Israeli soldiers in pictures

A friend sent this link to a remarkable set of pictures of Israeli soldiers on the front lines. It is well worth a look, even if you don’t read Hebrew.

6:22 The Lord spoke to Moses: 23 “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is the way you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them: 24 “The Lord bless you and protect you; Numbers 25 The Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; 26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.”’

It is called Tefillin. The block contains passages from the Torah and is worn during prayer.

What great photos. Never, have I ever, seen the spiritual side of IDF soldiers in the field, very few have I'm sure.

It also goes a long way to dispel the notion that the IDF just buys American armor and other weapons. Nope, they develop and manufacture their own. During the cold war the IDF was rated the 3rd most powerful military in the world, with the demise of Russia (so far) are they now No. 2, do I have this right? And this with the UK in mind, amazing.

There's so much we don't see because of the dinosaur/propagandized media in this Socialist country of ours, these are very refreshing. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

As in Deuteronomy 6:8 - "Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead" - two boxes: on sitting on your forehead, one on your upper arm, attached by these strips.

Can someone please tell me the name of the charity that has been advertised on Fox News that helps Jewish families who have been displaced because of the war?

Thanks for that info. I was wondering the same thing myself. I would suppose they would in turn wonder about some of the traditions and practices we have in many of our Christian churches.

I don't know what Fox mentioned, but these two do very good work: www.onefamilyfund.org and www.zaka.org.il

Teffilin are only used in morning prayer (Shacharit) and not on the Sabbath.

Great pictures. The Orthodox make up a large part of the best units often on the front lines of the IDF. Many come from the so called occupied territories, a sort of live work situation defending their homes.

Cool photos. I see another message as well.

We may be Jews, but we are armed to the teeth....

May they have fought their last war, their last battles. May God change the hearts of their enemies in one minute and cause them to repent their evil.

And if God does not see fit to change their enemies hearts, may he protect the soldiers of Israel and grant them victory.

If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence.
If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.
