Our friends at Israel21c created a list of the top 8 reasons to love Israel this autumn!

Check out the first two on the list below, or read the full list here.

1. Apples and honey

Israelis gobble an estimated 15,000 tons of apples and about 1,600 tons of honey during the month of Rosh Hashana. That’s because Jews across the world wish for a sweet new year by munching on apples dipped in honey.

Some 118,000 tons of apples are harvested from August through November in the Galilee and Golan Heights. The largest Israeli grower, Beresheet, produces Jonathan, Granny Smith, Starking (Hermon), Pink Lady, Golden Delicious and Gala varieties.

2. Half a billion beautiful birds

Every November and April, at least 500 million birds of more than 500 different species pass through Israel on their way to and from Africa, Asia and Europe. One of the best places to witness this amazing sight is the Agamon Hula Ornithology and Nature Park.
