  • Resurrection hope.

    How calamity is followed by redemption in God’s calendar. by Charles Gardner. I was greatly shocked to hear of Yolanda Diaz, a Spanish Deputy Prime Minister, ending a speech on the Gaza War with the genocidal slogan “Palestine will be free from the river to the sea”.1 This of course is the Hamas chant that […]

  • The Fence is Creaking.

    NOW EVERYTHING CHANGES – Review by Charles Gardner. When a Palestinian flag is discovered flying on top of a remote hill in England’s beautiful Lake District, something is surely amiss.

  • Backing a death cult.

    The big question for the general election: What think ye of God’s elect? by Charles Gardner.

  • Torah portion from Jerusalem.

    7th June 2024. By Joseph Shulam. We are starting the Torah reading this Shabbat with the Book of Numbers. The names of the books of the Bible are very different in the Hebrew Bible than in the translations to other languages. Usually, the Hebrew names are taken from the Book’s first words. Genesis is Bereshit, […]
