Photo of the Week – Dead Sea Works Moonrise


Israel Tours

Highway <90> is a scenic road that runs along the western shore of the Dead Sea to Eilat. If you are driving at night the Dead Sea Works (DSW) appears like a mirage in the desert, like some alien space station of lights and structures.

Because the Dead Sea is incredibly rich in minerals, sodium, potassium, calcium, bromine, and magnesium salts (21 minerals, twelve of which are not found in any other water body) it is a desirable and profitable location for mineral extraction. The DSW is the world’s fourth largest producer and supplier of potash products.

The Passover Altar

 

There were ten miracles that occurred in the Temple on a regular basis. One of these miracles involved the smoke that arose from the fire of the altar. The altar was a large structure situated in the open courtyard of the Temple and there was a fire constantly burning on top of the altar (Leviticus 6:6). This fire consumed the offerings of Israel and sent them heavenward in a pillar of smoke. The miracle that was manifest in the smoke was that the wind never dispersed the smoke. The smoke always ascended heavenward in a solid pillar.

 

We can imagine that when the pilgrims journeyed from afar to worship at the Temple the first thing they would see from miles around Jerusalem was this pillar of smoke. Long before they could see the towering structure of the Temple itself they would see this pillar of…

The Justice of Mercy


“And God remembered Noah and all the beasts and all the cattle that were with him in the ark, and God caused a spirit to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided.”(Bereishit-Genesis 8:1)

And God remembered: Heb. אֱלֹהִים. This name represents the Divine Standard of Justice, which was converted to the Divine Standard of Mercy through the prayer of the righteous.

(Rashis’s commentary)

This was sent to a Christian who claimed that his worship of Jesus is “not worship of a form”

When you claim that you are not worshiping a form – you  are doing nothing to clarify the matter. You are moved by the suffering  experienced through a human body and you love the one who suffered in that body.  I call that worship of a form. You can call it what you want – but perhaps you  can explain how it is different from someone who is moved by the beauty of a  statue and falls in love with it – he then tells himself that the experience was  so deep that it must have been God Himself who imbued the statue with His own  beauty so that people could know Him – and this person elevates his love of the  statue to the level of his love for God…

Would you agree that the word “worship” means “engendering feelings in one’s heart towards”?

If  you agree to that definition – then how is it that engendering feelings in one’s  heart towards one who suffered in a human body – is not worshiping a  form?

Is  it because the focus is on the unseen and formless “personality” that was  contained in the body? If that is your point – then would you go on to say that  one who worships the “spirit” that they believe dwells in a statue or if they worship the  formless personality of any human or animal – would you say that they are not worshiping a  form?
