Israel Redeemed: Inspiration for the Jewish Festivals by Rabbi Dov Begon
Editor: Rabbi Menachem Weinberg
These short Torah insights on the festivals address the unique challenges and opportunities that emerged with the historic return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel. The author, Rabbi Dov Begon, student of Rabbi Tzvi Yehuda Kook zt”l and founder of the flagship religious Zionist kiruv yeshiva Machon Meir, penned these educational and inspirational messages that are collected here in English for the first time. New festivals such as Jerusalem Day, Israel’s Independence Day (Yom Ha-atzma’ut), and Memorial Day for the fallen soldiers of Israel are also explored, as well as the yahrzeit of Rav Kook. The Jewish holidays are all newly appreciated, viewed through the prism of Israel’s modern redemption.
