At the height of the “Tishrei” Holidays – New year’s behind us, Sukkot & Simchat Torah lie ahead
In this very season 20 years ago, we took our first steps in our first plot of earth in Kfar Bin Nun. The field was organic, cultivated for over a decade by the late Chaim Pocher and his wife Liora (may she be blessed with long life), who both pioneered organic farming in Israel. In the years before we arrived, the field had lay fallow due to Chaim’s ill health. Fierce two-meter-high thorns and weeds covered the plot. That gladdened our hearts, for this was a clear sign of a fertile, happy plot which could also grow crops.
