Happy Purim, Everyone!
Last week's article examined Queen Esther - a major 'character' in the foundation of Purim. I hope you are able to spend some time during your Purim celebrations contemplating the women role models we have had in our history.
This week's column is about Jewish farmers. You may think those two words do NOT go hand in hand, but - hopefully - this article will change your mind and start you thinking more about what you eat and where it came from!
Do you know any Jewish farmers? High standards for farming can be found in the Torah. One might begin to wonder why we, Jews, are not eating more healthy, organic food from sustainable farms.
