Photo Friday in the olive fields – Amazing!

Olives and Israel have gone hand in hand since biblical times!

The olive branch as the symbol of peace, olive oil burning menorahs, and tzedakah (charity) boxes and yads (torah pointers) made from the wood of the olive tree demonstrate just a few of the many uses for olives in Jewish faith and culture.

I am like a green olive tree in the House of God; I trust in the love of God for ever and ever” (Psalms 52:10).

Rabbi's Commentary
God Is Present This Holy Season

Even as efforts for peace seem to be at an impasse all around the world, the Passover story can give us hope and affirmation that God is always present in our lives, and even when situations seem impossible, He is working in ways we cannot imagine.
