Passover - A Festival to the Lord

Jewish Legion soldiers celebrate Passover in Jerusalem, 1919 (Photo: wikicommons/Central Zionist Archives)

"This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the LORD - a lasting ordinance." (Exodus 12:14)

In this photo taken in 1919, soldiers of the Jewish Legion - the force created to battle the Ottoman Empire during the First World War and a precursor to the IDF - commemorate God's deliverance of their forefathers during a Passover seder in Jerusalem.

As Passover begins this evening at sundown, we'll be back on Monday, April 25. If any critical developments related to Israel come up in the meantime we will post them on the Stand for Israel blog. We wish our Jewish friends a blessed Passover. Thank you for always standing for Israel!

Passover a Sacred Time to Save Lives

Help the Unseen

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
