Hebron and the biblical heartland are blanketed in snow!

The IDF soldiers of Hebron have new, warm gloves provided by a generous donor - thank you! The soldiers are so grateful, especially with the snow this week! The children (and adults) had snowball fights and enjoyed the rare weather. Check out the pictures below!

The holiday of Purim is coming up next Thursday night. In an oddity, Hebron celebrates two days of Purim. This is because of the uncertainty that Hebron was a walled city from the times of Joshua. If you’ve toured with Rabbi Hochbaum, you might have seen some of the historical walls at the Archaeological Park (which we helped dig and now promote through the official Israel National Parks Service). The ritual baths discovered there are now covered again - this time in snow – I don’t think anyone wants to take a dip in there today!

If you would like to make a special contribution for Purim beyond your general support, here are projects that need your help: food packages for soldiers, financial subsidies (Matanot Le'evyonim) for families, and a Purim Seudah BBQ for as many soldiers as possible.

Take a look at the articles below that highlight the intent of the BDS and other anti-Zionist movements to uproot us. Your support and friendship make all the difference in the world to the families and soldiers of Hebron. We will not be deterred.

Shabbat Shalom and Blessings from a snowy Hebron,

[WATCH] Rabbi Simcha Hochbaum shares a message of camaraderie from the commandment to build the Tabernacle ("Place of Meeting"), from Hebron, Israel

Our schools, places of worship, and communities should be places where people from all walks of life feel drawn in, welcomed and united.

Parshat Teruma
By: Rabbi Moshe Goodman, Kollel Ohr Shlomo, Hebron
לשכנו תדרשו
Discover the Holy Presence in the Holy Land

And They Shall Make a Temple and I Will Rest in Their Midst

In Parshat Yitro, we discussed the connection between God’s Name, indicative of His Presence, and the Temple, location of His Presence. Therefore, in continuation of our discussion of God’s names in the book of Shemot, literally “names”, we would like to discuss matters of the Temple, resting place of God’s Presence, and “Name,” that encompass all the parshiot of this book till its end.
