MFP 121 : Lessons Learned from our Jewish Brethren

   As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
the Lord surrounds his people,
Both now and forever. Psalm 125:2

The power of a name, the importance of memory, the responsibility to heal the world, the reality that God dwells with us – all of these are lessons that we as Catholics can learn from the Jewish people. At the end of October 2019, we had the privilege of being guests of the Foundation Stone Institute who hosted us for a trip to Israel and the holy sites there. We had a powerful experience visiting the places where Jesus lived, worked, preached and healed. The trip gave us a deeper understanding of our Catholic faith, but also of the Jewish people, our “elder brethren”. There were many insights that we had and lessons learned, but in this podcast, we decided to limit ourselves to four things that we walked with that we think families can benefit from. These values have been held by the Jewish people for centuries and we can and should learn from them.
