Note:  Such a little nation surrounded by enemies, fighting for its survival. Israel will take centre stage in the world in the end times, says the Bible. Jews are returning to their homeland from across the world. The nation is flourishing, but struggles for survival remain.  I enjoyed the autobiography of Israel’s Prime Minister, Golda Meir,  1969 to 1974 and a recent study of Judaism.

My study of Israel’s early history is provided in the top menu column, “Lessons From the Past.”  My desire is to offer more than just genealogy records, but valuable truths and lessons we can learn to help us in our own journey through life.
