Meteor shower rains on Israel

Late Sunday night into early this Monday morning, Israelis were treated to a stunning view of this year’s Perseid meteor shower. Nine thousand Israelis gathered in the central Negev area to witness more than one meteor a minute shooting across the night sky. The timing of the display made it even more meaningful:

The spectacle in the sky began after the earliest time for the daily evening prayers, in which Jews around the world recite before the “Shema Yisrael” prayer, “by His wisdom opens the gates of heaven, with understanding makes time change and the season rotate, and by His will orders the stars in their constellations in the sky.”

The annual Perseid meteor shower occurs when the Earth passes through the dusty remains of the comet Swift-Tuttle. Its names is derived from the constellation Perseus, from where the meteor shower appears to put on its show.

What an amazing display of God’s power in one of the holiest places He created!

What a Blessing

One of the things I give thanks for every day is the continued and faithful support for Israel and the Jewish people shown by you, The Fellowship’s friends and supporters. I want to share with you just a few words of thanks from those you have helped, so you can see what a blessing you are for each one of them.
