War Against the Covenant

Our February 5 show on Hebrew Nation Radio turned out much differently than we had planned! Here’s what happened:

This show explores the most significant promise God has made. The promise refers, of course, to Israel. It most certainly applies to the entire nation – both the Jewish House of Judah, and the non-Jewish House of Israel/Ephraim. Here is what Jeremiah writes about it –  

I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; and I will put the fear of Me in their hearts so that they will not turn away from Me. I will rejoice over them to do them good and will faithfully plant them in this land with all My heart and with all My soul. For thus says the Lord, Just as I brought all this great disaster on this people, so I am going to bring on them all the good that I am promising them. (Jeremiah 32:40-42 NASB)

Today we examine the application of this promise to the Jewish people. Our inspiration for this conversation is the senseless murder of Rabbi Itamar Ben-Gal as he stood at a bus stop in Ariel, Israel. Why is the death of one Jewish man in what the world calls the West Bank important? Because it is the latest in a age-old war against the God of Israel and the Covenant He established with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and their descendants.

It is not difficult to see the connection of such events as the 1884 judicial persecution of French army officer Alfred Dreyfus, the 1939 British White Paper severely limiting Jewish immigration to the Holy Land, and in that same year the ordeal of the SS St. Louis, whose Jewish refugee passengers were turned away by Cuba, the US, and Canada. These were all precursors to the Shoah (Holocaust), remembered today in such moving memorials as the Pinkas Synagogue of Prague, the walls of which are inscribed with the names of 80,000 Czech Jews who perished in the Nazi final solution to the “Jewish Problem.”

This war against the Covenant has raged since the days of Abraham, but we know how it will end. Restoring the entire nation of Israel and returning them to the Promised Land is the one thing God has promised to do with all His heart and soul. In other words, our Creator has tied His Name and His sovereignty to this Covenant promise. The stakes, therefore, could not be any higher.

Approaching Israel’s 70th Anniversary

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, January 22:
Did you know that 2018 is the 70th anniversary of Israel’s rebirth as an independent nation? The modern state of Israel was born on May 14, 1948 – or in the Hebrew calendar, Iyyar 5, 5708. This is known as Yom HaAtzma’ut (Independence Day) in Hebrew.
As with all Hebrew dates, Yom HaAtzma’ut falls on a different day each year in the Gregorian calendar. This year it is April 19 – a little over two weeks after Passover. And what happens just before Passover?
That’s the subject of our visit with Ephraim and Rimona Frank, organizers of the Third B’ney Yosef Congress. The Congress takes place March 23-27, 2018, at the Eshel Hashomron Hotel in Ariel, Israel. As with so many things occurring in Israel during this 70th year of independence, this event takes on special significance. What is that significance? That’s what we will discuss with Ephraim and Rimona. In a sense, this is a continuation of our conversation with them from this past November. Join us to find out what’s happened in the last three months, and how you can be a part of these exciting events in the restoration of all Israel!

Land of Poverty?

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, December 4:

The average monthly salary for a person in the United States is $3,214.22.* The average salary in Israel is $2,583.51. The average Israeli is already starting out with a net income at least one-fifth less than his or her American counterpart, but that might not be a problem if the cost of living is less.

But it isn’t.

Some things cost less, but many everyday items cost much more. Gasoline, for example, is $2.35 per gallon ($0.62 per liter) in the US, but $6.48 per gallon ($1.71 per liter) in Israel. Then there is clothing: a pair of jeans costs $41.48 in the US, but $90.06 in Israel. Running shoes are $73.34 in America, but $122.20 in Israel. And a nice summer dress from a good store? An American would pay $34.31, but an Israeli $56.73.

The statistics go on like this. It’s hard enough imagining how to make ends meet if one is gainfully employed, but what about newly arrived olim (immigrants)? How do they get along as they struggle to learn the language of their new home? What if they are refugees who have arrived with nothing? What if they’re not refugees, but still have families to feed and clothe in one of the most expensive countries in the world?

This is reality in Israel. We think of it as the Holy Land of Promise, and it is exactly that. However, it is not easy living there. That’s why we asked Jessica Katz to be our guest on this show. Jessica is the Director of Yad Leah, a volunteer organization dedicated to collecting and distributing clothing to Israelis who need it. This may seem like a small thing, but as she will explain, meeting the clothing needs of a struggling family makes a tremendous difference in their ability to survive and thrive.

This is a story of hope. As you listen to it, you will begin to realize the depth of poverty in Israel, and the transformative power of clothing.

Prophecy in Motion

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, November 27:
What’s the next step for the Ephraimite Awakening? Come to the Third B’ney Yosef National Congress and find out!

That’s the subject of our visit with Ephraim and Rimona Frank during the second hour of this show. They are already organizing the Third Congress, which will happen at the Eshel Hashomron Hotel in Ariel, Israel, March 23-27, 2018.
What has happened since the Second Congress concluded in October 2016? Quite a bit, as Ephraim and Rimona will explain. Developments both in the Ephraimite Awakening, and in Jewish awareness of it, indicate an acceleration and expansion of the process of Israel’s complete restoration.

Where does this fit in the prophetic timeline? We will certainly talk about that. The Third Congress happens just before Passover, and only three weeks before the 70th anniversary of Israel’s rebirth as a nation. The timing alone is of great prophetic significance – but what exactly does that mean?

Our conversation with Ephraim and Rimona will follow our update from Hanoch, who is in the midst of his latest U.S. tour with his latest presentation, “What Next, Israel?” How does his presentation fit with the anticipation of the Third Congress, and how is it being received? Join us and find out!

When the Bible Comes Alive

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, November 20:

The Bible is a history book. The events recorded in it really happened to real, flesh-and-blood people who were not very different from real people who have lived in every age and in every place. Maybe if we understand that a little better, we would read the Bible with more interest.

Miriam Feinberg Vamosh can help us with that. This American-born Israeli writer, translator, and guide has a deep love of her homeland. She has learned much about her Jewish heritage in the Land, and about the course of Israel’s history which have shaped the realities of the present. She is eager to share her learning with others. As she says

My love affair with the Bible and ancient sources, which led to my books and articles, deepened over my many years as a tour educator – and thus, every visitor who ever asked me a question has earned my gratitude.

Miriam’s decades of work have resulted in a number of books which introduce audiences to a wide variety of aspects about the land and people of Israel. This includes her first historical fiction novel, The Scroll. Miriam crafted this story from a real archaeological find from Masada, weaving it into the saga of a family that spans the dramatic decades from the fall of Masada at the end of the Great Jewish War to the Bar Kokhba Revolt in 135 CE.

Come along and join us in our visit with Miriam. You just might learn that life in modern Israel is just as fascinating as Israel’s bigger-than-life biblical history!
