“I was filled with delight day after day,
rejoicing always in his presence,
rejoicing in his whole world
and delighting in mankind.”
(Proverbs 8:30-31)

In this delightful photo taken in 1949, Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, takes time out of his day to watch Israeli schoolchildren dance outside of his office. Shabbat shalom, friends.
