Connecting to Israel Through the Seven Species

By Laura Tinter

Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), Fall 2007

A passage in Deuteronomy describes the Seven Species (sheva minim): wheat, barley, grapes (vines), figs, pomegranates, olives, and dates (honey). By teaching these Seven Species to our students, and by exploring them throughout the year as they relate to Jewish holidays, we can deepen our holiday experiences, as well as develop and maintain a constant connection to the Land of Israel in our classrooms.
