“But on Mount Zion will be deliverance;
    it will be holy,
    and Jacob will possess his inheritance.”
(Obadiah 7:17)

In this photo, taken in the pre-state days of Israel in 1942 as war and anti-Semitism targeted European Jewry, the Zionist dream was certainly alive as we look from the Mount of Olives toward Mount Zion, the holy inheritance of God’s people. Shabbat shalom, friends.
