“Alijah” is Hebrew meaning to ascend or go up. Our Jewish friends will tell you that when they travel to Israel they are doing “Alijah”; they are “going up” to Israel. Based on the ancient teaching that the center of the world is Israel, the center of Israel - Jerusalem, the center of Jerusalem - the Temple and at the center of the Temple; the Holy of Holies; that is where the presence of God resides. One always goes up to God. True, God journeys down to meet us and be with us. But it is also true, for us to meet God we need to go “up” to be with him. For our relationship with God to deepen, it invariably involves some “up hill”. Journey with Pastor George in this set of teachings as he leads us in Alijah– you’ll be stretched but we’re sure it’s well worth the “climb”.
