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.

Yom Tov is about spending time with your family. And while for some families the big once-in-a-lifetime experience is great, for others something low key is the way to go.

A fascinating glimpse into the rich complexity of medieval Jewish life and its contemporary relevance had intriguingly emerged.

Dear Dr. Yael:

My heart is breaking; my husband’s friend has gotten divorced. While this type of situation is always sad, here I do believe it could have been avoided.

The plan’s goal is to provide supportive housing to 200 individuals with disabilities by the year 2020.

Despite being one of the fastest-growing Jewish communities in the U.S. – the estimated Jewish population is 70-80,000 – Las Vegas has long been overlooked by much of the Torah world.

She was followed by the shadows of the Six Million, by the ever so subtle awareness of their vanished presence.

Pesach is so liberating (if you excuse the expression). It’s the only time I can eat anywhere in the house, guilt free! Matzah in bed!

Now all the pain, fear and struggle were over and they were home. Yuli was safe and free, a hero returned to his land and people.

While it would seem from his question that he is being chuzpadik and dismissive, I wonder if its possible, if just maybe, he is a struggling, confused neshama who actually wants to come back to the fold.

I agree with the letter writer that a shadchan should respectfully and graciously accept a negative response to a shidduch offer.

Alternative assessments are an extremely important part of understanding what students know beyond the scope of tests and quizzes.

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.

Title: The Kosher Grapevine: Exploring the World of Wine
Author: Irving Langer
Publisher: Gefen

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.
