“For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good landa land with brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out into the valleys and hills” (Deuteronomy 8:7)

In this photo taken in the Holy Land in 1939 – pre-statehood Israel – Israeli farmers work the land God gave them. Here, they carry cattle fodder on camels – to dry land across “Alexander Stream” near Kibbutz Kfar Vitkin. The kibbutz guard rides along behind, keeping watch. Shabbat shalom, friends.
