Thank You, Elisha Manning

The New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning's full first name is Elisha.

Elisha was a prophet, the assistant of Eliyahu.

Elisha the son of Shaphat is here, who poured water on the hands of Elijah

And what were the locations in the Land of Israel in which he lived and acted?

As we read in II Kings 2:-

Abel-meholah in the Jordan Valley

Jericho

Samaria

Beth El

Gilgal

Shunem

Those locations, and others he visited, are not in some 'West Bank', which I would term an "illegal designation", but in Eretz-Yisrael, the Land of Israel, and particularly in Judea and Samaria, the heartland of the Jewish national homeland. And even across the Jordan River.

Elisha himself is described in II Kings 5:3 as

 the prophet that is in Samaria

Eli, 




thanks for the reminder.
