“Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
    who walk in obedience to him.
You will eat the fruit of your labor;
    blessings and prosperity will be yours.”
(Psalm 128:1-2)

In this photo taken in the Holy Land in 1947, a year before Israel’s independence, a Jewish woman picks the fruit of her people’s labor. We wish a happy Labor Day weekend to our American friends, and blessings and prosperity to all. Shabbat shalom.
