A Land Of Pickles: Eretz Israel According To A Toddler

Twice a week my two year-old daughter goes to a class for toddlers at our shul. Using colored clay they made the seven species for which Eretz Israel is praised.

When I got home from work on Tuesday night she proudly showed me her new "art" and told me about each of the seven species.

What do you have here?

"pomegranates......pickles....grapes.....oranges."*

How many species have you shown me?

"1, 2, 3, 5, 9 - 9 - 9"

And where can I find all of these?

"Eretz ISA'el"

--
* A listing of the seven species is found in Devarim 8:8
