FIRST WARM DAY IN NY - WATCH OUT FOR CROCS!
Not the well known shoes, though perhaps you should keep clear if you’re so inclined. 
Today is the first actually warm day in New York in 2013.  If you’re out and about by Union Square, stop on in to YUM.  We’re free from 5-8 pm.  In the meantime, enjoy this wonderful image depicting the ancient Nile in a 1933 Haggadah.

Who wares white to visit the fields? Oh, right.  The dude in the straw hat.
When Zionist settlers arrived in the land of Israel from Europe, they brought—unsurprisingly—their customs and habits, and shaped them to fit the climate.  For example, you might see the person waring a white blazer with a straw hat—light material meant to keep him cool, and in style!

How do you like your sheep?  I hope walking through town is ok!  This postcard is from what is today one of the furthest northern and windiest towns in Israel.  Like many other Zionist settlements, it started as an agricultural community, and the trees whose birthdays we just celebrated, were planted to make the area more comfortable and habitable… and to give fruit.  You might note the absence of much in the way of trees outside of town.

Continuing with our tree-birthday fortnight, imagine yourself sauntering down this date grove in Rishon Le-Zion, one of the earliest Zionist agricultural settlements in the land of Israel.  If you’re lucky, the warm wispy wind might carry the sweet smell of ripening dates.  Yum!

AUTUMN IS THE TIME OF YEAR TO TRADE FLOWERS FOR FRUITS! HELLO TO FALL!
It’s right about this time that trees are starting to produce fruit. The man in this postcard enjoyed the flowering of the trees and is sure to enjoy just as much the almonds that are now on their way. A trip to an apple orchard or pumpkin farm is a favored activity for families in the fall and is sure to bring back happy memories from your childhood.
