Jews and Figs


"R’ Yuden said: This fig, in the beginning they collect it one by one, then two by two, then three by three, until they collect it with baskets and shovels. So in the beginning was Avraham, then Avraham and Yitzchak, then Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov, until “And the Jewish people bore fruit and spread and multiplied…”"

(Midrash, Bereishit Rabbah 46:1)

Have a great day,
