Lichvod Devorah Hanevia, a'h, LESHEM SHAMAYIM

So many are so excited that we have the zchut and now is the time, B'H, to begin preparation for Moshiach's Arrival. Jacob L. is donating a year's worth of beeswax candles for the Ner Tamid, "Her name is Devorah and just like bees know how to pull out the the sweetness of every flower of the Gan so too Bzchus Devorah Hanavia, she'll pull out all the Nekudos Tovos from Klal Yisrael".

Jacob also wrote the Shira and in addition to the beeswax, is donating a plaque of Shirat Devorah to be placed in the Tzion.
B'h, many are donating and this is one of the most exciting spiritual projects we are zoche to be part of. On Shabbat, I was reading about Kever Rochel Imenu, a'h. In the book, it said that the actual "tomb" consists of a rock with eleven stones upon it, one for each of the eleven sons of Yaakov Avinu, zs'l, who were alive when Rachel Imenu died in childbirth. In 1841, Sir Moses Montefiore, zs'l, received a permit from the Turkish authorities, who recognized the place as the holy property of the Jews, to repair Rachel's Tomb.
How lucky and special we are that we not only are building a Kever for Devorah HaNevia, a'h, but even more, we are actually building her Tzion, for the first time. What a zchut HaShem is bestowing on us to be able to participate in this very very special holy Mitzvah. All donations and work is ONLY LESHEM SHAMAYIM.
