Title: The Seven Healing Fruits of Israel

Title: The Seven Healing Fruits of Israel

Author: Shoshana Harrari

 


 


        Nutritional and Health Counselor Shoshanna Harrari is a beloved fixture on Israel’s organic foods scene. The 2007 publication of her book is being re­ceived with many open arms and wide eyes in the Holy Land and abroad.


 


         A beautifully packaged font of food information in 200 pages, packed with insights about the healing properties of G‑d’s gift to mankind, the book is sooth­ing to the eyes and good for your whole body.

 

         The author points out a very relevant Torah insight on page five. “The passage from Deuteronomy 8:7-8 was given over to us to reveal certain impor­tant aspects of this new yet ancient land. For some reason, G‑d felt it very important for us to take spe­cial notice of seven species of fruit, grasses and grains, as well as bountiful springs and streams of water. That somehow they were special, set apart and had properties of healing within them.”

 

         This is her launching point for presenting other Torah passages that teach attentive readers about what and how to eat: seed-bearing produce in moderation and to drink sufficient amounts of clean water (a “rain from Heaven”). Augmented with docu­mented scientific information, Harrari makes a com­pelling case for eating Hashem’s “recommended” diet.

 

         The Seven Healing Fruits of Israel contains chapters about each of the special species, a chapter about water and recipes for preparing meals that please the eye as much as the mouth.

 

         The Water chapter includes a few of Japanese researcher Masuru Emoto’s unusually prepared pho­tographs of water. The pictures display the results of reciting blessings over water (startlingly beautiful) and the polar opposite: water exposed to words of hate (you’ll cringe when you see these pictures).

 

         The parchment-colored pages and capitalized font throughout the book make an impression on the mind. That impression is one of gentle revelation and an inviting opportunity to enhance your dining experi­ence. Even the words of Ezekiel 40:1, 47:2-12 will come across gently, sweetly and with enticing flavor.

 

         Vivid photographs of Israeli plant life by Shoshanna’s husband, Micah (a maker of biblical harps), compliment the text. There are more pleasant surprises between the covers of this charmingly illus­trated book.

 

         Despairing over your inexplicable weight? Want to improve your skin tone or lower your blood pressure without medication? Need to improve your resistance to illness and your ability to heal? Treat yourself to The Seven Healing Fruits of Israel.

Interestingly, sometimes people who have a very high self-awareness may experience intense reactions to circumstances that others might respond to more mildly.

“You Touro graduates are automatically soldiers in [Israel’s] struggle, and we count on you,” Rothstein told the graduates.

The lemonana was something else. Never had we seen a green drink look so enticing.

On his marriage, he wrote: “This is what I believe: something of the core, of the essence of this meaningful and life-affirming Judaism will not be absent from our home” (1882).

With the recent kidnapping by the Hamas and the barbaric murder of three children – Gilad Shaar, Eyal Yifrach and Naftali Frankel, we believe that the best answer to honor the memory of those murdered is to continue building those very communities – large and small – that our enemies are trying to destroy.

Written entirely through Frayda’s eyes, the reader is drawn by her unassuming personality.

Adopting an ancient exegetical approach that is based on midrashic readings of the text, thematic connections that span between various books of the Bible are revealed.

While Lipman comes from an ultra-Orthodox background and is an Orthodox rabbi, he offers a breath of fresh air when he suggests that “polarization caused by extremism and isolationism in the religious community may be the greatest internal threat to the future of the Jewish people”

Tehilim 71:9 reads “Do not cast me off in the time of old age; Do not forsake me when my strength fails.” The message is apropos to the endeavor – wonder and spirituality ruled as respect for aging heroes of the Shoah increased among Leo Baeck students.

Author: Irving Langer

Breathe deeply. You’ll need maximum physical and spiritual power to absorb the uplifting lessons in this book. Page 249 explains why some Jews are praised as “fish on dry land,” a phrase that describes Moshe Rabeinu. Am Yisrael began to appreciate his depth of character at kriat Yam Suf, realizing that “he lived in the revealed world as though he were in the concealed world.”

Author Irving Langer provides his own look at wine-making as well as the nature of the storage barrels used to age wines for taste perfection. He intersperses the book with Jewish historical facts and figures, a few jokes and photographs, and advice on how to pair wines with specific foods.

Unlike formulaic biographies from popular publishing houses in the Orthodox Jewish world, Beyond Politics is not predictable. The vignettes of individual men and women who trekked through Ethiopia and Sudan, flew in from Austria, India, and Algeria, or were born on Israeli soil are gritty, adventurous, and heartwarming.

Most of the No-Potato Passover recipes are as casual as the title’s spelling: some include only six ingredients and limited prep time – half to one full hour. They’re good for heart health and waistlines, too.

The Hebrew-English haggada provides a wealth of photographic evidence of the lives led by Ethiopian Jews. The pottery, the unembellished homes, school, and synagogues, the gaunt Jews in modest clothing and head coverings portray dedication to Torah values despite harsh political and topographical conditions.
