“God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’

“Then God said, ‘I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it.'” (Genesis 1:28-29)

In this photo from the Holy Land, we see Yael Eckstein and her family enjoying a day at an olive tree grove, trees just like the Bible mentions in the story of Creation. Shabbat shalom, friends.
