Jews and Lions


"The Beit haMikdash is called a lion… The monarchy of David is called a lion… Israel is called a lion… Nevuchadnezzar is called a lion. He destroyed the Temple and took the monarchy of David and exiled Israel, and so Gd said, "Where is the home of the lions," where are my children? And then He roars for His home."

(Midrash, Shemot Rabbah 29:9)

Have a great day,
