Noah had three sons - Shem, Ham and Japheth. All the earth was populated from the descendants of these three men.
“These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.” Genesis 9:19.
Shem’s name is the origin of the word Semitic; Shem’s great-grandson Eber was the father of those who were eventually called “Hebrews,” including Abraham.
While Shem and his sons are of biblical antiquity, the Semite is of much more recent origin, dating from 18th‑century Europe. Semites was a term for a group of people who speak the Semitic languages.
Women have been many things down through the centuries. They have been helpmates, wives, lovers, sisters, mothers, chattels, slaves, and, yes, toys. “Toy” is not usually the woman’s choice as a role, but some clothing styles tend to play up this role, along with the emphasis on having a new, in-style wardrobe each year.
Women are not toys. You can prove it by wearing clothing that shows that you understand the role of the women and men who labored to create them. More than that, you can support women’s sustainable cottage industries. Economics writers and professors will tell you that to change the world, you should support women.
The Western Wall (sometimes called the Wailing Wall or the Kotel), is actually the only surviving remnant of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, which was destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE.
Jerusalem was destroyed and rebuilt nine times and through it all, one symbol remained intact: the Western Wall. The Western Wall is especially dear, as it is the spot closest to the Holy of Holies, the central focus of the Temple.
The Wailing Wall remains a current place of contact, a fresh reservoir of Holiness. This principle applies to each of us, because we are each a Holy Temple, each of us a Sanctuary for the Divine.
Like most women, I have a love-hate relationship with fashion and more style faux-pas in my repertoire than I care to mention. But, for the sake of nostalgia, I’ll share a few of them with you today in hopes that they’ll inspire you to laugh at your own fashion fails. Because let’s face it - who doesn’t have them?
As a small girl, all I wanted to wear was pink clothes with glitter and sequins like the dresses I saw on my favorite Disney princesses. I was convinced that pink was going to be my favorite color for life but little did I know that I’d soon meet a friend who’d manage to completely change my mind on the matter.
The Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish is a church in Tabgha (ancient Heptapegon) on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee in Israel. The church is the traditional site of the Miracle of the Multiplication. It is situated in a narrow, fertile valley on the northern shore of the lake, watered by several springs. It stands where the miraculous feeding of the multitude took place.
Greek ichthys (ΙΧΘΥΣ - Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter) is a symbol in Christian art and literature representing the sign of the fish.
Start with yourself. Bring your loaves and fishes and let’s get started. It begins with you.
With everyone talking about the “his and her fashion trends”, I’ve found myself looking more and more at couples and wedding lists. I love seeing these couples and love seeing how they somehow perfectly match each other, sometimes perfectly coordinated and sometimes just a perfect blend of different prints and textures, couples are a Trend!
When couples unite in marriage, their personal union draws its power from the cosmic marriage that underlies the whole of existence — the bonding of the divine masculine and feminine energies emerging from the Creator's Infinite Light to generate existence, a world, and life.
Hanukkah? Christmas? Why not celebrate both at once this December?
December is known as the holiday Season. It features Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, the winter solstice, and other major and minor holidays — and let's not forget Festivus. But if you have a diverse family or friend group, or just really, really love to celebrate the holidays, there’s a relatively new tradition: Chrismukkah.
