Ten ‘lost tribes’ no longer lost; the religious significance of Israel; Jerusalem has started building an $870 million major highway; and much more!

By Michael Ordman

THE JEWISH STATE

The religious significance of Israel

Last year, in his “Covenant and Conversation” essay on this week’s Torah portion (Masei), ex-UK Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks wrote “Only in Israel can the Jewish people construct a political system, an economy, and an environment on the template of Jewish values.”

The 10 lost tribes are not lost anymore

Excellent lecture by Rabbi Dr Jonathan Lieberman. He suggests that Ezekiel’s prophecy of the return of the lost tribes of Israel is becoming a reality.

The Jerusalem Road

Jerusalem has started building part of an $870 million major highway that will serve as a ring road around Israel’s capital city, with the goal of significantly alleviating traffic throughout the capital. It will complete the “American Road” which was planned in the 1960s but halted due to the Six-Day War.
