One of the indications that the Almighty is fulfilling His promises to restore the entire nation of Israel is that they will have to find solutions for all the people coming home to the Promised Land. That’s what we learn from Isaiah:
For your waste and desolate places, and the land of your destruction, will even now be too small for the inhabitants; and those who swallowed you up will be far away. The children you will have, after you have lost the others, will say again in your ears, “The place is too small for me; give me a place where I may dwell.” (Isaiah 49:19-20 NKJV)
According to Moshe and Leah Goldsmith, Israel has now reached that point! As the nation celebrates 70 years since its rebirth, the Goldsmiths make this observation from their home in Itamar:
It is getting crowded here! Old values are slipping away with post modernism and economic boom at a fast pace. The connection of people to the earth as cities swell is slipping away. Judea Samaria takes on a new importance and with room for growth and idealism at its height here.
The ideals this country was founded on are however flourishing right here on ITAMAR. We are proud to do it with our own two hands in the pioneering spirit that helped to found this country. Despite terrorism that has hit our community hard; we are growing yet maintaining old important values of down to earth and view working the Land as a sacred task not only for us but for the entire nation of Israel and the world. We try to live the verse: “For Thy servants take pleasure in her stones and love her dust. ” (Psalms 102/15)
That’s a fitting introduction to the conversation we’ll have with Moshe and Leah in this edition of The Remnant Road!
