To bring us cheer in honor of Purim, Gil and Ayelet of Kibbutz Samar stopped by Chubeza to replenish our stock of their perfectly delectable dates. Currently we have two varieties to offer: “Barhi,” incredibly sweet and soft, and “Dekel Nur,” slightly drier and mild-tasting. We’ll be delighted to send them to you to include in your Mishlochei Manot, or for everyday merrymaking.

And, in Purim’s honor as well, we are doing a small “nahafochu” by not writing a Newsletter this week. We can just tell you that our field was blessed with plentiful quantities of rain throughout the recent storm, and we are now reveling in mammoth quantities of mud.

We invite you to look back and enjoy previous Purim Newsletters here and here.

May you have a week abounding with happiness, laughter, healthy frivolity, pranks, and lots of friends and family to share these with!

Happy Purim from us all—Alon, Bat-Ami and the entire Chubeza team
