My name is Miriam Yisrael,
I came from Portugal to Israel for the first time
May 1992 and had a special experience with God
I felt that God was calling me to live in Jerusalem , to
come to the city I belong, to come to my routs.
This experience was so strong that I felt as if I was
born here and coming home.
After this strong calling of
God in 92' I started to
feel very uncomfortable in Portugal,
the country when
I was born and lived all my life.
After 92' my heart was only in Jerusalem and I started
to paint in Portugal the beautiful city where God touched
me, which was Jerusalem.
In three years I come again
another six times to Jerusalem
and the call of God was
very strong in my life.
In 1995 I left Portugal at last
to live in Jerusalem.
I come alone, living behind my family,
job of being
an art teacher, beautiful house and I
come to start a new life
trusting in God by faith,
not seeing the future, but only
believing on the spiritual
purposes that God had for my life
I did "aliah" and I become a citizen of Israel.
In the first two years I study Tora with Rabis
and at the some time I went every day outside near the Western
Wall painting by inspiration of God - all the spiritual pictures
I paint until now.
From 1995 I am still near the Western Wall praying and painting
the Holy books of God in the place when in 92' I had the call
from God to come here.
Today from that place God blesses's the world with my paintings
and I am very gratefull to God for my spiritual job in Jerusalem
painting for Him and giving back to God the talent he gives to me
for the reason to bless His name and to bless the world with
I understand now after this five years the purposes and the
reason of the call of God in 92' to come to Jerusalem and being
at home , for the first time in my life , and for this I am
thankfull to God.
