Yitro – “Jethro”

Our parasha for this Shabbat, spanning Exodus 18-20 is one of the most significant in all the Torah, because it describes Israel’s encounter with God at Mt. Sinai, and the giving of the Ten Commandments. Interesting, that this parasha should be entitled Yitro, the name of Moses’ father-in-law. Yitro (Jethro) comes to Moses with Zipporah and Moses’ 2 sons Gershom

Are We There Yet?: Part 2

When it comes to professional sports, let me just go on record as saying: Detroit is the place to live if you enjoy despondency! 2018 was another rough year for our teams. In spite of a lot of talented players, the Lions had a dismal season. The Tigers weren’t much better. It’s been 10 years since the Red Wings were

Jonathan said to his young armor-bearer, “Come, let's go over to the outpost of those uncircumcised fellows. Perhaps the Lord will act in our behalf.

Luke 17:11-19 – You Ungrateful Sons of… Adam!

Now on His way to Jerusalem, Yeshua traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee.

In 14 chapters Luke chronicled about three full years of Yeshua’s ministry;

Gracefully Enduring Rejection and Ridicule for Yeshua’s Sake

In his second letter to the believers in Corinth, Rabbi Paul wrote, Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort.
