind each other at those sittings that Hashem could bring salvation in an instant and, when the time was right, He would. They gave each other chizuk in emunah and they all agreed to spend less money until Moshe found a new job. The family bonded together in a way that could not have been accomplished without that difficulty. On Thursday evening of parashat Noach, Moshe's family was sitting in their daily Tehillim circle and one of the teenage sons said, “Hashem, please let Abba find a job tomorrow.” The mother interrupted him by saying, “I'm sure Hashem will bring the salvation at the right time, but it might not necessarily be tomorrow, although it would be so great to go into Shabbat with good news.” The boy said, “Okay, I hope Hashem brings salvation tomorrow, but maybe Monday.” The next day, Moshe received a call from one of the companies he interviewed with, telling him, “We are excited to extend you a verbal employment offer today and we will be sending you a formal, written one on Monday.” Then the person added, “Oh, and by the way, we have other orthodox Jewish employees here, so please don't worry about taking time off for your holidays.” Moshe and his family were ecstatic. They helped each other through that difficult time and celebrated the yeshua as a family, witnessing their exact prayers being answered. Emunah is great and chizuk is great. When we train our families in both, it will enhance our lives in so many ways.

Welcome to The Times of Israel's Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what's happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday. Today's guests are senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and political reporter Tal Schneider, with Raoul Wootliff hosting. On today's show, we look at the physical fight that took place yesterday between Religious Zionism MK Itamar Ben Gvir and Joint List chair Ayman Odeh, and ask what it says about Israeli politics today. And, following 26th-anniversary memorials for slain prime minister Yitzhak Rabin this week, we assess the ongoing battle over the lessons to be learned from the 1995 assassination of Israel's premier: how former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is still trying to challenge the stain of being part of the climate of hostility toward Rabin; Foreign Minister Yair Lapid's bitter speech over the "heirs" of Rabin's murderers; and the Rabin family celebrating Netanyahu's fall. Discussed articles include: Far-right and Arab MKs scuffle during visit to hunger-striking terror suspect Law for one and one for brawl: What the press is saying about Knesset tussles Lapid: Rabin assassin's ‘ideological heirs' are serving in Knesset today Shaked slams coalition partners after Rabin memorial: ‘Stop the wild incitement' At memorials, Rabin family hails gov't that toppled Netanyahu: ‘The people won' Netanyahu to skip official ceremony marking 26 years since Rabin assassination Subscribe to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing on iTunes, Spotify, PlayerFM, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

But still I think learning Torah with our kids can be really really special.'”8:50 The challenges of learning Torah with children“So much of the time, we feel like we're in the role of disciplinarian and we don't want Torah to feel that way… It's just something we really love doing that we wanna do together.”13:06 How to approach learning Torah with your children (Take it Easy)“Don't think of it as ‘I'm teaching my child Torah,' but rather ‘I'm learning with my child.'”20:35 Devash Magazine: making Torah learning sweet“Make this magazine your own!

Study Guide Rosh Hashanah 11 Pictures This month of learning is sponsored in memory of Dr. Chaya R. Gorsetman, Chaya bat Esriel ה’Naomi z’l during the period of shloshim by her husband, children, and grandchildren. "We especially wanted to sponsor Talmud learning in honor of Chaya because Chaya learned gemara with her father, Esriel, starting in the sixth grade. This was an unusual opportunity for women at that time and Esriel loved Gemara and made it come alive for Chaya. This experience impacted her life's work, educating novice teachers to give children the tools to nurture their wonder and natural curiosity, in order to make them lifelong learners. As part of her educational philosophy and life, Chaya championed greater involvement and engagement of women in Orthodox Jewish life, so it feels especially meaningful to sponsor learning through Hadran, an organization dedicated to inspiring and enabling Jewish women across the world to learn Talmud. What are the sources upon which both Rabbi Eliezer and Rabbi Yehoshua derive each of the dates of the events discussed - the creation of the world, birth and death date of Avraham and Yaakov, and of Yitchak, Sarah, Rachel, and Chana's prayers were answered (to have children), the release of Joseph from jail, Jews stopped being slaves in Egypt, the Exodus from Egypt, and the future redemption. They have another debate regarding the date of the flood which is dependent on their debate regarding the creation of the world. Rabbi Eliezer who holds that the world was created in Nissan holds that the flood began on 17 Cheshvan. Rabbi Yehuda who holds that the world was created in Tishrei holds that the flood began on 17 Iyar.
Christianity is built on a Jewish foundation, and we're comfortable with that - as history. But what about the future? The coming Kingdom might be more Jewish than you imagine. At the very least, we can say that the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob have a bright future, and that God will not erase their distinctiveness.
