עַיִן לְצִיּוֹן צוֹפִיָּה; ‘Ayin letziyon tzofiyah; An eye still gazes toward Zion;

הַתִּקְוָה בַּת שְׁנוֹת אַלְפַּיִם, Hatikvah bat shnot alpayim, The hope of two thousand years,
לִהְיוֹת עַם חָפְשִׁי בְּאַרְצֵנוּ, Lihyot ‘am chofshi be’artzeinu, To be a free people in our land,

  1. i love israel 4 their courage & hard work 2 excel at the time of extreme difficulty……i being a hindu how hindus r soft & cant protect our own peole & religion…..i would want to shake hands with jews 4 supporting survive the holocaust kind of a situation where we being friendly have always been plundered by others….israel in hebrew means cub…..& it rightly is a son of a tiger

  2. Wonderful to see your support of Israel, when so many in the church seem to believe the church has replaced them in God’s estimation. And I keep reading in the news, sadly, that anti-Semitism is on the rise.

    Thank you also for following my blog and encouraging me. Have followed you back!
    Look forward to reading more of your posts.

    God bless. 🙂
