May 21, 2019

כִּ֣י כֹ֣ה אָמַר֮ יְהֹוָ֣ה צְבָאוֹת֒ אַחַ֣ר כָּב֔וֹד שְׁלָחַ֕נִי אֶל־הַגּוֹיִ֖ם הַשֹּׁלְלִ֣ים אֶתְכֶ֑ם כִּ֚י הַנֹּגֵ֣עַ בָּכֶ֔ם נֹגֵ֖עַ בְּבָבַ֥ת עֵינֽוֹ׃

For thus said the lord of Hosts—He who sent me after glory—concerning the nations that have taken you as spoil: “Whoever touches you touches the pupil of his own eye.

ki-KHO a-MAR a-do-NAI t'-va-OT, a-KHAR ka-VOD she-la-KHA-nee el ha-go-YIM ha-sho-LE-leem et-KHEM, ki ha-NO-gay-a ba-KHEM, no-gay-a b'-va-VAT ay-NO

Zechariah 2:12

The Sisters of Mary join Rabbi Tuly Weisz to discuss this passage and why they love it so much!

These German sisters feel the guilt for what Germany did to the Jewish People during the Holocaust. Reading the Bible has helped them understand the connection between God and the People of Israel. They have repent for standing by during WWII, and now proclaim their support for Israel.
