SEVEN SPECIES OF PLANTS (Shev’at ha Minim)

FRUITS FOR WHICH THE LAND OF ISRAEL IS FAMOUS:

Wheat, Barley, Grapes, Pomegranate, Figs, Honey, Olives.

Each of them has its own meaning:

Wheat is human food. Bread is baked from it, which then becomes part of the human body.

Barley is animal food. Every Jew has a part called the “animal soul”.

Grapes – wine is made from bliss, it helps to be cheerful and strong.

Pomegranate – Jews are “full of commandments, like pomegranate seeds.”

Figs – Adam and Khava “sewed” clothes for themselves from … fig leaves.

Honey – honey, which is described in the Torah, is not ordinary bee honey, it is made from dates.

Olive is a bitter food. Teaches us to work in exile when we feel bitterness that we  are far from the Most High.
