Wow, this is really good and helpful. I’ve been a part of the Hebrew Roots Movement for over 30 years. My family came into it when I was in my early teens. I am just now coming out the other side.

Thank you and I am happy that it was helpful to you. I have put a lot of my teachings about Israel into one long section, here is the link if you ever want to browse over it.
