Sukkot Harvest – Shmuel Picking Dates – Fun 1m video

One of the amazing surprises about living in “farm country” in Israel is that I’ve begun to appreciate that Chag HaSukkot is Chag Ha-asif (The festival of the autumn harvest).

In Toronto we davened that it wouldn’t snow on our Sukkah. In Yavne’el, in addition to all the other preparations for the holiday, we get to harvest our own date crop!

We have two varieties on our property, the golden Bahri, and the light brown Halawi.

Here’s a fun 1 minute video of Shmuel trying to pick the dates with an extension pruner.

Come visit Villa Rimona Zimmers soon and you can try some. They’re yummy.

Chag Samayach!
