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?


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
