JNS.org – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday hosted a Bible study session at his official residence in Jerusalem.

The event was named in honor of Shmuel Ben-Artzi, the late father of the prime minister’s wife, Sara Netanyahu.

The annual Bible study event is a tradition dating back to the country’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion. Former Prime Minister Menachem Begin also hosted the event, which Netanyahu and his wife reintroduced four years ago.

The study session was attended by Bat-Galim Shaar, the mother of Gilad Shaar, one of three Israeli teenagers who were abducted and killed by Hamas terrorists in the summer of 2014, igniting a 50-day war in Gaza.

“There is no Jewish existence without the Bible…In my opinion, there is also no Jewish future without the Bible,” Netanyahu said.

    THIS IS AN EXCELLENT TIME TO DISCUSS WHO ARE THE REAL OWNERS OF THIS PRECIOUS LAND ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE,NOW THAT NETANYAHU IS DEALING WITH THE FACTS ACCORDING TO OUR TORAH.PERHAPS ISI LIEBLER COULD DESCRIBE THE ABSOLUTE NECESSITY OF OUR INSISTING ON THE BASIC TRUTH.OTHERWISE HOW WILL PRESIDENT TRUMP BE ABLE TO GET THIS MESSAGE ACROSS UNLESS IT IS PERFECTLY CLEAR THAT WE,THE JEWS ARE THE REAL OWNERS OF THIS G- D GIVEN LAND. WHY ON EARTH WOULD WE WANT TO SHARE THIS LAND WITH PEOPLE WHO DO NOT RESPECT THE TRUTH? MAYBE WE HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THEY “GET IT” !! WOULD PRESIDENT TRUMP GIVE AWAY ANY POSESSION OF HIS TO PEOPLE WHO DO NOT RESPECT HIS GENEROSITY?

    Studying Torah is one thing (and certainly important). But living it is another and really what it’s all about.
