Today is the 16th day of the month of Shevat. On this day in 1969, Yasser Arafat was appointed leader of the Palestine Liberation Organization or PLO at the meeting of the Palestine National Council in Cairo. Arafat would remain the organization’s leader until his death in 2004.
The PLO was founded 5 years before Arafat took over. The organization was looked at as a terrorist organization by both Israel and America until the Madrid Conference in 1991. In 1993, the PLO recognized Israel’s right to exist and denounced the terrorism that it had been so much a part of. This led to billions of dollars of aid to the PLO which Arafat both pocketed and directed to the terrorists. Arafat would never allow an audit of the money that he received. By the year 2000, the relationship between Israel and the PLO had completely deteriorated back to where it was before 1991.
The situation has only regressed since then to the point where on October 29, 2018, the Palestinian Central Council suspended its recognition of Israel, and halted all security and economic coordination. The PLO has been labeled the ‘richest of all terrorists organizations.’ Much of the credit for this ongoing hatred lies on the shoulders of Yasser Arafat, and his 35 years of disservice to the arabs in the middle east and to the world.

Matzah bread also known to us as the holy communion bead, or unleavened bread. It is bread made without yeast.
Made of flour, olive oil and water, baked in an oven, pierced with holes to prevent the bread from building up air in the dough while in the oven.
Jesus is the bread of life (John 6:32, Luke 22:19) Jesus is a Hebrew, Matzah is bread for the Hebrews, so, the Matzah represents Jesus.
So then, if the Matzah is Jesus, lets study how bread is made. To start with, we should go back to the beginning. How grain was harvested to make flour. After gathering in the grain, it will be threshed. Threshing – process which grain is broken apart into wheat (Kernels), chaff (husk), straw (stalks). It can be done by beating with a stick or at the threshing floor with animals dragging a sledge with stones, spikes attached; Jesus was beaten with a cat -o-nine -tails at the scourging post. A violent process. (Psalm 22:17)
After winnowing to further remove other elements from the grain, the grain will be fed through a millstone, 2 round stones, grinding the grain into fine flour – bruised, crushed heads of grain.
Once done, the flour is mixed with olive oil and water, kneaded into dough, flattened and pierced – His head pierced by the crown of thorns, hands and feet are pierced by rusty iron nails at the cross, His side was pierced at the cross. (John19:34, Zech 12:10)
Surely our sicknesses he hath borne, and our pains -he hath carried them, and we -we have esteemed him plagued, Smitten of God, and afflicted.
And he is pierced for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, The chastisement of our peace [is] on him, And by his bruise there is healing to us.
So, the Matzah, is for our healing – the scourging, bruises and piercing, signify our sickness and pains has been borne and the fire of God’s wrath fell on Jesus, burning these and our sins into ashes - that’s why the oven, and burnt marks on the Matzah (Hebrew 8:12)
Look at the holy comm bread w new eyes, discern it rightly and partake your way into divine health!

My dears, now I'll tell you something, that you will not accept at first, and then you’ll think and will agree.
And I'll tell you "Shabbat shalom!".
Perhaps you will be surprised by these words. Or maybe you will think that something is wrong with me. But wait a moment, do not rush. The thing is that Friday is festive this week, which means it’s strict and impossible to write - otherwise it will be bad. And anyone who writes, as well as to those who read (gadgets and other evil) – all of them the heavenly accuser will write out the bill.
So you, please, understand me correctly with my congratulations on Shabbat on Thursday. If it’s restricted to do tomorrow, but today it’s allowed, then have my honest, sincere Shabbat Shalom today and be well!
On Sunday morning, run to the cafe: breads, rolls, pancakes and other donuts so much you were longed for, that they were thin.
And I, with the words "Lord, how delicious!", A couple of times crunching a manna from heaven! Well, that is matzah. And, perhaps, I need a little wine with that. And what. A good idea! The mere thought of it gets me exited!

Pistachio Chocolate Caramel Matzo Crack for Passover. I’m lucky, I get to celebrate all the holidays. My mother is Jewish and my dad was raised celebrating the Christian holidays. I’ve got culinary attachments to all of them. I didn’t grow up eating Matzo Crack, but it’s become a yearly tradition after my co-author, Jeff, introduced me to it 15 years ago. I even made it for @inagarten, at a cookie swap at her house. Yep, you read That right. Swipe to see the MASSIVE grin on my face, as captured by @quentinbaconphoto! It was a day I’ll never forget. You can watch me make the addictive Matzo treat in my stories and will find a link to the recipe in my profile. #passover#holiday#recipeoftheday#matzo#matzah#kosher#inagarten
Matzoh Crack S’mores! Because today is #nationalsmoresday (who knew) and I am a BIG fan. I have videos in my highlights for both Matzoh Crack and Homemade Marshmallows. Both things are on my deserted island list, along with a sparkling rosé and the Brothers Karamazov (it’s the best soap opera ever written!) and a good hat (woman of a certain age). Link to recipe in bio. #recipeoftheday#imsomartha#smores#matzah#matzo#marshmallow
