Shalom,

Bring more boxes, please. We need many more boxes (liquor boxes are perfect) for our move. Yes, Shomair is moving. We have sold our current building (and yes, the house where I live too). The buyer of our building is going to rent the house back to me at a very favorable rent as long as necessary. We are so very thankful.

Rabbi Trail: If you can go to the back of almost any liquor store, they will usually put their empty boxes out back because they know people like to use them. Please do not buy full cases of liquor for this purpose (so you can bring us the empty boxes). Not to mention emptying the bottles into yourself may be harmful to your health. Emptying them into the sink may be harmful to the fishes.

I will write more about the move soon. Pray for us. We will be closing escrow on the 22nd and our first service will be December 29th.

The Lord is calling His people to a high standard of love. God’s love has 3 Greek names, philia (brotherly love), amore (romantic love), and agape (there does not appear to be one word for this faithful, benevolent, selfless, sacrificial and unconditional love).

Hear the words of Yeshua: John 13:34 “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, so also you must love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

And this from 1John 4:7 Loved ones, let us love one another, for love is from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

Love you all, R. Michael.
