We wanted to remind you that During Chol HaMoed Sukkot, there will be no deliveries, thus you will not be receiving boxes on Monday and Wednesday, the 13th and 15th of October.
Contrary to previous years – This year we are “ignoring” Sukkot week, thus all those of you who receive your boxes every other week will have a 3-week gap in deliveries.
In keeping with our twice-yearly tradition, we invite you for a Chol HaMoed “pilgrimage” to Chubeza to celebrate our Open Day. The Sukkot Open Day will take place this coming Monday, October 13th, the 19th of Tishrei (fourth day of Chol HaMoed), between 12:00-17:00. The incomparable Hazel Hill Band will make their traditional appearance from 12:00, and set our toes to tapping.
The Open Day gives us a chance to meet, tour the field, and nibble on vegetables and other delicacies. Children have their own tailor-made tours, designed for little feet and curious minds, plus special activities and a vast space to run around and loosen up. (So can the adults…) This year we will be using empty toilet paper rolls to create arts & crafts projects. You are most welcome to collect and bring some along to the Open Day.
We will have a vegetable stand and a Melo HaTene fruit stand where you can stock up on goodies for the rest of the holiday. In addition, we will be selling a range of high-quality organic products from our various partners: Manu, the delectable bakerwoman, Pua’h and Oded, our charming goat dairy owners of Meshek 42, and Melissa of Mipri Yadeha, makers of natural dried fruit and leather. You are welcome to meet them, chat, ask questions and taste away.
In the spirit of recycling/upcycling, we suggest two ways to take advantage of Chubeza’s Open Day to lessen our human footprint on the planet: This year we are hosting Galia, who will be selling lovely secondhand clothing (primarily women’s) priced at 50 NIS per item or less. And, nearby at our neighboring Moshav Bet Chashmonai, the traditional secondhand book sale will be held at Itamar’ Book Shop. Every book: 10 NIS! Details here
Updated driving instructions are on our website under “Contact Us.” Please make sure you check this before heading our way.
Wishing you a holiday of happiness. We look forward to seeing you all!
