Hashem describes the Land of Israel to Moses as “a land flowing with milk and honey.” Milk and honey share a paradoxical quality. Milk, which is kosher and permitted to be consumed by Jews, is produced by cows, whose meat is also kosher and permitted to be eaten by Jews. On the other hand, honey which is a kosher food, is produced by honey-bees which are non-kosher insects and forbidden to be consumed by Jews. The bounty of the Land of Israel will come from a cow, a kosher animal, and a honey-bee a non-kosher insect! From this we can learn that the goodness of Israel will often come from places where is least expected. Today, we see the words of the Bible coming to life as the Land of Israel is indeed flowing with milk and honey. Israel is home to many thriving bee farms that produce delicious and award-winning honey. Unfortunately, these bee farms have not been spared from Arab terrorism. Two weeks ago, Arab terrorists ransacked an award-wining bee farm and honey factory in Samaria stealing its equipment and killing every bee on the farm. The Israel 365 Charity Fund is working to restore the bee farm to its former glory in time for the Jewish New Year. Partner with us in helping the devastated owners ensure that the Land continues to flow with milk and honey.
Yael Farbstein had a dream of bringing to life Israel’s blessing as a land flowing with honey. But that dream came crashing to the ground two weeks ago when a group of Arab vandals broke into her honey factory, stealing precious equipment and causing extensive damage. But worst of all, the thieves stole every last jar of honey, an entire season’s worth of labour and love. Then they plugged up the remaining beehives in the fields, leaving the bees to die in the summer heat. Donate Now »
