Photo Friday: Call Her Blessed

Photo Friday: Call Her Blessed

“Her children arise and call her blessed;
     her husband also, and he praises her:
‘Many women do noble things,
     but you surpass them all.’
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
     but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Honor her for all that her hands have done,
     and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”
(Proverbs 31:28-31)

We’re still more than a week away from Mother’s Day, but that did not stop this new member of the Knesset (Israel’s parliament) from honoring the woman who helped him get where he is today, per IsraellyCool’s Aussie Dave:

What could make this next video of an Ethiopian man kissing his mother’s feet as a sign of respect even more poignant?

The fact he is a new Israeli Knesset member (Gadi Yevarkan) who was doing so as his family arrived to see him inducted into the Knesset at today’s inaugural session of the 21st Knesset.

Shabbat shalom, friends.
