“How gladly would I treat you like my children
and give you a pleasant land,
the most beautiful inheritance of any nation.”
(Jeremiah 3:19)

Here, in the Holy Land circa 1900, fishermen on the Sea of Galilee enjoy this “pleasant land,” God promised in the Bible – the Holy Land, the land of Israel. Shabbat shalom, friends.
