Growing avocado trees on the Gaza border

Now that the winter rains have subsided, Israeli farmers on the Gaza border are starting their Spring Planting. Many are making the desert grow and thrive by planting new avocado trees. Despite the missiles from Gaza recently, they continue to develop the Negev.

A model seder for foreign diplomats

The Israel branch of the World Jewish Congress held a model Passover seder at the Carlton Hotel in Tel Aviv in honor of 30 foreign ambassadors and journalists stationed in Israel. The Ambassador of Honduras found the afikoman and was given a souvenir depicting Jerusalem as his prize.

Israeli democracy is the winner

Israeli citizens went to the polls to vote for their 21st Knesset in the 71-year history of the Modern State of Israel. It was an exciting event without any hint of violence despite the closeness of the result. https://worldisraelnews.com/watch-netanyahu-celebrates-as-israel-hands-him-a-fifth-term/

Israeli farm of blessings

In Israel’s Gush Etzion region, Beit Bracha Mitzvot Farm offers Jews visiting Israel the opportunity to fulfill Biblical commandments than can only be performed within the boundaries of the Land of Israel. They include planting wheat and olive trees, tending to vineyards, and taking the proper tithes.
