Israel’s True Identity and Vocation The title for this talk, Israel’s True Identity and Vocation, comes from an article by Dr. Gregory Vall published in The Thomist, April I thank Dr. Vall for his important article on the identity of Israel, which I strongly recommend for further study.   Paul places the later covenant with Moses on the mountain of Sinai. It was the covenant that gave us the Jewish people, centered on the Palestinian city of Jerusalem. He tells us that Jerusalem at that time was in slavery, but that the true Jerusalem is “on high” and is free. The word for work in Hebrew, avodah, is the same used for prayer. Avodah connotes service. (It is also the word for slavery, which is involuntary service.) Work is not only a necessary part of life, it is a form of service to the world, to the rest of humanity, and to God. We are meant to be of Author: Rabbi Michael Strassfeld.
