 2:14  For the earth shall be filled with awe for the glory of Hashem

Yigal Allon (1918-1980)

Here Chavakuk describes a great future for the entire world upon the return of the Jewish people to Eretz Yisrael. One of Israel’s leading statesmen, Yigal Allon (1918-1980), eloquently defined Modern Zionism for world leaders in an address to the United Nations in 1975: “Zionism is the modern expression of the ancient Jewish heritage. Zionism is the national liberation movement of a people exiled from its historic homeland and dispersed among the nations of the world. Zionism is the redemption of an ancient nation from a tragic lot and the redemption of a land neglected for centuries. Zionism is the revival of an ancient language and culture, in which the vision of a universal peace has been a central theme. Zionism is the embodiment of a unique pioneering spirit, of the dignity of labor, and of enduring human values. Zionism is creating a society, however, imperfect it may still be, which tries to implement the highest ideal of democracy — political, social and cultural – for all the inhabitants of Israel, irrespective of religious belief, race or sex. Zionism is, in sum, the constant and unrelenting effort to realize the national and universal vision of the prophets of Israel.”

  • Israel is more than just the beginning – it is the Centre, like a pebble thrown into a pool, the concentric circular waves start from the centre and circles out, but without the pebble hitting the centre/ the beginning the other circles would not have been possible. Amen on 'the whole earth , His whole creation will be restored and become the fullness of His intentions', but from His Land Israel, where He chooses to place His Glory and through His people. Shalom.

  • “For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.”
    Y’srael is only the beginning. It was the downpayment, but in the end, the whole earth will be filled with His glory.
    As we act as “watchmen on the wall”, our eyes are turned to Y’rushalyem. The final events will begin here and yet, they will not be the end as the whole earth, His whole creation will be restored and become the fullness of His intentions from Beresheet.
    Baruch Hashem.
