Hesed

Welcome Everyone

The L-rd’s lovingkindnesses (ḥesed) indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness. “The L-rd is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore, I have hope in Him.” The L-rd is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him.

(Lamentations 3:22-25)

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty G-d, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore.

(Isaiah 9:6-7a (5-6a))
