If you love Israel, Bible study and current events (to name a few), you really gotta visit Chabad.org!
The site offers many more than seven free perks. I'm sharing seven of the ones I used almost daily. For the last month, most of my mornings start with coffee and this website. It's become my fav cyber-hangout during daily Bible study.
Below, are the seven and after, I'll highlight two of my favorites and why they might end up being your favorites too.
Let’s start with why fifth on the list is so important.
One of the tools provided is the Hebrew translation of any scripture in the Old Testament. Hebrew is, from my perspective, the most wonderful language of man. It’s beautiful to hear and is fluid, meaning the words for numbers are also for the alphabet, as well as positions for prayer and in written form, emulate positions for the ancient Hebrew martial art positions.
There’s more to the language, but those are some important highlights.
Because of those aspects, reading the Bible via the Hebrew translation has opened up whole new layers of the Old Testament in Bible study for me, and will for you too.
The feature is so easy to use, just put any Old Testament scripture in the search bar, and the site will open it for you, allowing you to read it in the fashion you prefer.
Pics are below to show you where to access the feature.
Specific Old Testament scripture can be searched and loaded via the search bar, top right, on the main page.
When the page populates, select your reading preference.
From there your scripture text will open with English on the left and Hebrew on the right.
You can read forward or go backward, via the selections at the bottom of the page.
Parsha (weekly Torah) and Haftarah
This section is equally loved and I review it at the beginning of each week. It’s significant in ways many of us might have not been aware of until reading Jonathan Cahn’s Harbinger Series. The info in that book shook me enough to put these scripture selections in the top-tier of my weekly task schedule.
To navigate to it, from the site's Home/Landing page, hover under the Learning & Values tab, then on the Parshah (Weekly Torah) in the sub-menu. From there, click on the Current Parsha link.
On the next page that populates, the reading selection will be on the right.
Hope you’ve enjoyed the mini-tour of Chabad.org, and will visit it soon. It's too wonderful of a resource to not use regularly. If you've got friends who enjoy bible-based history and current events affecting the Judeo-Christian communities, please share a link to this post with them.
Thank you for your visit and your support of a citizen-journalist site!
Also, if you haven’t read The Harbinger Series, I encourage you to do so. I have reviews of two, linked for you on the Reviews Quick List, here on By the Way... I read the first book of the series long before I developed this site, but will soon be including a description and review for it here as well. Meanwhile, you can find two of them here, just check the list for Jonathan Cahn/Harbinger Series.
‘Til next time,
