Orna writes, "God had set plenty of special opportunities for us in the Biblical calendar to meet with Him. They are called Mo’ed or Mo’adim in Hebrew, meaning a specific Date. Each one with its unique rituals and significance."
Orna writes, "We are so used to nations asking our forgiveness for their part in hiding His Jewishness from us. But the time has come for us to own our part and repent of the choices we made ourselves."
Orna writes, "I thought to myself: they will most likely feel better once they’re done, believing they did their part to deserve His favor today. Sadness shadowed over me. How remote from Truth!"
Orna writes, "Is it possible? Can anyone atone for sins and receive forgiveness without the shedding of pure blood?"
Orna writes, "Dana immigrated to Israel from Latvia eight years ago, and married a good friend of mine. In her homeland she was working as a lawyer for the central bank. In Israel she wanted to seek a different path for fulfillment. Last month she joined me on a ministry trip to Finland. I will let her share the story..."
Orna writes, "What can I say in your honor, Jerusalem, that hasn’t already been said? Everyone wants to crown you and say “she’s mine”, or “I was here first.” Is there a place left on your head for me to set some crowns of my own?"
