Nostalgic glimpses of Shavuot from Israel of old
Wishes for a joyous and meaningful holiday
This coming Sunday and Monday will be Shavuot outside of Israel, so we will not be sending out our regular Monday column. The weekly podcast will be posted a couple of days later on the subject of how Israel handles the issue of abortion (given all the attention now being paid to Roe v. Wade).
In the meantime, a few photographs from “Nostalgia Online,” an Israeli website that curates such images. These are the pictures of the celebration of harvest (and new children!), photos of an era in which a tractor (see last image) was virtually sacred because of the rebirth, harvest and self-sufficiency it made possible.
Israel’s changed a lot since then, but the passion remains. That’s what we regularly explore in Israel from the Inside, and what we’ll continue to discuss after Shavuot.
To those observing, wishes for a meaningful holiday.
