Yael’s Holy Land Reflections
When we pray for each other our prayers are more powerful and beloved to God. These prayers go straight to His heart. And that is why it is our honor to bring your prayers to the Western Wall.
When we’re young, we’re full of energy. When we’re older, we have wisdom and life experience. But worshiping the Lord in both seasons of life is key.
Being back in Chicago for the first time since my father’s passing has been hard, but has also given me peace, as I see how his life’s work, The Fellowship, is only growing stronger in our mission of bringing Christians and Jews together to do God’s work.
On Tisha B’Av, through fasting, reading the Book of Lamentations, and crying out to God in prayer, Jews mourn the long history of tragedies experienced by our people. But no matter how difficult things may seem, being able to watch and partake in His promises coming to fruition brings me hope and strength.
Though at one time it was a radical idea, today, the relationship between Christians and Jews is not only possible, but a blessing to us all. Let us continue to work in the spirit of togetherness, united in service to our God.
