I am blessed to be in the Land of the King for two weeks. It’s been cold and rainy in Jerusalem, but it’s only made the streets of gold glisten all the more! These photos are from erev Shabbat last night.
I prerecorded a video for the tenth month of Tevet before I left for Israel. Sadly, when I tried to upload to YouTube tonight, the audio had issues that I could not repair. If I am able, I will record again while I’m in the Land. If not, I’ll post the video later this month after I return home. Meanwhile, may Adonai bless your tenth month of Tevet!
They said to one another, “Here comes that dreamer!” Gen. 37:19 (HCSB)
I was honored to have Bonnie Manning (aka Tekoa Manning) join me this month to discuss the importance of dreams. We discussed what the Bible says about dreams (especially those of Joseph, the “Master of Dreams”), common dream symbols, why your dreams matter, and more!

Kislev is the dubbed “The Month of Dreams,” as nine of the ten dreams recorded in the Torah are read during this month. As the ninth month, it and dreams are “pregnant” with meaning. (See this article for a look at the spiritual aspects of nine, or this one for numbers in general.)
Sweet Dreams! And may your ninth month be blessed!
A Blessing For Dreams (Hatavat Chalom)
King of the Universe, I am Yours and my dreams are Yours. I have dreamt a dream and I do not know what it is. Whether I have dreamt about myself, or my companions have dreamt about me, or I have dreamt about others, if they are good dreams, confirm them and reinforce them like the dreams of Joseph, and if they require a remedy, heal them, as the waters of Marah were healed by Moses, and as Miriam was healed of her leprosy and Hezekiah of his sickness, and the waters of Jericho by Elisha. As you have changed the curse of the wicked Balaam into a blessing, so too, change all my dreams into something good for me.
Mighty One on high, abiding in power, You are peace and Your name is Peace. May it be Your will to bestow peace on us.
2Ch 15:1-7 (NASB) Now the Spirit of God came on Azariah (from root EZER) the son of Oded (RESTORER), 2 and he went out to meet Asa (HEALER) and said to him, “Listen to me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: the LORD is with you when you are with Him. And if you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you. 3 “For many days Israel was without the true God and without a teaching priest and without law. 4 “But in their distress they turned to the LORD God of Israel, and they sought Him, and He let them find Him. 5 “In those times there was no peace to him who went out or to him who came in, for many disturbances afflicted all the inhabitants of the lands. 6 “Nation was crushed by nation, and city by city, for God troubled them with every kind of distress.
7 “But YOU, BE STRONG and do NOT LOSE COURAGE, for there is REWARD for your WORK!”
Please don’t forsake reading the rest of this chapter and the previous one (14). This IS how we fight in this month!
