Greetings My Friends,
Over the past 71 trips to Israel, my wife, Rosemary Schindler Garlow has received a beautiful array of Biblical treasures, some very expensive and some lesser expensive, but precious artifacts from the Holy Land. We call it “Rosemary’s Israel Items.”
Many of you would appreciate the heritage and value of having something from Israel. We would be honored to send them to those of you who would like to donate to our ministry.
Well Versed has been hosting at least two tours a year to Israel, however with the world’s current shutdown, we are postponing our tours until later this year. Please click here to review our October 16 to 29, 2020 itinerary.
Since we cannot bring you to Israel this month, we would like to bring a small part of Israel to you. We have almost 350 separate items – from large to tiny.
Let Israel come to you who graciously donate to Well Versed.
The month of May is important. The modern State of Israel came into being when David Ben Gurion declared it to be an independent nation at midnight on May 14, 1948. In 2017, the U.S.A. finally moved our Embassy to Jerusalem. In honor of Israel’s 72 birthday and the nations turning toward Zion, we would like to offer a rather nice and meaningful gift from “Rosemary’s Israel Items.”
Her collection has effectively two types of tallits: the regular Jewish one, and the Messianic one that Christians would be more inclined to use. Both are wonderful and significant in meaning.
|GIFT NO. 1 – THE MESSIANIC TALLIT (PRAYER SHAWL)TO ANYONE WHO GIVES $100 OR MORE|
|We owe much to the Jewish people for the rich meaning of the tallit. It represents God’s glorious presence, protection and empowerment upon our lives. It was given first on Mount Sinai at the Feast of Shavuot and again fulfilled in Jerusalem 50 days after Messiah Yeshua rose from the grave. |
While supply lasts, we will send you this uniquely made Messianic tallit. Notice the tassels on the corners and the important blue string.
The Jewish prayer shawl, a tallit, is a holy garment designed by God.He instructed His people through Moses in Numbers 15:38-41.
GIFT NO. 2 – THE REGULAR TALLIT (PRAYER SHAWL)TO ANYONE WHO GIVES $50 TO $99
While supply lasts, we will send a prayer shawl to anyone who makes a donation of $50 to $99 for this regular tallit.
Jewish men wear their tallit when in prayer as part of developing an intimate relationship with God. It is their portable “prayer tent, or closet.” It is usually made of wool, with blue stripes across each end. It reminds the wearer that God is always with them. And in order to obey His commandments, they must be “well versed.” Prayer shawls are also worn by women, usually more elaborate. They are presented on life’s special occasions – births, bar mitzvahs, birthdays, weddings, and are also a person’s burial shroud.
YOU WILL ALSO RECEIVE THIS SPECIAL CARD WITH TALLIT #1 & #2
The original artwork is found at Magdala (near present day Migdal, Israel) and is titled “Encounter” painted by Daniel Cariola. Magdala is believed to be the hometown of Mary Magdalene.
As long as supply lasts, we will also provide each person who receives a prayer shawl, this postcard. The miracle healing of “woman with the issue of blood” is mentioned in three of the Gospels—Mark, Luke, and Matthew. This Jewish woman, daughter of the Covenant, reached out to touch the fringes of Jesus’ prayer shawl, His tallit. Every Jewish person understood that she was calling on her covenant promise with Yahweh in this act of faith. The fringes on the hem of His garment represent all the scriptural teachings and covenant promises that every observant Jew understood. Her healing happened as soon as she touched the “hem of Jesus’ garment” and He instantly knew her divine promise to healing was delivered. She was “well versed” in the Torah and her courageous act was acknowledged by Jesus when He addressed he as “daughter,” meaning of daughter of Abraham.
“When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed… He said to her, ‘Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.'” – Mark 5:28-29;34 (NIV)
