Distributing Blessings ✡ “Blessings Are On The Head Of The One Who Dispenses It” – Israel365

He who withholds grain earns the curses of the people, But blessings are on the head of the one
who dispenses it.

מֹנֵעַ בָּר יִקְּבֻהוּ לְאוֹם וּבְרָכָה לְרֹאשׁ מַשְׁבִּיר

משלי יא:כו

Today’s Israel Inspiration

Israel was intended to be an agrarian society. The Torah strengthens the people’s connection to the Land of Israel through various agricultural celebrations, commemorations, and obligations.  The Torah commands the Israelites to set aside a certain portion of their crops grown in the Land of Israel for the poor. The corners of their fields, the forgotten sheaves and the grains that fall during harvest are all to be left for the needy. This Biblical imperative is still practiced in Israel today. Each season, farmers throughout Israel leave millions of pounds of produce from their fields, which are collected by volunteers and distributed to poor people all over the country. Meir Panim is an organization that focuses on this imperative by ensuring that Israel’s hungry are taken care of through a series of food and welfare programs. Meir Panim works tirelessly to meet the needs of the weakest segments of Israeli society: children, single mothers, Holocaust survivors, and the elderly.

Meir Panim provides both immediate and long-term relief to the impoverished of Israel via a dynamic range of food and social service programs.

Major Charity Operation Launches Crowdfunding Campaign to Support Israel’s Needy

To help Israel’s needy and raise funds for keeping Meir Panim’s network of social welfare programs in Israel successfully running, the organization launched a crowdfunding campaign on September 11.

The Significance of the ‘Seven Species’

The Creator of the world singled out seven species of fruit and grain from the Land of Israel as being particularly blessed. Over the centuries, many have sought to explain the special significance of the ‘Seven Species,’ known as the שבעת המינים in Hebrew (shee-VAT ha-mee-NEEM). Each one contains healthful nutrients that benefit the body and promote wellness. Shivat Natural Cosmetics combine all-natural ingredients and extracts of the Seven Species to bring you skin-supportive cleansing soaps and beauty products that bring you closer not only to nature, but also to the Holy Land.
