Israel is a country in Western Asia, located on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea. It has land borders with Lebanon to the north, Syria to the northeast, Jordan on the east, the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip to the east and west, respectively, and Egypt to the southwest. The country contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. Israel’s economic and technological center is Tel Aviv, while its seat of government and proclaimed capitalis Jerusalem, although the state’s sovereignty over Jerusalem has only partial recognition.

Israel has evidence of the earliest migration of hominids out of Africa. Canaanite tribes are archaeologically attested since the Middle Bronze Age, while the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah emerged during the Iron Age. The Neo-Assyrian Empire destroyed Israel around 720 BCE. Judah was later conquered by the Babylonian, Persian and Hellenistic empires and had existed as Jewish autonomous provinces. The successful Maccabean Revolt led to an independent Hasmonean kingdom by 110 BCE, which in 63 BCE however became a client state of the Roman Republic that subsequently installed the Herodian dynasty in 37 BCE, and in 6 CE created the Roman province of Judea. Judea lasted as a Roman province until the failed Jewish revolts resulted in widespread destruction, the expulsion of the Jewish population and the renaming of the region from Iudaea to Syria Palaestina. Jewish presence in the region has persisted to a certain extent over the centuries. In the 7th century CE, the Levant was taken from the Byzantine Empire by the Arabs and remained in Muslim control until the First Crusade of 1099, followed by the Ayyubid conquest of 1187. The Mamluk Sultanate of Egypt extended its control over the Levant in the 13th century until its defeat by the Ottoman Empire in 1517. During the 19th century, national awakening among Jews led to the establishment of the Zionistmovement in the diaspora followed by waves of immigration to Ottoman Syria and later Mandatory Palestine.

In 1947, the United Nations (UN) adopted a Partition Plan for Palestine recommending the creation of independent Arab and Jewish states and an internationalized Jerusalem. The plan was accepted by the Jewish Agency, and rejected by Arab leaders. The following year, the Jewish Agency declared the independence of the State of Israel, and the subsequent 1948 Arab–Israeli War saw Israel’s establishment over most of the former Mandate territory, while the West Bank and Gaza were held by neighboring Arab states. Israel has since fought several wars with Arab countries, and since the Six-Day War in 1967 held occupied territories including the West Bank, Golan Heights and the Gaza Strip (still considered occupied after the 2005 disengagement, although some legal experts dispute this claim). It extended its laws to the Golan Heights and East Jerusalem, but not the West Bank. Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories is the world’s longest military occupation in modern times. Efforts to resolve the Israeli–Palestinian conflict have not resulted in a final peace agreement. However, peace treaties between Israel and both Egypt and Jordan have been signed.

In its Basic Laws, Israel defines itself as a Jewish and democratic state. The country has a liberal democracy, with a parliamentary system, proportional representation, and universal suffrage. The prime minister is head of government and the Knesset is the legislature. With a population of around 9 million as of 2019, Israel is a developed country and an Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) member, and has the 31st or 32nd-largesteconomy in the world by nominal gross domestic product (GDP). Israel has the highest standard of living in the Middle East, and ranks among the world’s top countries by percentage of citizens with military training, percentage of citizens holding a tertiary education degree, research and development spending by GDP percentage, women’s safety, life expectancy, innovativeness, and happiness.

Shmini Atzeret, or "the eighth of the assembly," is simply a day of rest at the end of Sukkot. ⁠

A common expression in Israel during the fall festivals is "after the holidays." Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot have covered most of September. Thus, there are many days off from work and school, and people postpone most projects and paperwork, making it difficult to get anything done until after the holidays. In a way, delays and lateness are all excusable during this season! Now that the last holiday, Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles) is ending, Israel will kick back into gear, and people will fall back into their routines.⁠

Please pray for our workers to enter this new season with energy and gusto to share the message of the Messiah authentically and passionately! Please also pray that those who hear this message of hope and salvation will receive it, especially after having completed the high holiday season of repentance and redemption. 🙏 For more news, check out this week's edition of Inside Israel—link in bio!⁠

Israel. The Dead Sea. You will not find sand on the shore of the Dead Sea. At the bottom, instead of sand, there are balls of sea salt the size of a quail egg and more. Walking on them is not very convenient, but it is no worse than walking on the bottom with coral fragments.

𝙈𝙄 𝘾𝙐𝙀𝙍𝙋𝙊, 𝙈𝙄 𝙏𝙀𝙈𝙋𝙇𝙊.

A nuestro cuerpo lo odiamos, lo amamos, lo cuidamos, lo descuidamos, lo alimentamos, lo desalimentamos, lo maltratamos y a veces lo aceptamos.

Las redes sociales y la apariencia perfecta se han vuelto una obsesión para mucha gente que intenta cumplir con los “estándares de belleza” que propone una sociedad que mide el éxito únicamente por la imagen física.

Cuánto sacrificio y cuánto nos exigimos a nosotros mismos para llegar a semejante “perfección”? 😰

Hagamos una pausa antes de criticar los rollitos del vecino, las estrías de tu amiga, las celulitis de una chica, la delgadez de un conocido, las cicatrices de uno mismo.
Cada persona atraviesa un mundo de emociones que muchas veces llevan al cambio físico y emocional. Cuidemos nuestras palabras e intentemos siempre pensar antes de hablar, porque esa crítica o comentario pueden desestabilizar a más de uno, alentar al boicot personal o hacerle pensar que no encaja en esta “sociedad”.

Que nuestras palabras sean siempre para impulsar y no para desmotivar. Ya sea en una red social, en una charla con amigos o en un diálogo interno con uno mismo, que nuestra meta sea el amor personal. 🙏🏼

Proponemos respeto, conciencia, aceptación y mucho amor ❤️.

This is the last full week of the off-season. It has been better than I could have asked for. The air is cooling. The blue jacket is out. Ice time is around the next corner.
