Israel Memorial Day - May 10

Yom Hazikaron, Israeli Memorial Day, is different in its character and mood from the American Memorial Day. The most noticeable feature of the day is the sound of sirens heard throughout the country twice, during which the entire nation observes a two-minute “standstill” of all traffic and daily activities.  Read More...


Shavuot - June 12

In order to fully appreciate what believers now call Pentecost, as awesomely described in Acts 2, let us turn the Bible back to Exodus.

Imagine the scene:  the nation of Israel has been removed from Egypt through God’s mighty right hand.  They have crossed the Red Sea and have sung the song of Moses & Miriam which declares “the horse and rider thrown into the sea” – Exodus 15:21.  They have seen Moses strike the Rock to bring forth water for them to drink.  They are now at the foot of Mount Sinai and are told to prepare for the third day – Exodus 19:11 – where they will hear a bat kol – a Voice from heaven.  Read More...

 A Simple Explanation of Why the Torah Scroll Is Important

The Torah Scroll is the holiest of all documents for the Jewish people. Physically, it may look like nothing more than pieces of parchment sewn together to make a long spool, but this scroll means so much more than meets the eye.

Let's start off with how the Torah scroll is made...

An entire authentic Torah scroll, meticulously written out by hand, takes about a year to complete. It requires trained skill and mastery as even the tiniest error in spelling or lettering will make the entire document invalid.

Composed of 304,805 Hebrew letters, with 42 lines per page, a Torah scroll must be written using the same tools and methods as the ancients more than three thousand years ago.  These include traditional quills and specialized ink. The Jewish scribe who writes the Torah and other religious writings is referred to as a sofer. A sofer must not only have knowledge of at least 4,000 Judaic laws before he can have the authority to transcribe a Torah scroll - he must also bathe in a ritual bath called a mikvah before he can write the four-letter Hebrew name of God.  The mikveh is the Jewish historical root for baptism.  Read more...

Father's House believes so much in the value of the Torah scrolls that we want to share with you small segments of Torah scroll.

Right now, Father's House is gifting frameable segments of Torah scrolls to anyone who, after prayerfully considering the mission of Father’s House Educational Foundation, feels led by the Lord to give a donation of $50 or more.  Read More...
