Shalom y'all, it's me Jonathan! I've been away for a little bit but I haven't forgot about you. ❤️ You're about to see more videos from me really soon. I've been working with Izzy, behind the scenes, getting a new series up and going. So be watching for our announcement about a fun new way to go through Hebrew Scripture.
Which gets me to the video that just went public on YouTube - our Mantra video! "What's a mantra?" you may be asking. It's our mission statement, a description of who we are and what we do. Ours is "following Yeshua in a Hebrew way, together!" The key word for me is "connecting". Connecting to Yeshua, connecting together as a tribe, and connecting all this together through the holy language of Hebrew.
I hope you have the same passions as I do, and well if you do, there is a tribe just for you. But don't just take it from me, watch the video here (or at the bottom of this email) and see some of the other smiling faces that you belong with. And come join us at holylanguage.com!
I hope you enjoy the rest of this digest. And if there's anything on your mind, just hit reply. We're here for you!

For Hebrew Sketches we discussed the question Why is "raisin cake" the best pet name ever? and talked about how man and woman, husband and wife, mortality, fire, the pupil of the eye, wisdom, success, raisin cakes, and the simple act of being there are related Watch it here!
And for Hebrew Verses, we read through Matthew 23:31-39. A couple of the things we touched on: Yeshua's expectation that his movement would have sages and scribes - in other words, that at its core it would stay Jewish. Why Tel Aviv airport signs proclaim the first half of "blessed is he who comes in the name of Adonai". Watch it here!
