The First Israel Insights

Sea_of_GalileeShalom everyone! This is my first entry for Israel Insights. I am the new Internet and Jerusalem Correspondent for The Crossover Project. This fall I will be attending Hebrew University to study Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies. I am looking forward to experiencing Israel once again. I was in Israel for five weeks last summer and had the time of my life. I met so many interesting people and got to experience the amazing Land of Israel. It's true that there is no place like Israel. Where else can I go to the site of the First and Second Temple, visit King David's Tomb and walk the Via Dolorosa where Jesus walked to his crucifixion? Nowhere else. While I am there, I hope to keep you updated on what I experience, any insight I have of current events and introduce you to some of the fascinating people I meet along the way.  I pray that you all are blessed in every area of your life! Pray for me while I am here and that I might bring you all the best information and news I come across.

Sukkot

The Festival of Sukkot begins on Tishri 15, the fifth day after Yom Kippur. It is quite a drastic transition, from one of the most solemn holidays in our year to one of the most joyous. Sukkot is so unreservedly joyful that it is commonly referred to in Jewish prayer and literature as Z'man Simchateinu Z'mn Simchateinu (in Hebrew), the Season of our Rejoicing.

Sukkot is the last of the Shalosh R'galim (three pilgrimage festivals). Like Passover and Shavu'ot, Sukkot has a dual significance: historical and agricultural. Historically, Sukkot commemorates the forty-year period during which the children of Israel were wandering in the desert, living in temporary shelters. Agriculturally, Sukkot is a harvest festival and is sometimes referred to as Chag Ha-Asif Chag Ha-Asif (in Hebrew), the Festival of Ingathering.

Memory

Do you ever wonder, what is memory? Why do we seek to remember, to hold in reverence the things that have past and gone on when we live in a brief, transient present? I can never forget the voices of the victims expressing their anguish, fear, and hopelessness that resound through every writing, diary, letter, postcard, painting, and melody that...

Bill Nye the Straw Man Guy and Noah’s Ark

Bill Nye frequently employed straw man arguments throughout the debate. Perhaps nowhere were these fallacies used more often than when he spoke about Noah, the Ark, and the Flood.

Picture of the Week: Ostia

(Post by Seth M. Rodriquez)
Why did Paul have to land in a harbor about 150 miles from Rome and then walk the rest of the way? In last week's post, we discussed the Italian city of Puteoli, which served as Rome's harbor for many years even though it is a significant distance from the capital. The book of Acts tells us that Paul ended his long and...

What Must We Do to be Blessed?

The idea of Torah observance may seem strange and unnecessary today, but not so in the 1st century.  Jewish believers never questioned their need to observe Torah, because Yeshua was Torah observant. So after deciding Gentiles need not be circumcised, the assembly determined which regulations Gentile believers would follow.  Bible commentators...

*In both the Jewish and Christian traditions, the name of G-d is treated with honor and respect.  In the Jewish tradition, in order to show respect, the name of the L-rd is written without a vowel.  The idea is that if a document with His name on it is destroyed or deleted, His name will be spared because it was not written out fully.
