“Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the LORD,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water”
(Psalm 1:1-3)

In this photo from the Holy Land of yesteryear, a tree stands tall on the shores of the Sea of Galilee (known in Hebrew as the Kinneret) in 1949, just one year after Israel won her independence. Shabbat shalom, friends.
