We hope you will enjoy the wealth of poetic "God-Praising" talent we have at MLC.Each day in the Bible begins in the "evening" and ends in the "morning" (Genesis [Bereishit] 1).The "evening" part of the "day of the L-rd" (the Messianic Age/Athid Lavo) is the tribulation/birth pangs of the Messiah (Chevlai shel Mashiach).In Ecclesiastes (Kohelet) 1:9 it is written: Traditional Judaism understands that the first 6,000 years is known as the present age/world (Olam Hazeh).These first 6,000 years are divided into three 2,000-year periods of time or ages.
