"Her Salvation Blazes Like a Torch" ✡ Hebrew Lesson: Jerusalem

For Zion's sake I will not be silent and for Jerusalem's sake I will not be still, until her righteousness emanates like bright light, and her salvation blazes like a torch.

ISAIAH (62:1)
לְמַעַן צִיּוֹן לֹא אֶחֱשֶׁה וּלְמַעַן יְרוּשָׁלִַם לֹא אֶשְׁקוֹט עַד יֵצֵא כַנֹּגַהּ צִדְקָהּ וִישׁוּעָתָהּ כְּלַפִּיד יִבְעָר

יְשַׁעְיָהוּ סב:א

l'-ma-an tzee-on lo e-khe-se u-l'-ma-an y'-ru-sha-lai-yim lo esh-kot ad yay-tzay ka-no-ga tzid-ka vee-shu-a-ta k'-la-peed yiv-ar

Today's Israel Inspiration

The word "Jerusalem" is composed of two meaningful words in Hebrew: Yirah (awe) and Salem (peace or "wholeness"). Tomorrow marks the English anniversary of the Six Day War when Jerusalem became "whole" again after almost 2,000 years. We are proud that only under Israeli sovereignty have the holy sites of Jerusalem been safeguarded and open to all faiths to worship freely. Sign the Jerusalem Covenant and express support for an undivided Jerusalem.
