2  Yerushalayim, hills enfold it, and Hashem enfolds His people now and forever.

ב  יְרוּשָׁלַ ִם הָרִים סָבִיב לָהּ וַיהֹוָה סָבִיב לְעַמּוֹ מֵעַתָּה וְעַד־עוֹלָם׃

 125:2   Yerushalayim 

The Hebrew name for Jerusalem, Yerushalayim (ירושלים), incorporates the word shalom, ‘peace.’ And the root of shalom (שלום) is shalem (שלם), meaning ‘whole’ or ‘complete.’ People fight with one another because they are not whole, and are not at peace with themselves. Once one is able to achieve wholeness, he can find inner peace, and will be much more likely to live peacefully with others. Throughout history and to this very day, many people come to Yerushalayim, the city of peace, to become whole within themselves and to find inner peace.

  • We learn today that the Hebrew word for Jerusalem, has some very deep and spiritual meanings that we did not know. That Jerusalem contains the word ‘shalom,’ peace. That the root shalem,’ means, whole, complete. Then the questions comes up is why do people fight against one another? a valid question. Because they are not whole or at peace in them self's. Then they cannot be this with others. A very logical thought and just plain truth indeed. We learn that once a person can make peace with themselves, become whole with themselves, only then can they begin to make peace with others. It is brought to our attention that even to this very day that so many people come to Jerusalem to find that inner peace, to heal themselves to make themselves whole once again. Jerusalem, city of universal peace. It will come to be in the years to come. I can see it, feel it. Dreams do come true when God is in the Picture. Amen, Carl
