Ki Yachol Nuchal!

New olah; mom and wife. In small ways, every day, trying to rectify the error in judgement of my zaydies, the meraglim. "See these big grapes? We can make really big wine!"

Gifts of the Land: a study in relativity

Posted by rutimizrachi on 09/09/2008


Yom shlishi, 9 Elul 5768/9 September 2008, Tuesday.

Yesterday, the Dearly Beloved returned from a trip up to the Golan, bearing stories and gifts.

He and the Stunt Man (the 16-year-old) had climbed to the Black Falls and to the White Falls without enough water, but with a great deal of intestinal fortitude. They had a great time, bonding as father and son.

The figs were delicious, tasting of shmitta-kedusha, warm summer mountain winds, and sun-drenched earth.

As I appreciated my lovely figs, carried lovingly from one of my favorite places in the world, I thought of gifts I would receive from trips around Baltimore. Once again, I have an opportunity to be grateful for the move to the Holy Land. 😉 Baruch ata Hashem al ha-aretz v’al peyroteiha!
