Israel's botanical variety


"The Torah says (Leviticus 19), 'When you enter the land, you will plant trees producing every kind of food.'

"What does this teach?...That Israel does not lack anything, as it is also written (Deuteronomy 8), 'The land in which you will not lack anything.'"

(Talmud, Succah 35a)

Have a great day,
