Pomegranate Time

All over Israel the trees are heavy with pomegranates. This amazing fruit is desirable for its healthy, antioxidant qualities. The word pomegranate, “rimon” in Hebrew, is derived from the Latin words “pomum” (apple) and “granatus” (seeded). We read in Exodus 28:33-34, that the kohanim are told to weave pomegranates into the hem of their robes, and right up to today, Jews eat pomegranates on Rosh Hoshanah (New Year) for its symbolism of fruitfulness, knowledge, learning, and wisdom. Some even claim it was the “forbidden fruit” in the garden of Eden. A search on the internet produces a wealth of interesting articles (and great recipes).
You can make juice, shakes, cocktails, jams, jellies, marinades and sauces for lamb or chicken, throw it over your cereal, mix it into yogurt, or toss it into a salad for a marvelous taste. The culinary ideas are endless, as are the stories. One interesting story is about the link to the 613 “mitzvahs” (commandments) of the Torah. It is said that if you count the seeds in a pomegranate you will find exactly 613–one for each mitzvah. If anyone takes the time–let us know how many you found! Good Health and Good Eating!

October 12th—A Day of Infamy

The following article was written by Professor Phyllis Chesler–Please read the entire post .
Palestinians Celebrate SpillingJewish Blood
Do you remember where you were ten years ago on October 12th? That was the day that al-Qaeda bombed the USS Cole in Yemen. Seventeen sailors died in the attack.
But also on the very same day–two Israeli reservists, Vadim Norzich z”l, and Josef Avrahami, z”l, were lynched in the most barbaric fashion when they lost their way in Ramallah, which was the late Yasir Arafat’s headquarters.
I will never forget that day. That was the precise moment–and it preceded 9/11 by eleven months–that I knew, really knew, that the bloody beast was back, that we had entered an era of unending bloodshed. Over and over again, the footage was shown of the murderers who tortured, mutilated, and disemboweled the two Israelis, smiling like madmen, proudly displaying their hands smeared with Jewish blood. And how the Palestinian crowds cheered for them.
I watched them all, dancing in the blood of my people, partying like ghouls. No broadcaster, no well coiffed Talking Head drew back in horror. They showed these scenes but did not condemn them. International human rights activists and intellectuals remained silent, as did the entire United Nations.
Please read the entire article. If you are bold enough view the videos and pictures that are posted at the links below. After ten years things have only become worse. Why? Pray for God to put the answer in your heart. WWII gained momentum because good people were silent. The evil that was born in those years is rising again. The difference is the hatred is no longer confined to central Europe, it has spread worldwide and the devils minions are among us all–everywhere. We must not be silent. We must not forget. Never Again!
